URGENT CRISIS CASE: Wounded Pup
UPDATE #1: So, as we feared this isn't going to be a simple send home case. The current vet has diagnosed it as a wound that has abcessed. The current quote for everything is $667.20. We are working on a second quote to get the basics covered and take him back to the vet tomorrow or hopefully find his owners.
This pup showed up at a neighbor's house injured. They don't know who he belongs to, as he's not chipped.
He showed up with a swollen leg and a wound. He currently won't put weight on his foot, and she doesn't have the money to get him to see a vet.
Her Plea: This little baby always comes to our house we don't know who he belongs to but today he was sitting at our gate and his back leg is injured. I don't have money to take him to the vet. Does anyone know what I can do to help him or can anyone help him?
We told her we would pay for the emergency office visit ($47) and pain meds to get him at least comfortable, but that's all we can afford to promise unless we get the money to complete the estimate. She has him at the vet now and we're waiting to see what they want to do.
We are thinking probably a clip and clean, anti-inflammatories, pain meds, antibiotics and quite possibly X-rays to see if the leg is broken. Please help us raise the money to cover the care he needs...
We will post the estimate as soon as we get it... for now we are going to start the fundraiser at 200.
UPDATE #2: We got him a basic wound clean, a pain injection, antibiotic injection, pain meds to go home and antibiotics to go home. The finder will see how he does overnight and probably take him to a vet in the morning. We will keep everyone updated with what we know! Tonight's bill was 194.40. Thank you to everyone who donated so we could at least get this boy more comfortable.
