I found the dog early this morning about 5:30 – 6:00am. There was a car driving at the intersection of St.Remi and St. Jacques and it hit the dog and injured only its hind leg. It’s not badly injured but its hind leg is broken. It’s under 2 years old.
Please call me asap if this is your dog, you can reach me at 514 791 3339.
* has been taken to a vet, more info to follow when available!
UPDATE : This is the message from Jonas, who has not left this little one since he found her!
I brought her to the vet and her hind right leg is broken right above the knee. I got some pain medication for her but she didn’t seem to show any signs of pain before although she could of been in pain either way. She has the medication now so she’s gonna be more comfortable.
After speaking with the vet she said that surgery to fix the leg could be about 2500$ to 3000$ or an amputation. Surgeries aren’t guaranteed and could possibly lead to an amputation which would be 300$.
I’m currently working on fundraising for the dog to get the best help possible. I’ll be going back to the vet monday to see what our options are with the money raised. Realistically because of the break surgery will be a process left to chance potentially, but I’ll try and get different referrals from other veterinarians before making a decision. I have a friend who is helping out and might take care of the dog through the recovery process of either the surgery or amputation.
I have started a chip in so as to collect the funds needed, as the decisions made will depend on the funds available. In the event that the owner is found we’ll revisit the situation, but we can’t wait. Since we don’t have a total, any funds over and above will go to another animal in need! Thanks!!
FINAL UPDATE : Meeki as she is now named, did finally get her operation that saved her leg, and the people who found her have decided to keep her. Huge thanks to all who donated to her operation. Wishing Meeki a long and happy life!
