Five teeth on right side of jaw were crushed. He couldn't breath and lots of blood and crying.
We rushed him to our local emergency clinic where they said they didn't know what to do and could not do anything for him.
They gave him a pain killer and gave us a tank of oxygen because we decided to take him to Purdue University Vet Hospital in Lafayette, Indiana two hours from our home.
We called ahead and when we arrived a gurney was brought out for him. They got him stabilized in intensive care gave him IV w/meds and fluids and oxygen tent. That was Saturday night sunday morning.
They called their best orthopedic surgeon (who they said is the best in the country the teacher of teachers they said) and he saw Harry and ran a CAT scan to get further details.
He was stable enough to do surgery on Tuesday. The surgeon said it was worse than they saw on the CAT scan.
When he opened him up three pieces of his jaw fell out he said. He had two surgeons working on him. So they took out five teeth with the five jaw pieces. They had to repair his nasal cavity and his muzzle area. They did other repair work too that has technical language I don't recall.
Many stitches later, and no bone left on his right side of his muzzle but he is alive. So he had a three hour surgery and will need follow up care and Harry has no insurance, so I am asking for donations to help pay for all his surgery and care. He was severely traumatized.
His surgeons names our Dr. Lance and Dr. Mailard at Purdue University veterinarian Hospital and School. They were wonderful and bonded with Harry. They said he was a very good patient.
I will be taking him back to Purdue every week for therapy and re-check for 6 weeks at least.
Harry is a Natural Healer in our Spiritual shop Augustine's in Chicago, just ask Rev.Stitch Jones how Harry has helped him. He is full of joy and happiness and Gods blessings. I know this is a healing journey for all of us.
Peace and LOve and Blessings to all who prayed for and are praying for his recovery. And to all who read this posting. All your Love has transformed his healing and you all will be receiving all that love back in limitlessness. I love you all, Carolyn Hennes
