Donations Needed for Imaging

Donations Needed for Imaging   Holly Sideways Sit   ** Donations Needed **  As most of you know, we accepted four puppies into our program back in February.  Holly is part of that litter.  She  is a sweet, young, puppy, just under 5 months of age.  Since coming into our program, Holly has been treated for a severe skin infection, (probable) sarcoptic mange, and vomiting.  She is currently being treated for a recurrent urinary tract infection. Holly often seems unstable on her feet, so much so that we were concerned about a patella or hip issue.  Sometimes she has difficulty coming up a stair or two and at other times she has difficulty moving through the dog door.  Much to our surprise, her veterinary exam noted no orthopedic issues.  The vet did notice that she drags her back toes when she walks and stated her movement issues were neuromuscular in nature. We are raising money to MRI Holly and her littermates to ascertain the cause and determine a therapeutic approach, if there is one, for any neurologic challenges.  In discussing this with the neurologist, they recommended we start with the pup most effected in movement  (Holly) and the one with the most pronounced air scratching (Millie or Tilly). We want to be able to understand as much as possible about the pup's health so prospective families will know what to expect in the years ahead. Neurological workups in the greater Boston area average $2800-3200 for an individual dog.  The estimate we received includes both the MRI and a CSF evaluation, as recommended by the neurologist. If you are able to contribute to our MRI fund, to help any one of these puppies, it would be greatly appreciated.  No amount is too small and you can follow the link at:  CavalierAlliance.org/donate  or send a check to our mailing address:  P.O. Box 17, Bedford, MA  01730

Poppy Needs Your Help

Poppy 8 weeks Poppy is a darling, 8 week old, under 3 lb, puppy with a heart defect known as PDA, that can be fixed with surgery. Without surgery, her life expectancy will be very short, but assuming she makes it through surgery, she has an excellent prognosis for a normal life. She is scheduled for surgery at Cornell University in the coming weeks and we are asking for your help so that we can fund this life-saving surgery for her! No gift is too small and we will all be appreciative for whatever assistance you can provide.
Poppy was born with a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). Normally the ductus arteriosus, an important blood vessel, shunts blood from the heart and bypasses the lungs when puppies are in the uterus before birth - they don’t need to breath, so there’s no need for blood to go to the lungs. At birth, this blood vessel normally closes, so that oxygenated blood reaches the lungs and then is circulated to the rest of the body, providing oxygen rich blood to important tissues. If the ductus doesn’t close properly, the heart has to work extra hard to pump oxygenated blood to these important tissues. Eventually, the heart muscle becomes thickened from working so hard and, in time, the heart muscle weakens and heart failure and death results. Poppy already, at only 8 weeks of age, has evidence that her heart muscle is thickened. With prompt surgery, her heart can repair itself before the damage is permanent, but there isn’t much time. If you would like to donate to Poppy's surgery and care, please visit our donate page http://www.cavalieralliance.org/donate/ or send via PayPal (friends and family option) to CavalierHelp@CavalierAlliance.org . . .
