This has been quite the turbulent week for Britney Spears.

The pop star's pet Yorkie, Hannah, is dangerously close to death, according to Radar Online.

Britney only just recently purchased the dog in November, and the pooch has been taken to the vet three times since then.

The most recent hospital stay lasted for a week, with Hannah finally being released on January 11. Hannah has been undergoing tests for her failing liver function, erratic temperature, and fluid in her lungs.

“Her condition remains unstable, and if it were not for Britney’s money and ability to pay the vet bills, Hannah would be dead by now,” says a source.

Britney purchased the dog for $1,800 from a store called Barkworks, which has recently come under fire for having sick animals and for false advertising. One branch of the store has even been shut down by the city. 

This comes at a tough time for Britney, as it was recently announced that she is not returning to The X Factor and has ended her engagement with Jason Trawick

Our thoughts are with Britney and her dog, as we hope that Hannah continues to get stronger than yesterday.
