[one_third] [/one_third][two_third_last] This 5 year old, beautiful boy came to us from a shelter in WV. When our volunteers picked him up he was covered in feces and confused. It wasn’t long before he started having grand mal seizures that were out of control. We figured he had been having them all along in the shelter and rolling in feces during them. We also noted that he had a growth on his foot that didn’t look good. We needed to get him to a specialist but first had to get his seizures under control. After months of trying to get the theraputic dosing he needed, his dedicated fosters drove him all the way from WV to Charlotte, NC to Carolina Vet Specialists. Xrays, blood tests, and biopsies were performed. A little scare with his heart sent us to a cardiologist for an evaluation. We know this: The tumor on his foot is a carcinoma. He has generalized lung disease and he has seizures. His heart is OK as it turns out. The plan for the tumor involved a decision to either amputate the entire rear leg in order to get clear margins, or simply remove the tumor. We opted for the latter so that his quality of life would be better.
This sweet boy has been through so much and he has another battle to face. His surgery is estimated to cost $1,800.We are hoping for a good outcome and that he can finally start to enjoy life. If you can help, Fred will be very greatful![/two_third_last]
