Britney Spears forced to rush her dog to vet clinic in the middle of her birthday celebrations

Britney Spears had to rush her dog to the vet on Friday (01.12.23) night.

The pop superstar celebrated her 42nd birthday on Saturday so had been spending the night before at her manager Cade Hudson's home in Los Angeles when the party had to be called off early so she could get her pooch some medical attention, according to TMZ.

The '...Baby One More Time' hitmaker - who was also joined by her brother Bryan Spears, 46, - had to "rush" her canine companion to the vet before dashing to a nearby gas station, in picture obtained by the outlet.

Britney later returned to the veterinary clinic but, according to the outlet, it remains unclear whether she left with her dog in tow.

It is also not clear which of Britney's dogs needed medical care.

Earlier this year, it was claimed that the 'Gimme More' hitmaker - who has become estranged from the rest of her immediate family since a conservatorship governed by them was terminated in November 2021 - was worried that her ex-husband Sam Asghari would try to take their dogs upon their divorce.

But TMZ reported that the pair decided their Doberman, Porsha, who he bought for Britney in October 2021 as a protection dog, will be his and she will keep their Australian Shepherd, Sawyer, a Yorkie named Hannah and two other small dogs.

The 'Toxic' hitmaker then acquired a Maltese pooch - whom she has named Snow - following the breakdown of her marriage.

Captioning a clip of her new canine companion, Britney wrote on Instagram: “Introducing Snow … the new edition to the family … it’s her world and we just live in it !!!”

She said in the video: “Let me show them how tiny you are.

“Say ‘hi’ Snow!”

Sam cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the estranged couple’s separation and has asked that Spears pay spousal support and his attorneys’ fees.
