Paolo spent a week at the hospital growing stronger with IV antibiotics, fluids, and plasma. He also had oxygen and a feeding tube during his stay. They had to keep him in a small stall of his own where Donatella could only watch him, as he was too weak to stay with her. His joints still needed to harden into bone. After 4 days, they were allowed to be together again.
When he was strong enough, Paolo came back to the Equine Reproduction lab on stall rest with weekly X-Rays to monitor his bone development.
Unfortunately, he developed pneumonia on Sunday and is now back in the hospital. The veterinary team is doing a great job, and hopefully we can bring Paolo home soon!
We are looking for help to provide the care this little guy needs. He is a real fighter- beating the odds every time. Paolo has a good chance for a healthy, athletic life. As long as he's still happy and has a bright future, we will fight for him. Any donation would be greatly appreciated and will go directly towards Paolo's veterinary care.
Donating is easy- just click on one of the Reward Levels or the big blue Donate button near the top. Then, share Paolo's story and help spread the word. Thanks!!
