She loves all animals, except Christmas beetles, but there is no animal she loves more than Rolly. Rolly is her 20 year old paint and he owns the biggest part of her heart. Rolly has been loved by so many and a massive part of his mums life for 19 years. He has been battling with a troubled hoof since July. What began as chronic abscesses led to his first surgery for a hoof resection where a benign tumour (Keratoma) was uncovered. He returned home for 8 weeks where he was paddock sound until his remaining heal moved and crushed healthy tissue and lamelle which required a second surgery to have a more extensive resection done. He bounced back and was sound until he presented very lame the day before he was due to go home. Lots of necrosis was found surrounding the pedal bone so he was forced to have his third surgery to remove the dead tissue and the necrotic part of his pedal bone. Rolly is in such good spirits and is doing well enjoying the pampered life at the hotel but he does want to go home to his mum. It is now feared he does not have adequate blood supply to a section of his pedal bone as surrounding tissue is not granulating as it should. He has excellent blood supply to the top of his hoof and underneath, there is just the troubled section that will not heal. He will be requiring a fourth surgery to remove more bone and tissue but as xrays are not showing a clear enough picture of what they are dealing with, it has been recommended that he travels to Gatton University to have a CT or CAT Scan in conjunction with arteriogram and Venogram this is what he needs to know what to do next.. more treatment if it is possible or give him wings let him go.
So far Rolly’s vet bill costs are fast approaching $20,000 which has been a huge struggle for his mum, to now need scans quoted at $3000 and a fourth surgery on top of that is where I would like to help her make it possible to give Rolly the help he needs.
