About the Campaign

That’s a big tumor!

It has really grown in the last few months, and is now in danger of rupturing, which would be life-threatening.

******

Update: Thanks to donations Baby had her CT-Scan!!! 

The doctor has determined that the best route is amputation of the arm. Three-legged dogs do just fine, and this is not a big deal compared to the benefits: end of pain and discomfort and, of course, life saving! A donations from now are to get this surgery for Baby! Thank you!

Baby’s CT-scan was a total of $1140, and about $4000 is needed for the surgery, or $5000 total, which is what we are seeking in this fundraiser.

******

Baby was found stray as a puppy by relatives of Lupe, but they could not have a dog in their apartment, so Lupe took Baby in. Lupe already had a Husky that was about the same age (8-10 months) and the two dog became best friends, playing together all the time!

Baby had this small bump on his shoulder starting nearly 2 years-ago, but it was always small, and Baby was otherwise healthy and normal, so Lupe didn’t do much about it. She is 77 years-old, and on disability, having been injured 20 years ago she walks with a cane. And some years ago she fell and had further injuries.

In 2020 the little lump suddenly started growing, and when Lupe got her COVID Stimulus payment she used it to take Baby to the vet. Unfortunately she sort of got bounced around from vet to vet and perhaps spent more than she should have…. the first vet didn’t really take it seriously, a second vet didn’t think treatment was possible, but finally a third took the case seriously and was sure Baby could be helped, but this vet wanted Baby to see a specialist. This is never cheap!

However, it turned out to be a good idea as the specialist was able to come up with a plan for Baby, and believes he can be treated successfully. But, it will not be cheap. They hope to save Baby’s arm, but they need to do a CT-scan to determine exactly where the tumor as grown. X-rays will not provide the information they need because it is soft tissue the doctor needs to look at. Baby may have to have his arm amputated, depending on where the tumor has grown, but so far Baby is not showing any pain and is using the arm normally, so hopefully amputation won’t be needed.

The surgery, the CT-scan, it is expensive and Lupe does not have savings. All donations are held by us in a fund only for Baby, and are only paid to the veterinarian for Baby’s procedure. If the procedure is not performed, donations will be refunded. Can you help Baby today? If we all donate a little, we can make a BIG impact on this sweet dog’s life! Thank you.

    I’m sure that a lot of people are saying prayers for this dog, in addition to donating.

    I thought the specialist he would not need to amputate the right front leg?

      No, the CT-scan was to determine if it could be done. And either way, how to do it if it could be done; or where the amputation would be needed if it was.

      Unfortunately the CT-scan showed that the tumor had grown into the arm in such a way that amputation was the only proper path.
