Meet 11 month old Astro. He is as sweet as he looks, loving, cuddly and very spunky. Unfortunately, it was thought that Astro may have been born with a birth defect that causes him to leak urine. Because of financial reasons, the family who loved him surrendered Astro to get the help he needs thanks to your continued donations!
After months of being in and out of doctors with over $2,000 in expenses nothing has worked for Astro. He saw an internal medicine specialist at Med Vet in Columbus 5/21. The doctor feels there is inflammation, infection in the boy's prostate and that is causing his issue. Nothing showed up on ultrasound, but when he was palpating Astro's prostate he yelped in pain. The doctor put him on a different antibiotic from the other medicine he had been on and in 3 weeks we will see if the incontinence issue is solved. If not then the next step will be having him scoped to see what might be going on with the ADDITIONAL cost of $2200-2400. We are so hoping the antibiotic will do the job, but so far nothing has gone right for this poor guy. We won't be surprised if we end up needing to scope him. Paws crossed though that doesn't happen, but we are going to ask you to help us as so far antibiotics have not worked.
We can only help dogs like Astro by your kind donations
towards his care. As you can see, we are still desperately trying to raise money to pay for his medical bills and now an additional $2,400 for the scope procedure.
If you can help, we'll list your name as a sponsor right on here on his page on our website. We just thank you so much for your continued support! You can donate any amount (it all helps) here.
If you would like to be considered a candidate to adopt Astro, please read our adoption policies
and follow the directions from there. Because we do not know his complete background, no children under 10 years old with this adoption.
