Prayers and support needed for this special little boy. Turned in to Hillside today, he is in critical condition. He was purchased at just six weeks of age (illegally). He is very sick. He has been having seizures on and off for the past few days. It was determined via ultrasound that he has a liver shunt. The blood that is supposed to pass through the liver and the liver is supposed to clean it is being re-routed by this shunt. In essence, the body is being poisoned by it’s own toxins that the body cannot rid itself of. His only option is surgery and he is in urgent car at the veterinary hospital right now. This all comes at a high cost. Can you help? The veterinarians feel surgery will help him live a normal life. Without surgery, he will die. We are asking for your support via a gift of any size to Joe’s Fund. He is very critical and we need you now more than ever. You can DONATE to Joe’s Fund to help us help this little fellow and so many like him who have come through our doors recently. We thank you so very much. From the bottom of our hearts, and his tiny puppy paws.
11/1/14 – Today he was taken to the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary Hospital. He will be having all kinds of preliminary screening and testing done this weekend, including a cat scan and several ultrasounds to rule out other genetic abnormalities. Monday he will see a specialist and then it will be determined which type of surgery he needs. At this point, the veterinarians cannot tell if the liver shunt goes through the liver or around, so there are a lot of variables that go in to what steps will happen next. What we do know for sure is that Wyatt the Wonder Pup is making lots of friends and is getting lots of hugs and kisses. He is so innocent and sweet! He had the typical husky howl today (his condition improved greatly since yesterday), and has even been spunky enough to want to try and rip his cone off! All of this extensive and expert care comes at a great price. The care to Monday is $3,000 and that does not include the surgery he will need, which is another $3,000-$3,500. So, yes, all totalled, we could be looking at $6,500 for Wyatt (and that doesn’t include what we already spent yesterday at our local vet). Crazy? Maybe we are. But, how could we possibly say no to this face?! He deserves love. He deserves a chance at a healthy, happy life. We are all in love with this little boy already. He is surely a heart breaker and we can only hope that YOU will find it in your heart to help us help Wyatt. His condition is a very serious one. We try and give each animal in our care every chance possible and we do our best to make sure they get everything they need. We would be lost without your support, and surely Wyatt would be too. A million thanks to Janine and Dan who took little Wyatt down to Philadelphia today. And a million more to our faithful supporters whom we trust will come through for Wyatt, as they have for so many animals in the past. Please consider a donation to Joe’s Fund, for Wyatt the Wonder Pup. From the bottom of my heart, and Wyatt’s puppy paws, thank you so very much
