Chewy the Pomeranian's Amazing Recovery

January 1, 2020

Chewy Watson is a 10-year-old Pomeranian, who was brought to Illiana Veterinary Hospital for an exam due to weight loss and change in appetite. Chewy began vomiting a few days later, and because he didn’t return to his old self, we took chest x-rays.

In the x-rays, we found a very large mass on the left lung, so he was referred to the University of Wisconsin, where they performed surgery to remove the entire upper left lung lobe. Chewy has since returned home and is doing well with the excellent care the Watson family is providing.
