McGowan didn't provide any additional information on the dog's health.

The actress first introduced the pup to her followers in March 2020, revealing that she got Pearl as an emotional support animal.

"Since I've had her only a few nightmares have woken me up sweating and shaking, it used to be 2-3 times a night. It's an amazing feeling to not have night terrors. I know a lot of you can relate," she explained on Instagram at the time.

She also told her followers that Pearl isn't a rescue dog like her four other furry friends, but still urged people to adopt their pets. She also noted that she donates monthly to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

"I am so grateful this little being has come into my life as a healing force for good. I intend to make every one of her days happy," she added.
