It’s the season of giving. Would you consider helping give Bug the surgery he needs to survive?
Our sweet Bug came to us when he and his sibling were born with a common, congenital issue in French Bulldogs known as a cleft palate. Unfortunately, one of the pups died a few days after being born but Bug is a fighter. Bug is under the care of one of our experienced technicians who was tube feeding him around the clock for 3 weeks, and eventually had to create a special mixture of food and gelatin since too wet of a mixture could cause him to suffocate.
Cleft Palate, in simple terms, is when the hard and soft tissue on the roof of the mouth don’t close properly during development. The opening in the roof of the mouth causes the oral cavity and nasal cavity to use the same route, making it difficult to eat, drink, swallow and breathe. Many dogs don’t survive without special surgery to correct it.
Bug’s surgery will cost approximately $5,000 to complete and it will allow him to have the chance to live a normal and healthy life! Please consider making a donation towards Bug’s surgery – your support will be lifesaving!
