Jack is hanging in there

24 Dec

Jack is still hanging in there.  He has had 2 immune-threapy vaccines and will have a third one on day 21.  Jack will most likely not show any improvement from this disease until day 45-60.   He is not out of the woods.  This is my vets first case.  He is staying at a vets house in Memphis who volunteered her time during the holidays.  He has stopped vomiting but still no weight gain even though he is getting fed every 30-45 min.  His stomach is just not absorbing nutrition.  A recent ultrasound showed severe thickening of the lining of the stomach.   It seems that his ulcers though have healed.  But the pythiosis is so bad it looks like cancer to a vet that has never done an ultrasound on a dog with pythiosis.  Since we have a definitive diagnosis we are continuing his care for that.  The vet has switched his meds to IM vs PO since he doesnt seem to be absorbing anything and that has helped him alot.  I hope after the holidays we can continue to do that which will give him a better chance at living.   Between 7 vets now and so many different tests we are close to $3000 in vet bills. Thank you to everyone who loves Jack and all the holiday angels Jacks bills have so far been paid except a few hundred, in which there is a Chip in Link for Jack. http://jmwolf114.chipin.com/jacks-medical-expenses.  Jack is being a good patient.  Hang in there Jack.

Rescue Jack!

11 Nov

Jack was brought back to our rescue after his owners could no longer care for his vet needs. All this is beyond their control and they miss Jack very much.  He was transported from TN to our vet in Jackson MS. He is under a vets care as I type this. Right now he is responding well to treatment but we have no definitive diagnosis of why he has lost weight and is vomiting. Keep Jack in your prayers and thoughts.  If you are an animal lover, Dalmatian lover or just have change/coins laying around please consider donating to Jacks Chip In. Every penny or dollar counts!!    You can also call donations directly into our vet which is on the chip in page.   You can also visit us on facebook!Image If you send a friends request on facebook send a message along with it and tell us you found us here as we have to pick and choose who we becomes friends with as there is a limit!  Sucky.   But we are thinking about opening another Facebook page for people who want to join and have the love for animals to donate toward ChipIns to reputable non profit rescues. I will keep you updated on Jack and our new facebook page.
