Shattered Eye Socket, Dragged in Tar
Her right eye socket is shattered and her skull has fractures. This little chi is just a puppy, not more than six months old. She was hit by a car, and dragged through tar, which has mixed with dried blood in her eye and skin.
Originally we also thought her jaw was broken, but x-rays show it is not broken, she just cannot use it well and it is painful due to the fractures around the eye socket and skull. A CT-Scan is scheduled for Monday (10/7/19) followed by surgery.
Found on the side of the street in Moreno Valley, California on Friday (10/4/19) she was brought in to the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter.
They held her overnight, but on Saturday put out an urgent plea: A rescue had to take her Saturday, or she would be put to sleep. Her injuries were just too severe. Fortunately K911 ResQ arranged a last minute rescue, and got her out.
The rescue has named her “Survivor”. She has been to two vets, and is now at ACCESS Speciality Animal Hospital in Culver City, because they have the necessary equipment, including a CT-Scan machine, necessary for her surgery.
Cost of Care, and the Plan
Vet care at this type of speciality hospital is very expensive. She is in intensive care, which is charged by the hour. She needs constant monitoring, 24 hours, an IV and medications.
Survivor will be anesthetized for the CT-Scan, so to spare her multiple anesthesias, if surgery is deemed possible, the surgeon will perform it immediately after the CT-Scan, same day.
The low estimate is over $7000.00. The rescue needs all our help to save this little girl and cover her bill! The rescue spent all day Saturday from 8am to 11pm rescuing her, transporting her, and taking her to multiple vets! They have arranged a medical foster, skilled in dealing with dogs recovering from serious surgery, to care for Survivor after surgery. Your donation today is only for Survivor, paid for her specific care. Please donate in confidence.
This little girl needs a lot of help, and your help today gets her this life-saving surgery she urgently needs! WOOOOOOOF!!!
(This is what we have so far, more detailed documentation will be coming early in the week after she is reviewed by the specialist)
