Mr Teller is on the road to his first paw steps to the first recovery!

His neck has been cleaned up, and necrotic skin cleared out. His drain was removed today and a few little places were stitched up where the skin had to be cleared.

In 3 more days he will have another re-check for suture removal, and he will continue on his antibiotics. Hopefully if he continues to do well on this recovery so we can start his Heartworm treatment process. His total recovery is lengthy, but this boy is totally worth it. He is so grateful for everyone who has come into his life giving pets and kisses.

He is now cleared to be in a medical foster home to continue recovery. Small paw steps in the right direction! We are approx 53% to his Fundraising goal. Can you help us get him that much closer to reaching his goal today?

Donations can be made to our Go Get Funding Here:

Or directly to his attending Veterinarian: Animal Hospital of Regency Park 7741 Congress Street New Port Richey, FL 34653 (727)848-6247

Without you, we wouldn't be able to help them!

Teller's neck wounds have been cleaned and opened to drain. A drain placed in, and sadly we've already found that some of the skin is already necrotic and dying. So after a few days of treatment and stabilizing care, another surgery will need to be performed to remove all the dead tissue.

Most of the pressure has been relieved and he is having a much easier time breathing. There is still some swelling and draining happening which is to be expected with how severe the abscesses were. All of this was sadly caused simply by neglect. If Teller had seen a Veterinarian immediately after whatever bit him happened, all of this would have been completely avoided with simple antibiotics and after treatment care. Now unfortunately it has become life threatening, and very painful to treat and save Tellers life.

While sedated we also took X-Rays of his neck and upper body to make sure there were no foreign bodies and/or internal damage done we could not see. Attached below is the second estimate for days 2 and on. His first day yesterday was a total of $337 and the weekend is $761. The total for his wound care is approx $1200, and this is not including re-checks or continued care up to or past Heartworm Treatment.

He is now on a strong set of antibiotics and being hospitalized for round the clock care, but should be able to go into medical foster as soon as Monday depending on second surgery progress with paws crossed!

Mr Teller didn't have much time left before the abscesses turned into something much worse, and he couldn't be turned around so with this support team he was saved just in time.

It's going to be a long recovery, and may need to have several draining done, but he will beat this and become a happy healthy boy shortly, with everyone's help!

As soon as we have beat this severe infection and draining, he will start Heartworm treatment once he's been medically cleared.
