Before you get to an initial story Max is in great need he was impaled while chasing a deer through the woods on Tuesday 5/21 he is still in hospital! He was impaled through his chest puncturing through his diaphragm and into part of his liver. He since has caught an infection in the wound in his chest. Rising costs are crippling us as his family please help if you can!!! Updates posted often!

Maximus aka Max our almost 7 year old Doberman Pinscher is in quite a predicament! On Tuesday May 21, 2019 Maximus was out for a walk in the woods his Mom (Meaghan), Dad (Jerry), and Fur-Sister (Ruby) looking for morel mushrooms and he was suddenly distracted by some deer and off he went. Max on his high speed somehow impaled himself causing a deep chest wound and suffered many fractured ribs and one severely broken and displaced causing him extreme pain and discomfort. He was referred to MSU Emergency Veterinary Hospital on the campus of Michigan State University. He arrived on Wednesday evening, where he has met with a multitude of vets and a Soft tissue Surgeon and an Orthopedic Surgeon. He is currently heavily medicated and on an antibiotic drip and waiting his turn for the OR. His next step is an exploratory surgery on the wound and rib displacement and then come up with a game plan. His initial quote at MSU is $4500 not including his home vet bill and possibly increase as time goes on and more is found out. Please help out Max’s Family endure this difficult time! Any little bit helps!

6/12/19 Sorry for the delay we’ve been trying to get back to some sort of normalcy. Today is Max’s 7th Birthday!!!!! Yay!!! Also on Monday at our checkup he got his wound drain removed and just has a giant bandage on his chest/ side he definitely is getting his energy back! Max is doing better and better every day! Another checkup in the morning! Also they gave us the stick that was inside him and I was amazed at the size! He’s a pretty tough pup! Thank you all again just wanted to keep everyone updated!

Sorry for the delay!!! We got to bring Max home yesterday! However we’re not through this yet! We have to go back down today to have him assessed with his drain and sutures to make sure he’s doing okay. His furry sisters have been surrounding him and are happy he is home! It’s weird trying to make sure he stays calm and gets lots of rest but it will be so worth it in the end! Thank you all so much!!!

This was our VERY short visit yesterday morning but cut short for great reasons!!! He got his chest tube out yesterday morning and is cleared to come home today!!!!!! We’re over the moon excited! Still trying to figure out the financial side of it but soooo thankful to all of you who have been so gracious and generous to donate to help Max! He will still have the drainage tube in his chest and his sutures and bolster sutures will remain until next week. Stay tuned until later today when we get him!!!!

Max LOVED our relaxation outside today! Doing great today still on track for hopefully coming home tomorrow or Thursday !! His stitches for his wound are surrounded by bolster sutures which are helping take tension off of the wound sutures do they can heal better! He also has a drain placed to keep the fluid out so it promotes healing as well. Looking forward to getting our boy back home and not have a 3hr round trip to see him for an hour or so each day so say a little prayer today for him . We’ll find out more definitive answers later tonight or in the morning! Thank you all!!!
