Star – Helped August 2013

This is Star’s memorial picture. She is the one who, after further diagnostics/exam, was unfortunately diagnosed with advanced cancer (tumor in the abdomen). This is her in her glory days of playing dress up – courtesy of her human sister. After spending the weekend with her family and saying their goodbyes, Star crossed the rainbow bridge today to be in peace and pain-free. Thoughts and prayers to the family.

Tink – Helped August 2013

The Sergei Foundation did all they could for this two-year old boxer. She had eaten a CD case, but it was about a week before. Surprisingly, she showed no outward signs of distress other than not eating. Blood work showed normal, X-rays, although it wouldn’t pick up plastic, didn’t show any abnormal gas patterns, and a barium test still didn’t find anything “emergency” related, although we agreed to do exploratory surgery given the pain in her belly.

This is Lilly. We were able to fund emergency bladder stone surgery for this little, six-pound girl! We couldn’t believe how large the stones were. She is home now resting comfortably.

Jake – Helped August 2013

This is Jake. He is a 2-year-old, part Persian cat. The owner let him out of the porch for a bit and he was attacked by a dog. Jake had a broken femur and hip and was about to undergo surgery to fix, but an overnight stay confirmed he really did not have feeling in his toes. Nerve damage required a leg amputation. Both Jake and 82 year old owner are happy to be reunited as euthanization was avoided with The Sergei Foundation’s help!

Achilles – Helped August 2013

This is Achilles. The gums and teeth on one side of his mouth were completely dangling from his jaw (not visible by pic – probably a good thing!). Hit by a car, or… kicked? He was missing for a day and came home spitting up blood. The Sergei Foundation was able to assist with vet care and surgery.
