Fundraising for Winston

£1,800 goal

Campaign created 4 months ago
Winston  is a 6 month old German Shepherd cross German Pointer and is in need of help with funding his surgery. He has been in and out of the vets and has been through so much. A few months ago, Winston had a problem with his undercarriage where it became so swollen and painful that it couldn't be put back in its usual place. We called the vets and they said we needed to bring him in as soon as possible as it could have killed him. He stayed in over night and had emergency surgery where they made an insition to help it go back in. A couple weeks later, the problem returned and this time a couple mornings we noticed blood in Winston's bed. We assumed that he had been licking it and caused the skin to break and not heal, therefore making it bleed. When we noticed, the bleeding had stopped and there were only small signs of discomfort so it wasn't an emergency as he was behaving as normal. On October 14th 2018 during one of his walks, it suddenly started dripping with blood. I rushed him back to the car and quickly put pressure on it. By this point his legs were covered in blood and we were panicking. We rushed him to the vets where they kept him in for two nights. After a long discussion with the vet, we agreed that the best solution for our puppy was to have a minor amputation. Please help us fund his operation and to make his quality of life better again. No animal deserves to be in pain. He is the funniest most energetic and sweetest puppy and its horrible to see what he's been going through. We really need as much help as we can get! Thank you!

Winston came home today. He recovered well and is so happy to be home. He has pain killers and antibiotics but is behaving almost like nothing had happened.

So he had a minor amputation of his penis and was also castrated at the same time. It totaled to 1,800 pounds. Of course castration is a normal procedure but in Winston's case these operations were essential as his journey has been life threatening and without these operations Winston would suffer from continuous pain, Infection and his life was becoming more and more at risk.

If after recovery these operations haven't fixed his problem Winston will have to undergo another operation where they would completely remove his penis, make an insition ane connect a catheter for him to still pass urine.

It's a long journey for him and your funds will be so helpful to us and will help us to make sure Winston is happy and healthy.

Winston had his operation and the vet said he's doing well. He is still quite drowsy from the anaesthetic so he's staying in another night which will be another 50 quid. We are really struggling to pay for his treatments and even though he has had his operation there is no guarantee that it will solve everything. So theres a chance he will continue visiting the vets and more money will be changed until the correct procedure has fixed him.

We went to see Winston this morning. He is doing fine but was sad to see us go. Chatted with the vet on options and it looks like the best thing for him is a minor amputation. We really need help funding for this procedure. Winston deserves to be home with his family, healthy and pain free.
