Breed: French Bulldog
Location: Anna, TX
A trusted friend of Neil and Jayme Harvey found out about this pup who was purchased from a “breeder” and saw the puppy last month and she was normal, a couple of days ago the buyer of the puppy went to pick her up from the “breeder” and this is what she looked like. The breeder said the pup must have got her foot caught in the cage but then took the pup to his vet and the vet said it was a sprain took x-rays and said there is something wrong with her vertebrae and that they should euthanize the puppy.
The buyer is also a follower of the page and knew that she couldn’t take on an expensive medical case like this one not knowing what is true and what isn’t true. She is friends with the Harvey’s and together they reached out to ask if we could help this baby girl.
We sent the x-rays to Dr. Reno and she has had tests as well as an MRI.
First of all the MRI does show that she does have Spina Bifida…. but it is mild and it is NOT the cause of any of her symptoms and problems.
We were pretty shocked to learn that the MRI showed us is that what she has is an infection in her spinal cord very low in her lumbrosacral area. Dr. Ducote said this is extremely unusual to see this in a young dog, and usually when it is seen the dog is 3 to 4 years of age. Stayed tuned for more information as we continue caring for this beautiful girl.
She is already showing much improvement at foster mom Cassandra’s home. She is a happy, sweet girl.
We want to thank Dina, Neil and Jayme for helping this pup get the care she needs and being proactive to make it happen quickly.
Welcome to dog Ranch Rescue, Jayme.
