Our Foster Dog, Pup-Eroni, is needing a live saving surgery, most likely caused by blunt force trauma abuse. He has a hernia that is so severe, that his intestines have moved up into his chest cavity, moved his heart to the side, and is causing him to not eat and difficulty breathing.
Pup-Eroni survived being a stray, then almost starved in the streets. When I picked him up from the shelter, off the Euthanasia list for Kennel Cough, he weighed half of his recommended body weight ~ only 6.8 pounds. Although he was only skin and bones, he was friendly and eager for love from the first moment. He has been eating well and gaining weight steadily over the past 5 weeks I have had him. This past weekend he wasn't feeling well. We took him to the Vet on Monday, believing he may have an infection of some sort, or kennel cough again. We were heartbroken to find out that he is suffering and will die if we can't help immediately. We covered the initial cost of the bloodwork and Xrays at our regular vet, Moon Valley Animal Hospital, in the amount of $534.30. However, the quote for the surgery at Vet Med in Phoenix is over $3700 !!!
We have decided we are going to see him through this, one way or another. The surgeon believes he has an excellent chance of making a full recovery and live to be a little old man. We also already put the $1200 surgical deposit on our credit card, which will be tough to pay off on our own.He is only 1 year old and so sweet. All the doctors remark how well he is considering his X-rays. They say it could have been a few things -----1) it could be congenital defect. 2) he could have had trauma of falling or being hit by a car before we got him five weeks ago 3) he could have been given a very hard kick from underneath him.
This poor sweet guy.
He has endured and survived so much already, I don't want him to only know 5 weeks of love before going over the Rainbow Bridge.
