Zene’s Veterinary Costs

A member of our Vizsla family needs our help. Karen Lake's Zene was first brought to the vet on Saturday, November 18th, because she developed a fever of 105 degrees. She received antibiotics and sub-q fluids but continued to sustain a high fever and was brought to an emergency vet hospital on Sunday where she received IV antibiotics, fever reducer and a fentanyl pain patch. Her fever finally broke, and she came home to rest.

Then Monday morning, she was rushed back to the ER vet where she was diagnosed with “Acute Septic Mastitis” also known as Gangrenous mastitis.  Her first of several surgeries was performed on Monday afternoon. She spent several days in the ICU receiving 24 hour wound care and IV therapy for the drains placed in and around the necrotic tissue. Her next scheduled surgery will be near Thanksgiving weekend.

Karen has donated so much of her own time and money to help our Vizsla Breed in many ways, including as Rescue Coordinator, please consider donating even a small amount. If each of us donate a little, it can help a lot!
