When 1 year old Caden was rescued he only weighed 43 lbs. He had staples in his hip and was limping badly on his left back leg. A couple of days after he got to his foster home, Caden became very lethargic, would not eat or drink. He was taken to the emergency vet with a temperature of 106! It was discovered that he had an infection in his femur and surrounding areas of the bone caused by hardware installed from a previous surgery prior to rescue. He was taken into Emergency surgery to remove all of the the hardware and clean out the infected areas around the bone. He was hospitalized on fluids for 4 days. Prognosis is good for him while he recovers over the next month. As you can imagine, his hospitalization was not cheap, and Caden's hospitalization has been a drain on our funds. Austin German Shepherd Rescue 501 (3)(c) is an all-volunteer rescue; we do not have a free standing clinic..all dogs are fostered in private homes. We are able to save these beautiful dogs because of the generosity of donations. No amount is too small. Donate through You Caring.com. Thank you!
