Munchkin

Diaphragmatic Hernia

Meet little, adorable, sweet, 12-week old Munchkin weighing in at only 1.2 lbs. She came to our Racine pet hospital after one of the family members tripped over her. (Which would be easy to do considering how tiny she is!) Unfortunately, she suffered a diaphragmatic hernia and 2 fractured ribs. Dr. Meinen performed the surgery to reattach the diaphragm. Munchkin recovered well from surgery and, with additional rest at home, is doing well and getting stronger each day. Thanks to her wonderful family for sharing her story and sending these great photos!
