Kelly Travis Gives Update on Her Dog Molly's Health
Kelly Travis Hamm is giving updates about her dog Molly after announcing she underwent surgery last week.
Kelly and Molly both appeared on Juan Pablo Galavis' season of "The Bachelor." Kelly even had the title "Dog Lover" listed as her occupation on the chyron. Kelly recently asked her followers and friends to "keep sweet Molly in your thoughts," revealing that her dog was hospitalized.
She didn’t give any specifics then, but she shared an Instagram update a day later. She wrote in her Instagram Story, "Molly update: she's not doing great. Her liver enzyme numbers and bilirubin are up from yesterday. They're going to try to add a steroid to her meds to get inflammation down."
Kelly explained her in Story that she and her husband Hunter Hamm "can't visit her" due to COVID-19.
Two days later, Kelly shared Molly was out of surgery after vets "placed a stent in the biliary tract."
She wrote, "We are hoping it will stay in place long enough for the inflammation and levels to go down. They also biopsied a spot on her liver."
Later in her note on her Instagram Story, Kelly shared, "I know it seems a bit strange to some that I would update my following on my dogs condition but most of you are from our bachelor days and fell in love with her after watching her on the show."
On Monday, Kelly shared some good news about Molly’s health. She posted a photo of Molly laying on the couch and wrote, "Molly is doing as well as expected. She's a bit tired on the pain meds but happy to be resting at home."
Getting cast on "The Bachelor" is tough as it is, but Molly was able to secure a spot because her mom couldn’t bear the thought of leaving for so long.
Kelly told People in 2014, "Producers asked what I was hesitant about. I didn’t want to board my dog for nine weeks, so I jokingly said, 'Can I bring my dog?' They said, 'Sure.' I didn’t realize that no one had ever brought a dog on, or that it was going to be such a big deal."
According to Kelly, the other women in the house "loved" Molly.
Kelly shared, "She’s a great dog. She did great in the house. There were girls who were jealous. Chelsie loves her dog and throws it birthday parties, and she told me she wished she had her dog. Two girls weren’t dog people, which I understand, but after night two in the house, everyone adored her. She makes it feel like a home."
Get better soon, Molly! Our thoughts are with you.
