Ryley is a ten week old male border collie pup. I bought him from a breeder to help cope with my PTSD. A week after I bought him I found out that he was born with a nose defect, a hole in his septum. He already had a small virus by then which was treated with antibiotics, only Ryley's condition didn't get any better. 

Ryley was on antibiotics for two weeks before he was taken back to the vet to check out increasing lymph nodes and a raw nose. The vet diagnosed Ryley with what he guessed was a flesh eating fungus that had started in the hole in his septum and was working its way around his left nostril. The vet didn't have the equipment to accurately diagnose Ryley and doesn't have the antibiotics to treat the fungus. 

Ryley will need to be sent to WSU in Pullman, Washington to be accurately treated. He will require soft tissue surgery to fix the damage caused to his nose and to close the hole in his septum. 

The fungal infection is growing at an alarming rate and if isn't treated soon, too much damage will be caused and there won't be any other choices but to put poor Ryley to sleep. Please help me fight this infection and keep Ryley alive.
