Zazu's Emergency Veterinarian Bills

Zazu is an Ivory Billed Aracari who hatched on May 2, 2017. If he pulls through this, he'll be 8 months old on January 2, 2018. It's been an extremely stressful night as I spent 6 hours at the emergency vet with Zazu last night. No one has a clue as to what happened but his trachea spontaneously ruptured and required emergency surgery to repair. He is still at the clinic for observation until this afternoon. We are not out of the woods yet and will require a follow-up endoscopy to make sure there's no redundant healing. If that takes place, additional surgery will be required since it can close his trachea over time. This was an extremely costly procedure and we're looking at around $4 thousand dollars in vet bills if everything heals correctly... We're in desperate need of help to continue to give Zazu the love, support, and care he needs through this difficult time. Anything at all helps. Please, please, please keep my baby boy in your thoughts. I'm honestly heartbroken he had to go through this to begin with and am mortified by the thought of losing him. I'll be updating with a photo of the final bill once it is available to be. Thank you, Jess and Zazu
