Coleman is having seizures and diagnosed with a deadly condition.

Coleman is having seizures and diagnosed with a deadly condition.

 

An 8 week old puppy was rushed into the emergency care by a rescue called The Arrow Fund. The first night, Coleman was given aggressive antibiotics, IV fluids and wrapped in warming blankets. To rule out any infections, tests were ordered, but doctors had difficulty getting blood and urine. He had a seizure right after he arrived at the vet, followed by periodic tremors. After having another seizure, he was administered Phenobarbital.

Coleman has been hypothermic, meaning he has a low body temperature; it has been fluctuating, going as low as 92 and has not risen above 97.

It has been a tense 36 hours but tiny Coleman is a fighter and he must've felt the love and prayers of The Arrow Fund rescue and your support! He is not out of the woods yet but we are hopeful that we now know what is going on with our little guy.

Doctors diagnosed him with a condition called Hydrocephalus, which is excess fluid in the skull that places pressure on the brain. They proceeded with treating Coleman for Hydrocephalus by continuing the Phenobarbital, and starting him on corticosteroids and diuretics. And since beginning treatment for Hydrocephalus, doctors have seen improvements.

UPDATE 11-26-18: Coleman was transported to VCA in FIshers, Indiana and is under the care of Dr. Johnny Cross. Dr. Cross is a neurologist/neurosurgeon. Several tests have been run and he is still being evaluated and medicines are being adjusted. He does have a high white cell count. Thankfully Coleman has not suffered any more seizures.

Coleman is being kept comfortable. He is eating great and loves talking to the staff! When not being treated Coleman will go back and forth with his amazing foster Lisa who works at VCA. Thank you Lisa! We also want to thank Anita Holt for transporting our baby to VCA.

Coleman is too tiny to undergo anesthesia for an MRI . We are hoping in two weeks , if stable, we can proceed with an MRI of the brain. Surgery is indeed a possibility, depending on the results of his MRI. We will do all we can to help this innocent baby .

Now we are asking for your help. His care is a huge expense for The Arrow Fund. We are here to help.

Please consider purchasing one of Coleman’s products you see below to help raise the funds for his care. With every purchase you can help rescuers give this stay puppy the care he desperately needs!
