Fawney was saved from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.
Believe it or not this girl is NOT pregnant. She is a victim of Hurricane Harvey. Hurricane Harvey continues to wreak havoc in Texas. Neighborhoods are still underwater and many people have been displaced from their homes, and will likely remain so for some time. Since Harvey hit land last week, thousands animals have been bravely rescued and brought to safety, our partners and rescue organizations are working around the clock. Many of these animals are facing HUGE medical issues. Most are in critical condition. This is one of their stories.
Meet the beautiful Fawney. She was saved from from Harris County shelter in Houston, in one of the most devastated areas from Harvey. Without help she would have been immediately euthanized. There simply is not enough resources to care for a critical animal like Fawney. Thank fully our partners at Rescue Dogs Rock are on the ground in Houston and stepped up to save this baby girl’s life. Now she needs your help!
Fawney is safe at a 24/7 Emergency Vet in TX. No, she is not pregnant, her body cavity is full of fluid. This is bad you guys. She arrived safely late yesterday and her initial diagnostics looks like a liver shunt as opposed to heart or kidney failure. That cannot be confirmed until an ultrasound can be done today. This sweet puppy is only 5 months old. Imagine how awful she must feel! She is on IV, pain medications and emergency staff are draining the fluid as needed. Full blood panel has also been run.
RDR volunteers are praying for the best possible outcome and hope you will join us! Fawn is the 26th dog they have taken in Texas in just the past couple days since Hurricane Harvey. Fawn’s ER bill for just the 1st 72 hours is $2500-3500! Surgery will at least double that.
After almost a week at the 24/7 ER vet in TX, she was released this morning. Fawney had many diagnostics done to determine the cause of her fluid filled body. At first it was thought to be right-side heart failure but an echocardiogram and xrays ruled that out. She next had an ultrasound and more blood tests abd a bile acids test which determined that the issue was actually her liver. Fawney was born with an abnormal liver and is in liver failure. This is devastating news because Rescue Dogs Rock wanted so badly to be able to "fix" her and give her the long and happy life. For now she's going to live every day to the fullest and her days are all filled with tons of love! Please continue to purchase our Fawney shirts and share her story. Her on going care will be extensive for Rescue Dogs Rock and they could use our help! With every purchase you can help give this innocent girl the emergency care she needs.
