A ten-week-old puppy is doing remarkably well, despite being found with a metal rod through his skull. On February 3, University Veterinary Specialists detailed how the injured puppy was found:
The UVS Express Pet Transport was dispatched to Bentleyville, PA to assist with a 10-week-old puppy that presented with blunt force trauma to his head as well as both eyes. The proper authorities have been contacted, and an investigation is underway.
Despite the apparent gravity of the situation, the puppy is doing well after undergoing surgery over the weekend to remove the metal rod. UVS posted a video of the recuperating puppy, and a few words about the successful procedure:
We are so happy to share this update!
A successful surgery was performed last night, and the puppy is doing well. He has vision in one eye, and will need further monitoring to determine if vision in his other eye can be saved. Watch the video and look at him go!
Financial assistance for the case is being provided by The UVS Cares Foundation. Donations can be made to The UVS Cares Foundation by check or credit card by calling: (724) 717-CARE (2273).
