Help Save Oscar the Gravel Eating Weanie

Update posted by Amanda Plank On Apr 29, 2013

Hello All, I wanted to post another update, Oscar is home and doing well. He has decided that while canned dog food isn't his thing that when mixed with water to make a gravy its not so bad. Pills though.. thats a whole nother story. The 7 pills a day he has to take are becoming more and more of a challenge as he finds creative ways to avoid eating them while eating the yummy food. But Momma is persistent and it seems to be paying off. He is gaining weight again and "business" is returning to normal. Hes got another week and a half before his staples come out and we are contemplating keeping him on the soft food for awhile to try and give his stomach a chance to fully heal.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the surgery possible and inspired the vet to do so despite our lack of funds. We couldn't have done it without your show of support.

Oscar still needs constant supervision but the vet felt he was stable enough to spend the night under the watchful eye of his Momma. He goes back tomorrow for more treatment but at least for tonight We get to have him where he belongs. Thank you so much to everyone for their support and kind words.

Yes, around noon on Wednesday I was forced to increase the amount needed. Oscar is not yet stable and needs additional medications. We are pushing the two grand mark already and that does not include the pain meds etc to take home with him should he get to come home at all. The expense is well beyond our reach at this point and again we are at a loss for what to do.

 

Please keep spreading the word. Please help how you can. Even a Dollar is one step closer.

Keep in mind that Raven's Hollow Jewelry is backing all of your rewards with a dollar for dollar gift certificate to their store.

Thank you again for all your help and well wishes.

We got word from the vet that Oscar is out of surgery and recovering slowly. He is being held for observation for the next few hours at least.

While the stress of getting the operation taken care of is out of the way and I am pacing the floors a little less the financial burden still is a daunting task. You guys have been great so far. Just because the surgery is complete does not mean it's time to stop spreading the word. Dig deep. Think of unique places to share Oscar's crazy story. 

Know a small business owner? Remind them that charitable donations are Tax deductable and programs like Go Get Funding do count. Know someone who works at a local TV or Radio Station?See if they can help spread the word.

Facebook, twitter, pintrest, any and all social media is fair game.

For those of you who kept their identities secret, Thank you for your suppport. We wish there was someway to let you know how much your support means to us. For those of you who provided your information you will receive a personal thank you letter via email over the next few days. Those of you who selected reward levels your gift certificates are being generated by Raven's Hollow's system now and will be sent out in the next day or so.

After a sleepless night of keeping watch over Oscar he was returned to the vet this morning at 8am to be prepared for surgery. The vet was so impressed by the responses of our supporters so far they pushed up his surgery despite the lack up funds.

You guys are miracle workers.

I wait anxiously for the call from the vet that he has come out of surgery safely. I will keep you all posted. 

Please keep helping by spreading the word. Just because the surgery is happening doesn't mean we are out of the woods yet. Thank you so much to those of you who have helpped thus far, be it financially or by helping get the word out.

This dog is loved by so many. :)

First and formost thank you all for your support. It means so much to Robert and I that there are people out there willing to help give oscar another chance at a good spoiled life. 

 

Just got off the phone with the vet. They've put him on some IV Fluids and some pain meds. We are awaiting bloodwork results for the toxin screen and pre-op blood work so that he is ready to go if we get to move forward with this.

 

I will make sure that all rewards go out as soon as I get the information from GoGetFunding. I will be sure to continue to post updates as we get them from the vet. Again thank you for your show of support.

We love wiener dogs!! But, boy do they eat some dumb things!! I once had one eat several pounds of English Ivy, which is toxic, of course!! She pulled through, and we wish the same for Mr. Oscar!!
