Hi Everyone; our names are Caroline and Trent, and we are fundraising to help with surgical and recovery costs for our husky, Kona.
Caroline rescued Kona from an abusive home about 4 years ago, and we have done everything we can to give him a happy and loving home. We estimate he is between 8-10 years old, and he is the happiest boy!
Our sweet Kona was rushed to the emergency animal hospital yesterday after we noticed he was experiencing stomach pain and abdominal swelling. Our worst fears were confirmed when the doctor told us his stomach had fully distended/twisted, causing him extreme pain, and he needed immediate surgery for GDVM. Thankfully we caught this early enough that surgery was a viable option.
After several hours of intense surgery, he stayed overnight at the trauma center. Kona will need continued medical care and supervision to recover from the surgery. He also has severe arthritis in his spine, so there are concerns with his mobility following the extensive time spent on his back during surgery. He has been transferred to another animal hospital for monitoring and medications. We look forward to returning him to full health and bringing him home soon!
We are asking for help covering his unexpected surgical and continued recovery costs. Being an older dog, we want to do everything we can to ensure that he continues to live a long and happy life. Any assistance covering the costs to provide this for our wonderful Kona is greatly appreciated.
Caroline and Trent
