Boris Had Emergency Surgery, and Needs Your Help!
We have a sad and urgent request for help! This beautiful boy named Boris was adopted earlier this week, after Milo had rescued him from Merced. A sweeter Border Collie mix you’ve never met!
Yesterday he was having serious difficulty breathing, and so his adopters rushed him to PETS Emergency Vet in Berkeley. X-rays showed that he needed surgery immediately. Poor Boris had a 3-inch slit in his diaphragm, and 75% of his intestines had spilled into his chest cavity.
The good news is that the surgery went very well, Boris is in recovery, and he has a great prognosis for a happy, healthy and long life with his loving family!
The cost for this significant surgery was $9,000. Boris’ adopters love him very much and are supporting him, and also have created a fundraiser to assist with these significant costs. We ask that you please HELP PAY FOR BORIS RUDOLPH’S EMERGENCY SURGERY. Any amount helps!
This was a totally unexpected event, an existing condition which would not be discovered in a typical vet exam, and Boris is fortunate to have landed with such a loving and caring family.
Milo is also supporting this medical need, and we thank you who have already pitched in via our Facebook post as well.
