Posted on July 14, 20177/13/17 Today was a very lucky day for Buttercup! After having her eye removed yesterday, all IV meds were weaned today and she was released around 3pm today! So far, she is very spoiled! New bed, toys, delicious soft diet for her sore tongue (that she pierced with her own teeth in the accident) and lots and lots of cuddles and kisses. Saturday she will have a drain removed from her head and be seen by our favorite Orthopedist Dr Howe-Smith to make a plan for her full recovery. More than likely, she will need to be fitted for a neck brace and do a round of Physical Therapy. Please continue to share her story and encourage others to do so. While Buttercup is home, the bills continue to mount with her ongoing care.

Posted on July 9, 20177/8/17 evening- Buttercup is lifting her head, eating chicken baby food and rolling over for belly rubs! We got to see her, hold her and feed her! We are so happy! All the techs, nurses and vets are just in love with Buttercup! We are so excited to see all the amazing progress she has made in just 24 hours! We were able to make a payment towards her care tonight, but we have a long way to go! Please keep sharing her story!

Posted on July 8, 20177/8/17 We took Buttercup's X-Rays to Orthopedist Dr. Russel Howe-Smith this morning, he is confident that the gap/injury to her upper spine is all soft tissue and will heal perfectly fine with time. He is recommending she be fitted with a neck brace ASAP to prevent any further or secondary injury to the fragile spinal cord. So, if she can get out of the woods, she will live a healthy long life! We knew she was worth fighting for! Thank you all for your support!
