Rocky is 5 years old and a Labrador/Border Collie mix. He joined our family in Dec 2018 when we found him (almost dead) beside the road. He was extremely sick and almost didn't make it. The next day we took Rocky to a veterinarian, he told us that Rocky have the Parvovirus with a couple of other problems. We nursed him back to health for almost a month and fell in love with this little boy.

On Wednesday the 1st of Nov 2023 we played & threw balls for Rocky. All of a sudden Rocky cried out with pain and was suddenly paralysed from the middle of his back down. He can not use his hind (back) legs or control his bladder.

He had to go for a MRI scan which costs $650 / R12 000 to see what has caused this.

He was then diagnosed with FCE, (Fibrocartilaginous Embolism) and admitted into hospital. Just like people, dogs have discs between their vertebrae that act as a cushion and allow for the back to be flexible. These discs are called intervertebral discs. The center of each disc is made of fibrocartilage, which is a dense connective tissue. Sometimes, although rare, a piece of fibrocartilage from within a disc can migrate into the bloodstream and lodge within a spinal artery, preventing blood flow to a section of the spinal cord. This is called a fibrocartilaginous embolism (FCE), also referred to as a spinal stroke.

We don't have a medical aid for Rocky and the bills will be expensive. He needs to get physiotherapy every second day to hopefully recover & have full mobility and stay in hospital until he is able to hopefully walk again. This can be anything between 2 weeks to 18 months for dogs. Rocky is already in hospital for 2 weeks.

We would appreciate any funds that would go towards Rocky's hospital bills. This would mean the world to us!

You can also follow his IG Page that was created when we got Rocky, just to get a better idea of how much he means to us & also who we are as ‘parents’ :
