The Story

This is Scout.   This is how chronic pain and recurrent infection looks.   Scout has not had a happy few weeks.   Scout has had chronic ear problems since he came to us.   He has had multiple trips to the Vet, cultures, steroids, different anti-biotics yet nothing seemed to help.   For the past month, Scout has had severe pain, constantly crying and rubbing his ears and has been receiving ongoing pain medication until we could get him in to a specialist at the Vet school.   A CT Scan revealed that poor Scout has a large mass growing deep inside his ear that is causing him lots of pain and making him functionally deaf in that ear.   The only way to help Scout is for him to have an expensive surgery called a Total Ear Canal Ablation and Bullous Osteotomy.  That is a mouthful to say but the short explanation is that they must remove the tumor and all involved structures of Scouts ear and make a “window” in the nearby bone to prevent recurrence.   The good news is that we can fix Scout and make him pain free.  The bad news is that this surgery will cost between $2600 and $2900 which is a huge amount of money for a rescue.   We have already spent $2000 on Scout with another $3000 likely.   Will you please help us help Scout get out of pain and have a chance to live the remainder of his life as a healthy, happy dog?   If so, Scout and UYR would be enormously grateful.   We are also very grateful for sharing his story and THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Hi everyone it's me Scout!   I have recovered nicely from my surgery and got out of my cone Yippee!   I do have more news to report too.    The tumor they took out of my ear came back as cancer.  That made me and foster Mom and Dad pretty sad because we assumed the worst.   My surgeon wanted me to see a cancer Dogtor so off we went back to the specialist.   There were a lot of really big words tossed around, but the bottom line is that the surgery got virtually all of the cancer.   There may have been some cells left behind that could turn into something but since I'm 10 years old and this type of cancer is very slow growing and spreading the oncologist thinks there will be no significant impact on my longevity, health, or happiness and that I should live a normal life span as a healthy dog!   I feel so much better now thanks to you and your donation.   My ears don't hurt anymore and I am out of my cone and ready for my forever home!   UYR spent $5000 getting me healthy and with your help we have raised over $1000 to help with my medical bills so Thank You!   Please share my story with any of your Yorkie loving pals so maybe a few more dollars might trickle in.   Your donation towards my care is so VERY APPRECIATED!

Poor Scout can't catch a break. His pathology report came back as cancer so he will now need to see the Veterinary Oncologist. His medical costs continue to mount. Please help Scout by donating towards his care and Thank You.
