This beautiful Golden Retriever is a member of an active military family. While the father was stationed abroad, Beau contracted a dangerous condition called Immune-Mediated Thrombocytopenia, which causes the patient to bleed out because his own system is attacking him. The family used all of their savings to save Beau but needed some financial assistance. We were happy to partner with other friends of ours, The Zoe Musso Fund. Thanks to Red BAnk Veterinary Hospital, They were able to save his life and he went home healthy and ready to be with his family. Your support made this possible !
This little Yorkie is all boy and thinks he is a Doberman. Yet he is as loving as you could ever imagine. Unfortunately, he was born with a malformed trachea which inevitably led to a collapsing trachea (already a common issue for this breed). In 2012, he suffered a severe complication from getting overexcited and barking which caused his trachea to swell while simultaneously causing him to aspirate and develop pneumonia in a matter of a couple of hours. On route to the hospital, he died but his owner was able to perform CPR and get him back. He spent a week in ICU in the oxygen to the tune of several thousand dollars, Thanks to the great doctors at Red Bank Veterinary, he made a full and complete recovery.
Then in 2017, the same thing happened again. He died on the table but the doctor was able to resuscitate him and save his life. He spent several days again in ICU and made a full recovery. This time the owners had spent all their savings, exhausted all of their credit on top of one of them recently losing their job and trying not to lose their home. Thanks to supporters like you and Save U.S. Pets, they were able to meet the financial burden and Zac got the life-saving treatment he desperately needed.
This handsome kitty is this little guy's best friend. So when Captain America became ill with a urinary obstruction that required immediate surgery, the family found themselves making some tough decisions. We were able to give a grant that was the stepping stone they needed to keep these two buds together. Thank you for your donations !
