ROLLO NEEDS OUR URGENT HELP – DONATIONS NEEDED! LET’S DO THIS FOR ROLLO
WOW what a night our little fighter has had! Rollo’s surgery was successful thanks to the brilliant team at Baldivis Vet Hospital for taking care of him! However, we urgently need your help as this has come at a huge financial cost to our rescue and Rollo is not out of the woods yet. It was found that Rollo had quite a few horrible torsions within his intestines and a severely bloated and congested stomach (which was so enlarged it completely moved the position of his remaining digestional tract!) causing even more pain, torsions and cutting off the blood supply to the organs;
THANKFULLY for the close observations of his amazing foster carer Brooke and quick acting of our team and the caring veterinarians, none of Rollo’s digestional tract died or need to be removed, if it was left undetected any longer Rollo would not be with us now. During surgery to correct the torsions it was also discovered that Rollo had an unknown (never ever seen by the vets before!!!) parasite within his digestional tract which could have triggered the gas/inflamation/infection therefor having the domino effect to the condition he ended up in.
As this parasite has not been seen before or familiar to the treating veterinarians and colleagues, the best course of action is to aggressively treat to eradicate it, as a precaution his sibling will also be treated. The vet bills are in the thousands as we speak and expected to climb even higher. We had to do something and fast, and as it stands today it looks like Rollo is on the path to leading a better life. It’s just what we do, step in, in these types of cases. However, we now need you to help us out, to chip in.
We need to raise $3,000 which hopefully will cover at least the initial costs associated with Rollo’s surgery and recovery. As you sit back on the couch tonight, think of Rollo and our team working around the clock. Just $5 from 600 of you would get us over the line.
