BENEFITING: FETCHING COMPANIONS INCORPORATED
Have you ever heard a puppy scream in pain? It's a soul-crusher. You want to comfort the poor thing. You want to tell him that things will get better, but he doesn't understand - all he knows is searing pain. That's what's going on with sweet Captain. Captain is barely six months old and is the sweetest little boy anyone could want but has contracted diskospondylitis. This is a bacterial and/or fungal infection of the lumbar spinal area that results in excruciating pain and lameness. His tail is also involved and is fractured as well. Captain is seeing a specialist who is conducting tests to determine the best course of treatment. In the best case scenario, this will involve weeks or months of powerful antibiotics and frequent rechecks at the vet. It it's a severe case, surgery may be required.
The costs have already been high with the diagnosis and testing and it could amount to quite a bit more.
Captain is so worth it and we're hoping that you will help. Any amount no matter how small will help.
Thank-you so much from Fetching Companions and especially Captain!!!
