* Nantucket is one of PAD Irish's Seaside Treasures. The litter was born 5/30 and raised to be service dogs in Phoenix Assistance Dogs, Paws with a Cause and 4 Paws for Abilities. Nantucket injured his leg on July 9th and was immediately seen by the vet, xrayed and put on Deremaxx and crate rest. However, it was quickly apparent that he wasn't improving as he should. He was seen and re-xrayed on July 21st when he was diagnosed with a growth plate injury off of his tibia bone in his back right leg. He was placed in the hospital and fitted with a cast immediately. Nantucket will be re-casted every 7 days. His prognosis won't be known until he continues to grow. He may have no lasting issues and grow normally, however, that leg could stop growing too. He will also see an orthopedic veterinarian to follow up and ensure that everything is being done that should be done! Your help will go towards his veterinary bills. He had his first recasting on 7/29/14 and as of now his leg is growing which means he can still be a service dog! His bills after all recasting if no complications arise will be around $2,500!
*Megatron is 7 month old lab in training, donated by a kind woman who rescued him. He had emergency surgery to remove a swallowed squeaker from his small intestines on 7/24. He is in recovery and will remain at the vet while his bowel heals. His surgery alone (not including xrays, medications, hospital stay) was $1,800.
