Thank you for visiting our page. My family has started this page to support my brother, Matt and his dog, Hawkeye.Hawkeye was injured in a freak accident on October 24th and has been in critical condition every since. Hawk jumped into a grill fork, which passed by his right eye and half of the way through his brain. Remarkably his eye was undamaged in the accident, but his brain injury is much more serious than any damage that could have been inflicted to his eye. You never want to hear that a vet would like to write a paper on your pet's injury because it's "unprecedented," but that's where we are.

Hawk has been at Tufts Animal Hospital since the injury where he's had a CT Scan, been evaluated by multiple neurologists, an optometrist, and countless vets and vet techs. He's been given sedatives, pain medication, anti-seizure medication, high dose antibiotics to stave off infection and liquids. We are doing everything we can for Hawkeye and he's making improvements (standing with assistance stabilizing himself, eating on his own, becoming more alert, tracking objects and most importantly he clearly recognized Matt and wagged his tail for him). We are hoping for a complete recovery, after-which Hawkeye will need months (estimated at 6 months) of after-care for rehabilitation.

Hawkeye's medical care has come at a great expense, but he's worth it. Any help you could give would be put towards his vet bills and future rehabilitation needs.

Thank you for any help you can offer!
