Hunter's Surgery Fund

Hi all! My name is Kim and my beautiful chocolate lab Hunter has had to have emergency surgery on his stomach and intestines to remove a blockage. After two days in intensive care one of the incisions on his intestine was leaking and he had to have a secon surgery to correct the bacteria build-up so sepsis wouldn't set in. The surgeon removed 2 inches of his intestine and reconnected the intestine and made sure to flush his system again. The surgery was very unexpected and sadly his pet insurance no longer is covering any of the additional expenses.  We had to have a 3rd surgery where 1/3 of his intestine was removed and now we are hoping for the best. My beloved baby is a fighter and he's still hanging in there and we are still optimistic and fighting strong!

My most favorite and beloved baby is now recovering after his second surgery with two drains in him to help with the fluid and the surgeon said it was the best case scenario however we have a long journey ahead of us. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated as Hunter is the sweetest and most amazing dog ever and I would be lost without him. He's the most precious thing in my life and we are working to get him home. He has at least another 4 days in the hospital before it can even be considered for him to come home. 

Thank you again for any help. Anything is greatly appreciated. Love to all of you!
