We just lost our beloved Artie from surgery complications. He was an 8lb. fuzzball full of love. He was 9 yrs.old when he died and he suffered from a collapsed trachea. We controlled it as long as we could with medications, but eventually, he needed surgery for a stent placement. After the surgery, we noticed a big difference in his breathing and he only coughed a little bit after he drank water. Unfortunately, a few days later, he developed aspiration pneumonia and his little body couldn’t recover. My husband and I are very devastated because our lil boy brought a lot of joy to our lives. He was very sweet and we miss him terribly.
