Jeff is a Basset Hound puppy who came to us with intussusception which is when the intestines telescope in on themselves. Left untreated, intussusception can kill the animal – or human – affected by it.
This actually happened twice with Jeff. Luckily when Dr. Annie Lo, a board-certified surgeon, went in to reverse the intussusception, it had self-corrected so fixing it with surgery wasn’t necessary!
She also took samples to biopsy to be sure this pup was healthy. Dr. Steven Centola (pictured) also oversaw Jeff’s care while he was in the hospital and much like everyone else at ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital – Los Angeles, he fell in love with Jeff!
