Pascal was found unresponsive on the side of the road in a rural county.
An unwanted stray was found unresponsive on the side of the road in a rural county in Kentucky. An emergency surgeon was called in to save his life.
The injuries were horrendous and The Arrow Fund was told he had a 50% chance of survival. He has a name for the first time in his life, Pascal. Two procedures were performed in one emergency surgery. An abdominal surgery and leg amputation. He is resting and on IV antibiotics, fluids, and proper pain medication
The surgery was performed late last night. His pelvis was fractured on the same side, but with the weight of that leg being gone, the doctor is hopeful it will heal with time. He also has a luxation of the sacroiliac, which is being monitored.
He has low protein and his PCV levels are being monitored they were extremely low. A nasogastric tube was inserted to make sure he gets proper nutrition. He did eat a small amount of chicken, on his own this morning ,which is a great sign.
UPDATE 4-26-19: Pascal pulled through his surgery and is even giving kisses to his nurse. His abdomen and entire lower body is completely bruised and swollen. Thankfully no active bleeding was found in his abdomen.
Pascal has a long road of recovery ahead of him. We have created the animal saving products you see below to help raise the funds needed to cover the costs of Pascal’s surgery. We ask that you consider purchasing one of these items and help support The Arrow Fund save his life.
