Bowel Obstruction! An Expensive ER Bill!

Even in the most diligent foster homes stuff happens. When Frosty's foster mom called to say he was off and described his symptoms we knew immediately he had to go to the ER. Because this stuff always happens after your veterinarian is closed .... (this is why it is important to always know the location of the closest after hours or 24/hour Veterinary Hospital) At the end of this post there is a video to her you recognize the symptoms of an obstruction.. But if you have any suspicion go directly to a veterinarian to be sure!

Being a normal curious puppy Frosty secretly ingested what we now know was sock. A tube sock that lived in his digestive system happily, for who knows how long... ... till it didn't. Once at the ER an X-ray was able to confirm our fears and Frosty went quickly into surgery... with a bowel obstruction time is of the essence so we had to move fast to save his life.

Glad to say that after emergency surgery, good medications, loving care, a little bit of time and just about $3,000 Frosty is back to his usual happy puppy self.

$$$$$$ THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS! Fortunately Rescue had the emergency funds to approve this surgery and safe Frosty but now we are looking to build back up our emergency funds. Keep in mind this is in addition to our normal monthly veterinary bills. As an all volunteer 501c all donations go directly to the care of our danes

WE are happy to say that Frosty has found the perfect FURever home now that he is all fixed up. His family totally understands the importance of high supervision for a puppy and has experience with vision/hearing impaired danes. So after all that drama and a dent in our bank account please consider donating so we can continue to save more danes from socks, heart worms, and anything else they need to find PAWfect FURever homes.
