Jupiter needs our help right away! This eight year old Great Dane was surrendered by his owner to the California City Shelter claiming they couldn't keep a handle on his allergies.

Jupiter is currently 113lb and is still easily 30 pounds underweight. His skin is very irritated red and raw. We got him today after a couple shelter volunteers drove him to Bakersfield and we immediately rushed him to our local emergency vet.

Initial blood work looks good and the Drs suspect major allergy issues which can be helped. Full body X-rays revealed a surprise tho, he has a screw in his stomach! We don't know how long ago he swallowed it or how quickly it's passing thru his intestines but it needs to be removed IMMEDIATELY!

We contacted the vets at VCA west Los Angeles who agreed and offered to stay after their shift to perform an emergency scope to remove the screw.

The damage this tiny screw could cause is life threatening. We have all the confidence in our vet staff and are anxious to get him back home and showered with TLC. He will be on a few antibiotics and fed a very high quality food. If further tests need to be done we won't hesitate. Right now emergency funds are needed to get this BIG guy Jupiter stable. 

Thank you Mutt Militia for what we know will be another life saved!  Please give if you can!
