Frankie was rescued by Pug rescue after being found by the AACL, he was clearly an abused little dog. After fostering this precious boy for a few weeks, we decided to adopt him. We have had Frankie for 6 yrs now, & think he is around 8yrs old. He is the sweetest, most loyal, loving & protective dog
A few months ago, it seems Frankie slipped a disc in his spine. After having x rays done, we took him to a specialist vet in Kenilworth, where he received acupuncture, laser therapy, & some holistic medication. After just a few sessions, he made a full & wonderful recovery. About 5 days ago, he suddenly showed discomfort & that night he drastically deteriorated, He was dragging his bum & back legs. We got a short-notice appointment with the specialist vet, who sent us straight to Panorama vet where he was sent for a CT scan. The scan showed that Frankie had a compressed disc in his spine, causing severe pressure to his spinal cord. He was taken straight into surgery, where they managed to relieve the pressure off the nerves. However, the damage had already been done & there is swelling & bruising of the spinal cord. Frankie will have a long road of rehab ahead of him if he is to ever make a full recovery. This will include regular acupuncture, laser therapy, hydrotherapy and plenty of medication.
Unfortunately, Frankie does not have pet medical aid and the vet bill for Frankie's CT scan and surgery is sitting at just shy of R30 000
Any donations will go straight to paying his vet bill & if we manage to reach our goal and go beyond... Any funds will go towards his rehabilitation
Vet bill for Panorama vet is currently at R28 000, and is still open, as Frankie is still there.
All funds will go towards his vet bill and rehabilitation
Funds raised will be paid into my bank account.
