The mission of Dominique’s Smiles is to bring smiles and love into everyone’s life free of charge. We visit hospitals, nursing facilities, Ronald McDonald Houses, private homes, schools, and wherever else Dominique is needed to bring hope and sunshine into the lives of adults and children.
Dominique’s Emergency Surgery
Dominique had a bellyache. It’s called colic. He was in a lot of pain. He even had a temperature. His regular doctor had visited him earlier in the day to treat him. She performed a scan and found three sections in his small intestine were blocked.
There are many causes and types of colic and all should be taken seriously. Horses have long intestines, they cannot vomit and when something in the stomach hurts, they roll around on the ground. This in itself can cause problems, such as the intestines flipping, twisting and cutting off the blood supply.
That afternoon Dominique seemed a little better but by the middle of the evening he was shaking and in pain. Time to go! I called his vet and told her we were on the way to New Bolton Center.
