Tandy is a paralyze puppy dumped by a breeder to be euthanized!
Let's all make our Christmas gifts about saving Tandy! Tandy is a puppy that was born abnormally formed acetabular rims (at the hip joints) to a breeder. So the breeder sent Tandy to be euthanized. Thanks to the quick action of the Arrow Fund, she was saved from being euthanized and taken to the ER.
Tandy was unable to walk with both of her legs splaying out to each side. Tandy is incontinent with both feces and urine output. She received a urogram yesterday, this radiopaque dye was injected so doctors were able to trace the path of urine through her body and check for any abnormalities. The urogram validated that both her ureters are patent and functioning properly.
On intake, Tandy had bloody stool and her rectum was protruding five times normal size! This was making it very painful for her have normal bowel movements! Tandy was heavily parasitized causing constipation and further contributing to her inability to have normal bowel movements.
She has been fully dewormed and is receiving therapy on her rear end to help calm the inflammation. This type of specialty care is costly for The Arrow Fund and we are here to help raise the funds needed to continue to care for Tandy.
UPDATE 12-3-18: Tandy has physical therapy weekly with Blue Pearl to strengthen her back legs. This includes the underwater treadmill as well as the wobble board. She is also getting acupuncture and laser therapy to help her inflamed and sore rear-end.
Vets believe that Tandy has Spina Bifida. Despite all of Tandy’s “challenges” and need for constant care, she is such a happy girl, in no pain and loves playing with all her fur brothers and sisters, including Vinny the pig!
To help this baby please consider purchasing one of her products you see below to help raise the funds for their specialty care. With every purchase you can save Tandy and help her walk on her own one day. Let's all make our Christmas gifts about saving Tandy!
