Jack's Emergency Surgery Fund

$629 of $2,000 goal

Our sweet Jack is a 10 year old pug/Jack Russell mix with an unwavering love of bones and signature pug head-turns

Frankly, he's the source of a lot of joy for a family, that like many others, have fallen on some hard times. He's a fighter that's been through quite a bit, as he's blind and diabetic, and just got over HGE (hemorrhagic gastroenteritis) about three months ago, but yet he's still so full of life and love. He truly is man’s best friend.

He now has, and clearly has for some time and gone undetected, bladder stones that are blocking his urethra. We took him to the emergency vet today. After an x-ray was performed, they confirmed this was the problem, and they had to catheterize him as his bladder was filled. After draining his bladder, he lost 3 pounds… So needless to say, this is a serious situation, and one that needs to be addressed immediately as the bladder will fill again and he cannot urinate on his own. Without said surgery, his bladder could rupture at any time, and that's something that cannot be risked. 

We're following through with the emergency surgery, as it's something that is treatable and for that reason, we aren't willing or ready to give up on him, nor is Jack ready to give up. The money situation is secondary to our love, but it would be a lie to say that we aren't in need of some financial help here. The last thing we want is for anyone to feel pressured into donating, but if you're in a place where you can, it would be extremely appreciated. The cost is already estimated above the goal, and anything to chip away at the bill would be huge for us. Thank you.

Jack is home, with one less spleen and more than a handful of bladder stones than he went in with. He's on some strong pain meds that should be making him lethargic and loopy, but we're already having issues keeping him from jumping on and off the bed -- the kind of problems we're grateful to be dealing with in comparison to what could have been. He's still got some recovery ahead of him, but this tough little guy is a fighter.

The expenses raised quite a bit more after today's fiasco, but again, that's secondary to our love for Jack. Any continued support and donations would be greatly appreciated, and we're touched by the support we've received thus far.

Just received a call from the vet while Jack was under for his stone removal. Jack also has a tumor on his spleen that requires his spleen to be removed. So along with the stone removal, he is also currently having his spleen removed. Please keep Jack in your thoughts, and thank you for all of the help so far.
