Macy's Recovery

Hello, my name is Kristin Pistilli. I started this page to help my family members, Ronnie and Brittney offset some of the huge vet bills to save sweet Macy!

On December 21, 2017 Ronnie was out walking, Remington (1year old daughter) Macy(chocolate lab). While on their walk, a pit bull came charging at them. The aggressive pitbull viciously attacked Macy, grabbing her by the neck with it's teeth and not letting go. Ronnie fought to get the pit bull off Macy, the pit bull had a lock on her. The pit bull bit Ronnie's hand twice. A witness stopped his car on the street to help Ronnie get the pit bull off Macy. They were finally able to get the dog off Macy, after several minutes of intense attack.

The Police Department and Animal Control were called out immediately. Macy suffered severe bites and was rushed to the Emergency Vet. They had to put her under anesthesia to have the huge bites sutured up. Macy was sent home on antibiotics and pain medicine. On Tuesday, December 26th , Ronnie had to rush sweet Macy to the emergency vet again, large amounts of fluid started pouring out of a hole Macy's chest. The vet had to put her under again.

Today, December 28th, Ronnie had to take Macy to the vet again as she was not doing well, she is scheduled to have surgery again this afternoon. They will have to cut her open top to bottom and along her neck and spine, wash the areas out and put in drain tubes. We are hoping and praying Macy can pull through all of this! Macy is the sweetest and most loving chocolate lab, she's a huge part of our family!

The pit bull's owners have accepted no responsibility for this attack, the pit bull was just running freely. Animal control placed the dog on a 10 day, in house probation....that's it!!! Oklahoma dog attack laws need to be changed. If the dog had bit Ronnie or Remmington first then animal control could actually do something.

Please help Macy survive this brutal attack. Money raised will go towards:
-Macy's medical bills
-Macy's recovery

Macy is home today. She has a LONG road to recovery, hopefully this last surgery will begin the road to getting our Macy back!

Update from Ronnie last night
-The Dr called and said surgery was successful. The first culture came back negative for resistant bacteria. The area had pretty bad necrosis from the skin being torn away from the muscle/tendons (avulsions) that she cut out. She has a drain tube and will have to be drained every day or two depending on drainage. Waiting on second culture to come back Saturday or Monday.
