Slate was virtually destroyed from neglect and abuse.

Slate was virtually destroyed from neglect and abuse.

 

I don’t know where to begin. This is a graphic case of neglect and abuse. Our partners at the Arrow Fund were alerted to a 12 year old senior Beagle that had an ulcerated tumor on his back leg. All rescuers were told is that he needed out or he would be euthanized.

Slate’s entire body smells like rotting flesh. The tumor is awful. Slate’s skin has most likely a bacterial infection that has never been treated. His breath was just awful and upon looking in his mouth, he had hair and debris wrapped around his teeth. Quite sad. Volunteers have rushed Slate to the ER.

Doctors discovered his belly is distended and his liver enzymes are high. He will be on fluids and high doses of pain medications. Slate did not feel great after his procedures. The biopsy of the tumor will be sent for pathology. His teeth and gums will need a specialist in dental care, but first they will address this horrid tumor.

Slate does have a treatment plan from the Dermatologist in place for a bacterial skin infection and ear infections. Despite the pain and neglected this boy has such a gentle spirit but is fighting for his life. Will you help?


UPDATE: We just received word that the tumor is indeed benign! This means there is a good chance Dr. Josh Bruce can save his leg when they remove the tumor in a few weeks! The Arrow Fund is overjoyed! Slate will need to go see a surgeon who specializes in Dentistry. At this point doctors have removed part of the debris and hair wrapped around his teeth and gums but he will require a specialist. His poor mouth is a mess. But step by step we will walk this boy through and he will finally live a life being cherished. He still needs your help!


UPDATE: Slate had surgery to remove the ulcerated tumor from his thigh. Preliminary tests have revealed it is benign. In addition to this tumor , two smaller ones, were removed . All will still go out for pathology. Slate had to recover from horrid bacterial skin infections before doctors could remove the tumors. His neck is still very irritated but he saw the Dermatologist earlier this week and he is on a new treatment plan. Poor Slate still is being treated for ear infections in both ears.

We have partnered with TAF to help raise the funds they need to save Slate. His emergency bills will be extremely high including emergency care and biopsy for the tumor. That is not the type of funds rescuers have.

To help Slate please consider purchasing one of his shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below. We have partnered with TAF to create these animal saving products to raise the funds needed care for Slate.
