This little cutie is Prince!  Prince had severe vomiting and diarrhea for days and wouldn’t eat.  He lost more than a pound in 3 days, which is a lot when you’re only 7 lbs to start with!  His doctors were concerned that he may have eaten something and needed to perform exploratory surgery which his mama couldn’t afford. Luckily for Prince, VET Fund was able to step in to help pay for the surgery, and the doctors found severe pancreatitis!  Prince is on medications now and should be back on his feet in no time!

 

 

This sweet kid is Billy! Billy found out in January that he had some severe problems with his gallbladder. His doctors tried to manage him with medications and frequent rechecks, but his condition just kept getting worse. Finally the doctors suggested removing the gallbladder altogether to keep it from causing further problems.  Billy’s owner is in graduate school and couldn’t afford the surgery alone, so VET Fund stepped in to help get him through the surgery and on the road to recovery!

 

 

This adventurous guy is Luke!  Luke was a bit too excited about one of his favorite toys.  He ate the toy and it became lodged in his intestines.  He had to be hospitalized overnight and then needed emergency surgery which his family couldn’t afford.  Luckily VET Fund and our friends at Helping Hands were able to step in and Luke will be back on his next adventure in no time!

 

This sweet little guy is Prince Kai!  He was diagnosed with a dangerous hernia that needed to be repaired.  His owner couldn’t quite come up with the $3,000 needed for his surgery, so VET Fund stepped in and helped him get the surgery he needed.  Thanks so much to the wonderful surgeons and staff at Dogwood Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Center who made it all possible!

 

 

Everyone meet Peppercorn!  At only 4 months old he has already become the light of his family’s life, and a constant companion for his 5 human siblings with autism.  One evening Peppercorn decided to take a nap underneath the family van, and was accidentally run over!

This is Titus!  Poor Titus got out of his yard one night and was hit by a car!

This curious critter is Sativa!  This sweet little girl is only 2, and she was diagnosed with a disease that causes holes to develop in her teeth.  All of her teeth were so rotten that she stopped eating, and the only hope for her was to have them all removed.  Her mom, struggling with unemployment, turned to VET Fund for help and we were able to get Sativa’s rotten teeth removed and relieve her pain.

 

 

This is Lucky!  Poor guy got his name because he was the only pup out of his whole litter to survive.  Now 2 years later he was attacked by another animal and suffered massive internal trauma that required surgery.  VET Fund was able to pitch in and get Lucky through surgery and home to the family that loves him! Dad reports he’s resting comfortably with his favorite blanket!

 

 

Look at that face!  This is Luna May, and when she broke her leash on a walk and was hit by a car, her parents’ world stopped.  Poor little Luna had broken both of the bones in her forearm, and as 2 recent college graduates they just didn’t have the funds to fix the leg.  Faced with the alternative of amputating it, her parents reached out to VET Fund for help.  Thanks to all of your generous donations we were able to get Luna’s leg fixed and she is already trying to run again!

 

 

This sweet little face is Cody!  Poor Cody was hit by a car and sustained multiple fractures to his pelvis.  His family pooled all of the money that they could for his surgery but just couldn’t quite come up with enough.  VET Fund was able to fill that gap and get Cody the care he needed, and now he’s home bouncing around like it never happened!

 

 

Everyone meet Ty!  Ty suffered a terrible back injury which left him paralyzed in his hind end. At only 7 years old, he still had a lot of life in him, and his family wasn’t ready to give up without a fight.  They got him through thousands of dollars worth of surgery, which helped, but wasn’t enough to get him walking again.  With VET Fund’s help he has been getting the rehabilitation he needs and is getting stronger by the day!
