Two weeks ago I wrote about Alexandra Stewart, who has been fostering Enzo for 8 weeks now. Enzo has packed on some pounds and is getting better socialized every day. Truth be told, he's turned out to be a very sweet older guy. On Saturday Enzo was finally able to get in to see a veterinarian (and few treat-filled bus rides!), something that was badly needed. After the initial consultation it turns out that Enzo is going to need some further tests and care. These tests come to just under $1000, and are detailed :
-Bloodwork, fecal work (tests for parasites, giardia)
-Cytology (he's got a couple lumps)
-Senior welfare panel
-X rays (he could possible have knee dysplasia, hence the limping and inability to tackle large fights of stairs)
-Ear cleansing & medicated bath
People who have been following this story have expressed a desire to donate to help Enzo. If you wish to do so I will direct you to directly contact Enzo's veterinarian. This way you as a donor can know that your funds are going directly to get Enzo the work he needs, with no middle man. It would be appreciated that if you do wish to donate to the veterinarian, please do so with a minimum donation of $25.00, as this will definitely save the vet staff time in processing the donations. Simply inform the clinic you are donating for Enzo. If you would like to donate a smaller amount, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and as the smaller amounts grow, I'll forward them to the veterinarian as a larger sum. Remember, regardless if the donations amount to the $1000 needed, Enzo will get the above treatment, as any outstanding amount due will be donated by The Toronto Pet Daily.
This serves as a great reminder to potential adopters and fosters to DO YOUR HOMEWORK. You would not be so happy if you opened your heart to help a furry friend only to then find out they need a thousand dollars in veterinary care, would you? Nothing makes me happier than knowing this sweet boy will be further on the road to recovery very soon, increasing his odds of being placed in a permanent home filled with love. I'll update again within a week, and thank you all so very much for considering donating to improve Enzo's life.
