December 2010 Pet of the Month: Pearl

pearlhartwig

Pearl is our 3 year old pug, and we are absolutely crazy about her! She has such a sweet demeanor and keeps us constantly laughing with her antics. Pearl’s hobbies include snorting, stealing socks from the laundry basket, general naughtiness, and pretending to be constantly hungry in hopes of scoring a treat. She truly is a member of our family, and we can’t imagine life without her.

In August, Pearl fell suddenly ill. We were so scared and had no idea what was going on. Dr. Hufnagel performed emergency surgery on Pearl to remove a blockage caused by bladder stones. We believe her bladder was only hours from rupturing. Dr. Hufnagel and his wonderful staff saved Pearl from what could have been a very grave outcome. Not only did they provide Pearl with excellent care, but they took the time to explain all the details behind her condition and to answer our many questions. We are forever grateful for their skill and kindness. Pearl loves being a patient at PMC of Edmond!
