Gucci's Medical Care

SC

$10.00 raised of $1,000.00

Gucci came to us as a owner surrender! The information we recieved was that Gucci was aggressive, and they could no longer care for him. Once in a foster home we quickly realized that this dog has NO aggression issues with humans or other dogs; but that something was very wrong. Gucci will not eat or drink on his own, we took him to the vet where confirmed what we already new that he was underweight. The question is why? Gucci has had xrays, and bloodwork; while we wait for the test results he has to be syringe fed prescription dog food three times a day, syringe fed water multiple times a day, and is on two medications that have to be syringe fed twice a day. The vet visits, testing, medication, and prescription food we are already close to $1000.00 in vet bills. Once all of the test results are back a course of action for treatment can be decided, and the bills will only increase from there. Please help us get Gucci the help he needs so he can have a chance to find a family that truly cares for him.

Updates

  • Gucci continued to lose weight and needed extensive testing. The testing cost $1100.00. The tests showed that Guccis body is essentially starving itself. His body does not retain any calories or fat that he takes in. Gucci needs to take two medications twice a day to help his body hold onto what he takes in. He will need to be on this medication for the rest of his life. Not only was this costly for a rescue, the cost for medication will be ongoing. Please help us maintain the care that Gucci needs!

  • Gucci is in a wonderful foster home but is having trouble gaining weight. He is a work in process and still has to improve. Gucci has to be hand fed by his foster sometimes and will need to overcome his trust issues.
