Capone Needs Surgery for Tumors

99 posts in this topic

Diagnosis: Mass on paw and ribs
Down Payment for surgery: $844
5% of $844 for IMOM operating expenses: $43
Fundraising goal: $887

Neutered: Yes
Caseworker: Dawn

Owner's contribution: $1521 - vet is offering a payment plan for this remainder.  Surgery can happen after down payment is made.

FUND UPDATE:  Capone has ALL FUNDS RAISED
 

Capone is a 9 year old pit bull with 2 tumors that need to be surgically removed.

There is a painful benign mass on his paw and a mass under his rib, which is large and causing him breathing problems.   He needs a CBC, fine needle aspirates, and then surgery.

Here is some of what his mom has to say about him;

"Capone is a 9 yr old blue pitty that is so amazing. He adores cats and dogs and anyone he meets falls in love with him because of his big smile and wagging tail and larger than life personality he's my protector and best friend♡.

I am a single mom and I only work part time. Capone's masses were small at the time and I didn't address them because of my financial situation and used the wait and watch approach which I regret because these masses that started off slow and small are now in 3 months time large and effecting his everyday, He can't take the stairs because the tumor gets in the way and the one on his chest is causing him breathing issues and had I had them removed when they were smaller it wouldn't have been so expensive. I have a payment plan set up through the vet but I need to raise money for the down payment in order to do the surgery. If you can help in any way It would mean the world to me as I'm currently watching his larger than life personality fade away :( "

I wish I could afford to give at this time but I can't. But Please read this about turmeric it could help. It is great for the immune system and for inflammation. My dog and husband both had cysts and within a few days it took care of them and I know it has helped people with cancer. I give it to my dog twice a day in organic canned pumpkin. Here is just a few of links to start with. I use organic turmeric root that I get at a Natural grocery store.

I would also make sure he is on a good grain free dog food nothing from the grocery store. Turmeric really is amazing I have seen the results. They have

Hi

To save time. I know how that is. This link gives dosage

Feed turmeric, start with a few sprinkles of the dry powder on your dog's food and observe for any allergic reaction. If your dog seems OK, small breeds can get 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon, and larger breeds up to 2 teaspoons per day. A good rule of thumb is no more than 1/4 teaspoon for every 10 pounds of body weight.

I have seen this dosage as well on other sites.

I have a shihtzu, Molly and she is 15 lbs. I give her a little heaping 1/8 teaspoon twice a day (with her breakfast and evening meal). Give Capone a hug for me

Me again. Sorry I forgot to mention. With that turmeric it is VERY IMPORTANT TO ADD SOME BLACK PEPPER. I have a pepper mill and grind it fresh. If you could get an organic or grind it that would be the best. The black pepper helps to enhances the benefits and stays in the system longer.

Thanks so much .Im still trying to navigate my way through this site. 

It has been a very trying time for us. Btw the divorce and taking on a lesser paying job to work with my sons schedule and trying to keep our family stable and furbabies happy and healthy on my income. I'm taking on more contracts to help out with that and finding a vet such as i have is well.. no words!! And then finding your site through our rescue channels♡♡♡ I'm beyond greatful!! 

This is the first time I'm on the receiving end of donations as I explained in my emails...I have an emergency foster in my care as we speak!! Among other things I have going on with lost and found sites doing searches ect... but I'm sure a lot of members do the same as we have the same love for helping animals in need. 

I can't say enough about Capone he's the best and the sweetest soul ;) he's my baby....I always say he should be the poster child for all pits lol they have such a bad stigma because of media /Uneducated owners..Capone is gentle..happy go lucky and ugh would let someone rob us blind haha but his nature and love for all humans/creatures big and small >loves my ratty :) I don't know if there is anything in my power I wouldn't do to try and keep him by my side. Which is why I have been reaching out to organization after organization trying to seek help and looked forever it seems to find a vet to work with me and again I can't thank you enough and the members here. I finally have hope that he will be his once vibrant goofy self again. I know this is a journey and it may not be a fix all because of his age and health issues going on but knowing I did the best for him is enough for me 

Once again we thank you and the members here as I see a lot of pets are saved through donations through this site and I plan on paying it forward once I'm able to help another furbaby in need . :) take care
