The Story

Binkley “Buttons” is an adorable, approximately 3 year old yorkie, who was brought into Animal Control in need of emergency care. Upon admission to the veterinarian clinic, x-rays revealed his mangled leg had been badly fractured and several puncture wounds suggest he had been hit by a car or possibly attacked by a larger animal. He remained hospitalized where he was stabilized with antibiotics and pain medication. UYR was asked to step in to help and ensure this little guy received the best care possible. Despite his wounds he is resilient, happy & gives kisses every chance he gets !

Today Buttons was seen by an orthopedic specialist and despite the seriousness of his injuries the surgeon is confident with surgery to he can make a full recovery.  However, that surgery needs to be done ASAP at an estimate cost of $5,000.  

So we are stepping out in faith for Brinkley Buttons and asking for your help to cover Binkley's leg saving surgery! Thank you and please share Binkley’s story!

March 21, 2018: Today was Binkley Buttons one week follow up appointment at Blue Pearl Vet Specialist in Nashville and things are going wonderfully well – Bandages were removed and x-rays reviewed with surgeon, Dr. Au.  He shared that they actually used bone from a donor for our little guy, due to the infection and bone deterioration that had already set in.  The red circle in the x-ray picture shows where the donors bone fragments were used.  The x-ray also shows the extent of the external fixator that was put in place. Amazing !

So as per Doctors order, 8 weeks of crate rest, continued medications 3 times daily, daily cleaning to ensure no external infection and lots of love.  Scheduled follow up appt in 2 weeks.

Again, none of this would be possible without the support of all of you! Please keep little Binkley Buttons in your thoughts while he continues to heal. We will keep you updated on his progress.

Binkley had his surgery and is doing great!  He’s home from the hospital with his foster Mom getting lots of TLC.  His break was as bad so he has a metal frame holding all the hardware in place until it heals.  He is on pain meds, antibiotics and will go back every 2 weeks for dressing changes and have X-rays again in 8 weeks.  Binkley is SO GRATEFUL for your help and support of him!

Binkley Buttons has had his surgery and is recuperating well at the hospital.  His surgeon says he is eating like a champ and he will have a leg immobilizer placed today and hopefully be discharged tomorrow if all continues to go well.  We are so grateful we were able to get his surgery done quickly as the bone had begun to deteriorate but we have been given every reason to believe this is going to restore Binkley to his rightful status as a happy, healthy, four legged dog.  We are so very grateful for your support and help to give this sweet boy this chance.  Thank You!
