Bubbles, the latest on her pathology, her infection and her adopters

Bubbles, the Neapolitan Mastiff who was rescued by the rescue agency, Noah's Arks Rescue, is continuing her recovery after the surgical removal of a massive, nine pound tumor, but she is facing a bit of a hurdle in her recovery.

On Tuesday, the rescue agency released the following update:

the e-coli infection on her face is clearing up, she still has to be on an antibiotic for another week. The problem is that we have to take her off the Amikacin since she is showing signs of it weakening her kidneys.

We are in the process of doing an extended culture panel to see if we can come up with something else to use. The last panel we did showed the bacteria was ONLY resistant to the Amikacin.

She has been getting fluids along with the drug to protect her kidneys but that does not appear to be enough right now. We have several Specialists working on what to do next to rid her of the infection.

The upside is that Bubbles' pathology has been returned and it appears that amazingly, her bone margins are cancer free.

The stitches have been removed from Bubbles' face and she continues to make a remarkable recovery following her surgery.

Noah's Arks Rescue stated:

our sweet girl is loving Life and spending as much time as possible outside enjoying the beautiful weather we are having.

The rescue agency addressed the many inquiries about who the lucky family is to adopt Bubbles:

We never give out that information to protect people's privacy and the animals. We want Bubbles to have a normal Life just like any other dog. She will be with us for another month while her infection is going away and she has healed from her surgery. She will then begin her chemo and will come back every three weeks for her chemo sessions.
