Please Help Monty!
We’ve rescued Monty about 6 months. He was found running around the streets, skinny and dirty. He is only 2 yrs. old, but other than neutering and palate he was good. Last week out of the blue he started having difficulty breathing, we rushed him to the Vet and they said he had air in his chest, he had a leak from his lungs. After removing the air from his chest he seemed better, but after re-running x-rays, they found some air bubbles in his lung. We rushed him to a specialist, they did a CT Scan and they found he had Spontaneous Pneumothorax, which is air bubbles/blisters in his lung that can rupture. This is a problem known to Huskies, but some Pugs get it. In all the years we have been dealing with Pugs we’ve never heard or experienced this. From the CT Scan he was rushed to surgery, all of this happened within 24 hrs. We had to do the surgery right away, because if another bubble ruptured we would have lost him.
They had to remove the entire right lung. The surgery was very extensive. His incision goes from the middle of his chest to the middle of his back.
He is recuperating and doing well. But, and there is always a but, the CT scan was $2K and the surgery $5K.
We have 4 weeks to come up with the money!!!! They were kind enough to at least give us some time to raise the funds.
PLEASE if you can help in any way we would appreciate it!
