Special Appeal for
Please can you help us with poor Douglas
*****PLEASE NO OFFERS OF HOMES OR FOSTERS THANK YOU, FIRSTLY WE DONT EVEN KNOW IF THIS LITTLE LAD WILL PULL THROUGH BUT WE ALREADY HAVE A SUITABLE FOSTER HOME WAITING IF HE DOES THANK YOU****
So earlier today I received a call from one of our lovely vets Lucy, she had just admitted a VERY poorly pup into the practice, brought in by people who had purported to have bought the pup as an 8 week old vet checked dog!
They had no money to treat and thought a quick vet visit would then allow them to take him back home!, that was never going to happen, this poor baby is critically ill.
He was signed over to us so we could pick up his care and pay for the lifesaving treatment he needs.
Douglas as we have called him, is no older than 5-6 weeks, he is a Dogue De Bordeaux puppy and weighs a mere 2.3kg!
He arrived so cold that his temperature wouldn't even registers, totally flat, emaciated, dehydrated and with liquid pooh coming from him. Lucy got straight to work on him warming him up, administering vital life saving fluids, antibiotics and we have started him on anti viral treatment too as although he tested negative for Parvo we strongly believe this is what he has (or a similar horrible gastro virus).
He has now been transferred to the specialist veterinary hospital where he will received 24/7 critical care and is in the best hands, we will all be doing everything we can to try and help this little lad pull through and we will of course update you all as and when we have news.
Douglas treatment will run into hundreds of pounds, if you would like to help by making a donation towards his care you can do so either by PayPal to marked Douglas or by bank transfer to Wonky Pets Rescue Sort Code 206151 A/c 73300501 ref Douglas
Thank you so much and please keep this little chap in your thoughts, the next 24hrs are going to be critical.
