Hank needs wheels to recover from spinal swelling resulting in paralysis of his back legs. We are hoping Hank is able to regain function, but please help us help him be mobile during recovery! XoxoxoX More ...
Last Sunday when Hank woke up we thought his bad hips were bothering him. He wouldn't sit down and he was walking like he was drunk. Within 3 hours, his back legs and tail were completely paralyzed. We rushed him to the ER vet where they took X-rays and found that he has some spinal swelling. So far he has not made any progress, but he still has pain response. Since there is no break or any severe issue there is very little we can do except for wait. This sometimes takes months on steroids for a full recovery, and our options are to get him wheels or let him drag his back legs around and wear a diaper. We are very hopeful for Hank's recovery but we know that any amount of stress on his bad hips will cause more issues down the line, ending in immobility and less years with our boy anyway. So, we need wheels. Hank's vet bills are going to be pretty intense since he is going to need to be there for about a week before we can get him home. We are covering that bill with savings and tax refund. We would never ask for help if it wasn't urgently necessary.
If you, or anyone you know, has met Hank you know what a special boy he is. He is only 6, he will be 7 in March. He is not suffering or in pain, he just wants to come home.
Please know how much we appreciate every dollar, and that we will pay it forward in 550 ways, if it is the last thing we do!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
