Salter was found in the early hours of the morning, all alone by the side of the road. The temperature was in the low 20s, when a good samaritan stopped and discovered him there. He believed the little pug had been hit by a car, as he was very injured, and bleeding from the nose. The pug was also extremely cold to the touch, likely meaning he had been out there for some time. Suffering from hypothermia, the little pug shook as the finder took him to the nearest ER Vet, Prescott Area Pet Emergency Hospital, where a microchip scan was negative. He was immediately put on oxygen, as work began to bring his core body temperature up.
Within a few hours, APARN learned about him, and stepped in to assume financial responsibility to help this little pug! The vet is running blood work and will be adding some additional tests such as x-rays and ultrasound, to verify the extent of his internal damages.
Salter is currently in critical condition, and APARN needs your help to save him. The low estimate is $2287, and the high end $2901. Please donate what you can to help APARN save Salter and other pugs like him in their mission to leave no pug behind!
Updates to follow as we learn more information from the tests the vet completes.
