HELP ME GET SEEN & ADOPTED!
10/10/2018 UPDATE- Drago had his consult this morning with Dr Tim, and as expected, amputation is necessary and will happen this evening. He is in the very best hands for his surgery and post-op care. Our pint-sized pittie has been a pleasure but after a full day of play, he is lame and in pain. So we want him to be pain free and lead a normal life and amputation is the answer to the trauma that caused all those broken bones.
Please help us raise the funds for his much needed surgery. We have many medical cases and we can only help the dire cases with your assistance.
We need to raise the funds ASAP for his necessary surgery so he can begin to live pain free. Please donate to his care.
8/13/18 UPDATE- Dragonfruit, aka DRAGO, had two expert medical evaluations- Radiographs prove multiple fractures in rear hind leg along with complete femural head break. Prognosis- amputation is suggested to ensure a pain free life after recovery. There is so much damage, trying to repair is expected to only cause more pain from arthritis later in life and also runs the risk of surgical obstacles. Also, Drago’s swollen face is not fluid filled so it’s probably from blunt force trauma. X-rays showed clear lungs and he has not presented with mucus yet, so unsure about cough origin. We are scared to think it’s trachea damage as he presented ligature marks around his throat. Skin diagnosis is still inconclusive. Drago has been relaxing at NYBC and is going for his last skin evaluation before he can have his rear leg amputation.
Drago is only 32lbs and is fairly young, about 1-2years old. This is so much trauma for this lovebug!
Please help us continue to help the dogs of NYC by contributing to his care.
7/29/18 UPDATE- Dragonfruit has left the building! Now known as Drago, our ACC survivor is in need of multiple treatments for different medical issues. He cannot bear weight in his rear leg, he is malnourished, has a golf ball size lump/abscess on his cheek, has a cough, has a patterned skin condition and HIS FRONT TEETH ARE BROKEN!
RESCUED* This little guy, Dragonfruit of Manhattan ACC, is in need of rescuing. NYBC has committed to him and will be transported directly to the hospital as soon as his stray hole is up. Found as a stray in Bronx, NY, he has a broken leg, a neck wound and a horrible skin condition. Let’s see if we can turn his life around! Please help us continue to help the dogs of NYC by contributing to his care.
