Case #2 – Ryker

Sweet Ryker


Our other serious case: This little sweetheart, named Ryker – which means Strength, was also brought in by a good Samaritan. He was attacked by two German Shepherds. He underwent two hours of surgery with Dr. Rivera due to severe wounds to his body; his intestines and bladder were actually on the outside of his abdominal wall and needed emergency surgery that night. Gina has volunteered her time to assist Dr. Pillsbury of Harper Woods Veterinary/Animal Urgent and Critical Care Center with his surgery for a broken femur which is broken in half — possibly Tuesday, May 13. It is a clean break so we are all praying that a pin can be inserted versus amputation. We will keep everyone updated. ~ diana

Case #1- Helping Thunder!

We’ve taken on two very serious cases this past week-end and both little ones need your prayers and support. Although individual donations have been very slow, we continue to be thankful for all of our wonderful supporters who attend our fundraisers. Here is one of the babies brought into Cats Veterinary, Clinton Twp. and thanks to our partnership and medical funds provided by 4P1H, Thunder will have any treatment necessary, including a visit to a specialist if needed. Stay tuned. ~ diana

“Here is “Thunder” (named for the gloomy day and thunderstorm we are having). He has been surrendered to us by a good Samaritan. His right eye is incredibly inflamed. It is difficult to tell what the eye globe itself looks like underneath all the conjunctiva swelling. We will try medical management here- but he could possibly need an eye enucleation surgery. He also came in infested with fleas. He has been tested negative for FeLV and FIV. We will keep you up to date on the eye and what the doctors feel will be needed- for now we are trying antibiotics both orally and ophthalmic. Very sweet little boy, but nervous and probably feeling uncomfortable ( we are also giving him pain medications!)” Jessica, Cats Veterinary
