All of East Springs Animal Hospital are trying to raise money to save a wonderful little lab puppy.

I work at an animal hospital and this 16 week old puppy came to us from the Humane Society with a broken leg after falling out of the back of a truck going down the highway. The Humane Society has limited funds to fix things, and they were able to pay for the surgery on the leg. We placed pins in the leg, however 2 days later they failed, so we had to do yet another surgery. The humane society was now up to about $1300 ( we give them a huge discount) however they were maxed out at this time. One of our receptionist decided that she would adopt him and save him from the Euthanasia that was sure to come because the Humane Society could pay for no more care on this little guy. She took this little boy home only to be forced to bring him back into the hospital because he was having trouble breathing and just wasn't right. They did xrays and determined he had blood building up around his lungs. They began treating with antibiotics because of this infection raging inside him. He continued to go down hill, his prognosis was not good. We then place a chest tube in to drain and flush the infection. We transferred him to an emergency center as he needed 24/7 care. When he came back to us after this past holiday weekend he was about the same, no worse but no better. He now has fluid in his lungs and it is making it hard for him to breath. He is a trooper though. He wags his tail every time even though he feel horrible inside. He is in pain and sometimes cry's out, but his new owner loves him with all she has, our staff loves him. We just ask for help, as his new owner never expected all of this to happen to such a sweet little boy.
