Appeal for Carlos
12.05 Update: Carlos is still at the vets and is managing to eat a little more now and keep the food down. If this continues, we’re hoping he’ll be going back to his loving foster home over the weekend.
We are appealing for Carlos, a lovely 8-month-old Dachshund who came into our care last week. Sadly, Carlos became very poorly over the bank holiday weekend and was rushed to Medivet where he’s been put on a drip and is fighting for his life. It seems that poor Carlos has a very low white blood cell count that is considered extremely dangerous for his health and wellbeing.
Carlos had recently been bought online by his owners, with no previous vet information or medical care. As a charity, we are seeing an increase in the dogs coming into us needing more veterinary care.
Carlos is now under 24-hour care at the local vet, where he will begin blood plasma transfusion and be taken for an abdominal scan, to hopefully save his life. Hopefully, Carlos recovers and will be able to live a happy and fulfilled life.
Update – 06/05/21 – Carlos pulled through the night. He had a blood plasma transfusion, he is still in critical care and is on 24/7 watch – they think he could have sepsis. Carlos will most likely be in the vets for another 3 days to a week. We’re keeping our paws crossed for lovely Carlos.
The vet has estimated that Carlo’s veterinary bills will come to around £5,000. As the treatment has now started, this is an urgent appeal to ask for your help!
We need your help to give Carlos his second chance at life.
