Our Sick and Injured Dogs

Hank – Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Five-year-old Hank was rescued from a local Georgia animal shelter, obviously underweight. On June 6th, he took a turn for the worse and was rushed to the ER vet – Hank was lethargic, dehydrated, and had very low blood pressure and blood sugar. He also had fluid in his abdominal and chest cavities. An endoscopic biopsy was performed to diagnose Hank’s condition and determine an appropriate course of treatment. He is back in his foster home and on medication that is making him feel better while we await the results of the test. We don’t know what Hank’s total vet bill will be, but so far have incurred $4,000 in emergency vet bills.
Please join us in cheering Hank on to good health and, if you can afford to do so, chip in a little to help New Rattitude with his medical costs. Thank you!
Update 6/15/2021: Hank has been diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease, a treatable condition!
