Tanner – Helped August 2014

Tanner is tough!  This is his pre-surgery pic.  He is now recovering from having a pin placed in his tibia (lower leg) to fix his broken leg from being hit by a car.  At 12-years young, we didn’t know what the prognosis would be, but the vet said “he is surprisingly in good health and very active!” and was approved for surgery last night.  He is still recovering so please say a prayer. This guy also got altered (neutered) at the same time as part of our funding parameters, so he is surely going through a lot at once.

Peedy – Helped August 2014

Meet Peedy! He was another lil’ guy who was whining and in pain, unable to walk. We helped him to get Xrays to see what was going on. Thankfully, a radiologist’s report indicated there should be no disc damage! We do not know the cause of Peedy’s pain, as he definitely did not want to have his back legs extended during the exam… but after a weekend of pain medication he is doing better and even being playful. Quick healing, Peedy!

L.A. – Helped August 2014

L.A. is a six-month old lab mix.  You can see he is holding his left leg up slightly as a result of being hit by a car.  The good news is that surgery is not needed!  We were able to pay for a vet exam and Xrays, and he does have a fractured humerus (upper arm), but that should heal on its own; splinting really isn’t an option for that part of the front leg. You’re a lucky pup, L.A.!

Sir Baxter – Helped August 2014

Sir Baxter is a 10-month old English Bulldog. He’s at Carolina Vet Specialists right now (8/2/14) about to get surgery for swallowing a pacifier. Did you know that if you have pet insurance, you can still apply to us for aid with your deductible?This is what Sir Baxter’s mom did. She met our income and past vet criteria and we were able to cover her $300 deductible.

Emma – Helped July 2014

Meet Emma. She went home today (7/29/14) after being at the vet since Friday. She lost her canine sister last week and the owners thought she was depressed when she stopped eating and vomited, but it was actually the start of kidney failure. A weekend of fluids helped and she now has a Rx diet for a road to recovery! Lots of love, Emma
