My baby is a 2 year old Pit and Cane Corso mix breed. I have had him since he was 10 weeks old. On Saturday 4/2/16 he was outside running and barking at a dog he seen passing the fence. I then noticed he started to fall to the side and cry out loudly. He began dragging his back legs and was unable to make it back to the door to come inside. I carried him inside and examined him for any noticeable injuries. I took him to a nearby 24 hour vet clinic that only gave him pain medication because they were afraid of him (breed) and sent me home. I slept with him on the couch just to keep him calm and comfortable. The next morning I carried him back outside to see if he needed to urinate, he was unable to. At that point I noticed his abdomen was extended and he was uncomfortable when I pressed on it. I took him to an advance care center (other than the 1st one that did nothing) They stated he has a FCE (FIBROCARTILAGENOUS EMBOLISM) which is a injury to his spinal cord caused by all of the running and jumping he was doing. He has been in the ICU at the vet center since 4/3/16 with a catheter in place and IV fluids and is under the care of a neurologist since he is still unable to urinate or walk. I am a single parent and we both desperately want Dook back home and the cost of his MRI, spinal tap and hospitalization is very unexpected. I am doing the best I can because I cant lose my baby! If you know of any grant programs please let me know and I will apply I have applied to 4 so far and been denied by one. Any information is helpful. I don't know how to reply to comments but FCE STANDS FOR FIBROCARTILAGENOUS EMBOLISM. Thanks for reading!
Please help us. My dog was hit by a car and the guy ran off! I haven't been able to work because of my sons medical issues. He may have autism and other factors. My credit is to bad for the carecredit and my bf has none. We need 2500$ by Monday December 7th (My Birthday) to get my dog his surgery he needs.(Been Extended to asap) He has a broken pelvis, bruised organs, Fractured ribs, fractured spine, and can't walk. His head was banged up pretty bad and he's miserable. We were unable to keep him at the vet through the weekend due to funds. Already had to lay out 450$ to take him home with pain medications and my car is about to be reposed. We have 900$ down on him now if you call up at the vet office. If I don't come up with the rest of the money today we'll have to amputate his leg (Something we really don't want to do) If all you can do is share this or say a prayer I would greatly appreciate it and so would our family.
Frankthedog posted a topic in Introduce yourselfHello, my name is Danny. My Pekingnese Frank took a tumble out of a second story window and tore a ligament in his left paw. I am trying desperately to reach out and try to find as many resources that I can to help with his expensive surgery. Any tips would be helpful. Thank you!
