Lola, an 8 year old female Yorkshire Terrier, started vomiting for the last couple of days and her pet mom noted that a swelling in her groin had started to grow during that time.  Dr. Park at Vets In Vans examined Lola and new right away that she had a hernia in her groin region (inguinal hernia) and that a loop of bowel had been caught causing the vomiting.  Lola was in need of surgery right away or the segment of intestine could die!  SAGE Compassion for Animals was able to approve a grant for the surgery to take place that day.  Lola recovered well – and was even spayed at the same time!
