Friday 21st April 2023, River underwent an operation on his hind hock with ligament reconnection, at the cost of over $5,000. He came out of the operation into our care and only after 5 hours - rushed back to emergency vet care to find he has aspiration pneumonia and trauma caused to his kidneys from the anesthetic. He is in critical condition.
We are needing urgent help with his life-threatening aftercare, since Saturday 22nd April till Monday 24th April we are looking at a bill of over $16,000 to take him through till Friday 28th of this week for his ICU care.
We desperately need your help and would appreciate any kind donation you could afford to help us continue his emergency care.
We are happy to supply proof of costing and care via vet receipting.
