Help us Help Ciroqu

9/29/2017: Ciroqu has a clean bill of health! Dr. Emilie Setlakwe was very pleased with how well he has done! No more ulcers!!! Woo hooo!!!!

No more medications!! Continues with his Equine Senior Feed and Alfalfa Pellet mash as we have been doing. We can now start to reintroduce Timothy Hay and/or HiFiber Chopped Hay. No Coastal Hay.

Ciroqu's medical expenses to date are: $8610.59 - this includes his pre-hospital workup (treatment), hospitalization, medications, post-hospital check up and lab work and post treatment repeat gastroscope

We would like to shout a BIG THANK YOU to Dr. Emilie w/Tryon Equine Hospital for getting to the bottom of his sickness, helping our boy to recover and for being there every step of the way through this journey.

Another BIG THANK YOU to Dr. Wessinger w/Cleveland Park Animal Hospital for helping us with the urgent care initially and his follow up hospital stay lab work and recheck as well as the years of care he has provided our boy!

And the BIGGEST THANK YOU OF THEM ALL.....To all of you! Thank you for your support and donations and words of encouragement through Ciroqu's and our journey!

As of 8/31/17-WE ARE SHOUTING THIS FROM THE ROOFTOPS!!! Biopsy results came back with no cancer!!! It is severe ulcers as the doctor thought. Thank you everyone for the prayers!!


8/25/17 - Ciroqu has been admitted to Tryon Equine Hospital and could be facing surgery for Colic.

Ciroqu has had a hard life, we met him 4 years ago and fell in love immediately. Ciroqu was very underweight when we purchased him 4 years ago and we have worked very hard to get him back up to good health. The neglect he indured resulted in very bad teeth and extreme weight loss. This photo was when we bought him in Sept 2013.

Slowly showing progress, top pic was July 2014, bottom pic was Feb 2014.

He has done amazingly well since we've had him. He has impacted my life in so many ways. Ciroqu has helped me through some difficult times in my life, when no one else could. He is my heart horse, he means the world to me, and no one could replace him.

Ciroqu is the first horse I've ever owned. I love him more than words can describe.

Please donate to help cover medical bills and help us rescue him one more time. We have been quoted, medical expenses anywhere from $3,000 to $10,000. Every donation helps no matter how big or small.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart and my families.
