An appeal for funds to cover Jake's surgery for bladder stones reached its target of P25,000 (around $500) in just a couple of days!
We rescued Jake back in January this year - you can read all about it on his profile page HERE.
A few days ago, we noticed he was having difficulty weeing so Doc Pierre suspected a UTI or Kidney stones. Yesterday he had blood dripping from his penis so we took him straight to Animal Wellness for ultrasound and urinary analysis. He has a lot of small stones in his bladder and if we don't remove them via surgery asap, he could be in a lot of trouble.
Doc Gama listened to his heart at the same time and he was totally relaxed, he is such a star. Even when we put the catheter in and pumped up his bladder for the ultrasound, he didn't even flinch.
We are going to do the surgery at Animal Wellness with Doc Gama as because of his age and the complexity of the surgery, we need special equipment that we don't have at the Sanctuary.
We want to give him the best chance of survival and recover. Surgery on an old dog is always risky, but we feel he is worth it.
Thanks to everyone who donated!
