To assist to pay for emergency treatment following haemorrhage after routine castration for Mede our Labrador pup.

Taranaki

Mede is an 8 month old purebred choc Labrador retriever. He was adopted by our family after losing our 14 year old lab. Sadly we discovered he had entropian lower eyelids so have been saving to get that done. Yesterday was surgery day and as it would be irresponsible to breed from him I decided to neuter him in the one treatment but Its been a horrific 24 hrs with Mede. His castration surgery has ended up being a nightmare. It went well but in recovery he haemorrhaged badly. They bleeding wasn’t being controlled so they have given him plasma transfusions, vit k and fluids and things were not looking good. When they rang they believed he was not going to make it but would do their best. Several vets have worked through the night and he’s made it through. Is awake and alert but very very sick. He’ll be there for some time yet.

The bill is over $3k so far.

Insurance has declined as castration is deemed elective and therefore any complications are not covered.

He’s home  20 January 2022

On Monday arvo I got to bring Mede home. He’s really good in himself. Alert, happy, eating and drinking well and coping with being crated for most of the day. It’s our 4th night home tonight and I’m letting him move around a bit more but watching he doesn’t get too rough with his doggy sister Meg.

Medes still swollen over his scrotum but it is coming down. Tomorrow we have another check up at vet. Will let you know how we get on.
