Your support saves lives.
You enable us to give all the extra veterinary care that is needed to dogs who need medical treatments or who have medical emergencies. Donations are tax-deductible. We have several medical cases. Please scroll down to see them all. Thank you!
With us, they’ll have Sanctuary care for all their days.
Eddie has Wobblers Syndrome and will be a Sanctuary Dane with Great Dane Friends of Ruff Love . “Sanctuary Dane” is a term for ‘forever’ foster dogs. This means that we know their conditions will likely prevent adoption, and we will continue to care for them for their whole lives. GDFRL will take on all of Eddie’s medical expenses.
Eddie is 2 yrs old. In his first week with our rescue, we spent $2500 on his diagnosis and medical care, and we appreciate the love and support from our community with donations during his first weeks with us. He was on anti-inflammatories for the first 3 months and now is doing well on maintenance care. We are going to explore possibly getting him Gold Bead implants when he’s older, per his vet’s recommendation.
The monthly maintenance routines to keep Eddie moving around the best he can includes both cold laser therapy and acupuncture treatments at $55 each, Assisi Loop, NSAID prescriptions, joint supplements including 4000mg per day of fish oil, as well as other supplements. He is doing very well with treatments and has improved mobility! Eddie can even do short hikes now!
This boy is such a sweet, loving soul who just exemplifyies everything we love about Great Dane personalities. Loving, goofy, playful, cuddly…to us, he is perfect.
Thank you to everyone that has already donated to Eddie’s care and to anyone that has shared his story. Social media works!
Monthly Cost: $500/mo
