Iggy needs an MRI

Introducing Iggy-One pug puppy’s rescue journey......

Iggy was born September 8, 2019. When Iggy was several months old he was sold to a pet store in Florida. During his time at the pet store, Iggy was having seizures and exhibiting neurological abnormalities. GMPR was told that Iggy saw a veterinarian while in Florida and a neurological exam was recommended, but not followed through on. At this point, a local rescue stepped in and Iggy was surrendered and transported to a veterinary clinic in Ohio. Fortunately for Iggy and GMPR, GMPR’s participates with the Puppy Mill Rescue Team (PMRT). PMRT works with a number of veterinary clinics in Ohio, triaging puppy mill dog surrenders to participating rescues.  One of the PMRT’s participating veterinary clinics called GMPR and asked for help, Iggy needed to be rescued by a dedicated, experienced rescue and GMPR was happy to step up and take him.

Iggy came into GMPR as a foster on February 8, 2020. Since he came into GMPR, Iggy has had a full veterinary examination including blood work and seen a veterinary neurologist for evaluation, medication management and discussion of treatment options. Iggy’s initial diagnosis is myoclonic focal seizures. Iggy’s seizures have continued, 2 different types of meds given 3 times a day have helped keep the seizures contained and mostly manageable. As breakthrough seizures have occurred, his medication has been increased. Based on his primary veterinarian and neurologist recommendations, GMPR has scheduled Iggy for an MRI. We want him to have every opportunity for a happy and healthy life and hope that narrowing down what is causing the seizures can help with his treatment.

It takes a village-GMPR is asking for your contribution to help with Iggy’s medical expenses. His MRI is estimated to cost between $3,800 and $4,200. We know that it is a difficult time to be reaching out, however a rescues expenses don’t decrease regardless of world events. We are dedicated to helping Iggy and other pugs like him who have special medical or behavioral issues. Thank you for your consideration and supporting GMPR to do what our mission is-Saving One Pug At A Time!
