A duffel bag filled with not one, not two, but three 10-week-old puppies was recently found at the intersection of Seven Mile and Schoenherr in Detroit. One of the puppies, now named Cardi Puppy aka Cardi P., was suffering from a prolapsed rectum due to the severity of parasitic infestation. This is why it is extremely important for newborn puppies to get dewormed, as the vast majority of puppies are born with roundworms or hookworms passed from their mothers. Luckily for little Cardi P., the compassionate team at Detroit Dog Rescue had her rushed to the vet for life-saving surgery.

According to Kristina Rinaldi, executive director for Detroit Dog Rescue, three inches of Cardi’s intestine had to be removed due to the necrosis that had started to set in. Rinaldi adds, “Those parasites are multiplying … and for that puppy, it feels like they have to go potty constantly. So they are pushing, putting pressure on their rectum and eventually, that rectum can prolapse.”

Dr. Hood and Dr. Shencopp at Greenfield Animal Hospital performed the emergency surgery, which went flawlessly, but Cardi isn’t out of the woods quite yet. This sweet little girl will need all the love, support, and care she can get to become the healthy and happy puppy she deserves to be. 

 

Cardi’s recovery is expected to take several weeks and possibly months. Detroit Dog Rescue is asking for donations no matter how small, to help with the cost of Cardi’s care. They are also requesting that anyone who may have tips pertaining to who abandoned the puppies to go to the Detroit Dog Rescue website where they can leave an anonymous message.
