About the Campaign

Constant snorting,

getting worse, and now blood.

Lycaon (lie-cay-in) was found stray by Mary back in September. He was running in traffic in a residential area, but she managed to catch him after a few hours of work and got him to the local Humane Society. No one ever claimed him, and Mary adopted him.

When she first got him, he did have a cough or snort, but it wasn’t too bad. The thought was that is was probably Kennel Cough, basically a slight respiratory infection, and he got some antibiotics and that was that. But it got worse. At the end of the year he started wheezing and coughing really badly.

Now there are signs of blood in his nasal discharge:

A vet thought about allergies, and he got more antibiotics, but it only got worse and at one point poor Lycaon got in such a bad coughing fit that he threw up!

Since then Mary got some assistance finding another vet from the rescue group Tails of Mana, but both she and the rescue are short of funds. The doctor is offering the rescue discount, and Lycaon needs x-rays, and a number of tests. Maybe something is in his nasal area, like foxtails. Maybe he has a fungal infection. There are a number of possibilities.

Problem: He is getting depressed and now coughs and sneezes all day long non-stop. He is eating less and one day didn’t eat at all. Donations are only for him, and paid right to the vet for his care, so let’s get this boy figured out quick… he may not have much time, especially as recently Mary says it is getting worse everyday.
