Chance, a 4 ½ year old male neutered border collie was referred to DoveLewis for emergency evaluation and treatment of an intestinal evisceration injury that had occurred when the dog fell 15 feet from a cliff to a ledge while on a trip in the Columbia Gorge area.

Luckily several veterinarians were at the site and able to immediately cover the contaminated segments so that Chance could be transported to a local hospital.
