Look at that face! You know you want to help that face!!!!
BL has sent along an update about Buddy. First the good stuff:
Buddy now likes to play ball. At first he was horrible at catching balls, but is getting better. His walking is also improving daily. At first he could hardly walk; now he is trotting short distances. He loves scratches and sleeps next to me as I work. He’s a really happy dog and should make someone very happy.
Thanks for your help so far. I have sent emails and phone calls to about 10 rescue groups so far, and heard back from one. That one (a lab rescue) is processing the information to see if they will accept Buddy. I think we will have better luck if I get him all his tests and vaccinations.Buddy will spend the next few days at my daughter.I am scheduling Buddy for vaccinations, tests and to be fixed later this week.I estimate the initial costs for Buddy, not counting the $300-$500 that Rescue Groups ask for in donation to be $1710.
Buddy Doctor visit $52 Anasthesia Check/Fix (checked w/vet) $520 Fecal check $51 Bordatella $37 Influenza $43 Lepto $37 Lyme $43 Heartworm screen $57 Cardiologist $700 Heartworm Prev – 6 mon $60 Lyme screen $50 Tick-Flea Prev – 3 mon $60 $1,710I already paid for a rabies shot so it is not in the above costs. The estimate for the cardiologist to check his potential arrhythmia came from my daughter that has a dog with arrhythmia and recently saw a cardiologist.I started a youcaring fundraiser, since they seem to charge the least in fees.Here is the link.
