Meet Cha Cha


Cha Cha was brought in to Pet Emergency Center for not eating, vomiting, and severe diarrhea.

She tested negative for Parvo and went home with basic supportive care due to financial constraints. The next morning Cha Cha’s condition was deteriorating and she was brought back to the hospital. She was barley able to stand and her owners felt they were left with no option but to put her to sleep rather than watch her suffer.

The Pulido family had just received Cha Cha a few days prior from a family that no longer wanted her and she was only 4 months old. It was discovered that Cha Cha had a habit of chewing on clothing, like most puppies, and some cloth was seen in her vomit. It was determined that Cha Cha would need an abdominal exploratory surgery to remove any cloth that remained in her intestines.

Surgery would be Cha Cha’s only chance for survival, but her new family would not be able to afford the costs. The Chester Foundation stepped in and took car of finances so Cha Cha could receive her life saving surgery. To assist with the costs, Pet Emergency Center opted not to charge for the surgery.

A few days after surgery Cha Cha made a full recovery and was able to go home with pain medication and antibiotics to her forever home.
