Blu is still critical because they can't keep his blood levels up. Even with transfusions of PRBC so they were doing a whole blood transfusion today hoping that helps. They aren't ready to give up on him but his bills will sky rocket. He's worth it if he can just keep fighting. Please make a donation to Dolly's Legacy for Blu.
We won’t give up, but we can’t do it without your help ❤️🐾
Our sweet boy made it through the night! The transfusion gave his poor heart some relief- now he is being wheeled into surgery to physically remove the worms that have invaded his heart... it is a very risky surgery, but is his only chance at survival.
Please keep all of the prayers and well-wishes coming!!! And donations are critical- his bills from this surgery and the other life-saving measures are going to run $5000+, and he will still need to go through heartworm treatment after this. We believe his life is 100% worth saving! His whole life, people have let him down horribly- and now he has a whole army of amazing humans cheering him on, showing him love and championing his cause!
Blu is being treated at Veterinary Specialty Services, a specialized emergency vet center outside of St. Louis- the estimate for his care is $5000.
They are going to transfuse him tonight, and hit him hard with a vasodilator to see if they can get the heartworm mass to move back- if that does not work, the cardiologist will attempt a surgical procedure to retrieve some of the worms. This is all very scary to us (and you can see how scared Blu is 😭). We know he is in the very best hands, and you can see his will to live! KEEP THOSE PRAYERS AND WELL-WISHES COMING! 🙏🏻❤️
A Huge THANK YOU to all who have donated and are saying prayers...
Blu made it to the vet, and is waiting to be taken in... poor baby looks so scared.
We will continue to update as we find things out- Stay strong sweet boy 💙
Blu is still making his way to the emergency vet- it is a long journey to get him to a cardiac specialist who will hopefully be able to save him (a very special thanks to his angel caring for him and making the trip to get him there). We will update with any information as soon as he sees the vet...
PLEASE, PLEASE- any help you could give brings hope 🌤
Share like crazy and donate if you can-
LET’S SHOW THIS BOY THAT NOT ALL HUMANS SUCK!
⚠️‼️GUYS! WE HAVE AN EMERGENCY AND NEED TO GO BIG! WE NEED YOUR HELP TO SAVE THIS BOY’S LIFE‼️⚠️
We have a sweet, innocent soul fighting for his life this morning... this is him being rushed to the vet with a very grim diagnosis. Beautiful Blu is only 3 years old and is full of heartworm- he has developed a condition called Caval Syndrome, which happens when a mass of heartworm collects in the heart, impeding normal blood flow- which will cause his little heart to collapse. 💔💔💔
💴 His treatment estimate was between $5000-$7000- we are PLEADING for your help in saving him! Please donate and share like crazy! His life matters! 😭😭😭
🙏🏻 BE STRONG BLU! WE LOVE YOU! 🙏🏻
