The BC SPCA’s Quesnel & District Branch is seeking your help with medical costs for Roxi, who is recovering from sudden liver failure.
Roxi was surrendered to the SPCA and went in for a routine surgical procedure but had what is believed to be a severe post-op reaction to the anesthetic. After her surgery Roxi displayed a few alarming symptoms including jaundice, lack of appetite, dehydration and out of character behavior. “In a matter for 48 hours Roxi went from her perfect, sweet, tennis ball crazy self, to fighting for her life,” says SPCA Quesnel & District branch manager Colby O’Flynn.
Roxi’s blood work showed that she was fighting sudden liver failure and immediate medical intervention was needed to keep her alive. She was rushed out of town for specialized testing and round-the-clock emergency medical care to save her life. After spending four days in intensive care, Roxi was strong enough to come back to the Quesnel SPCA. “Her condition is improving every day and tests indicate that with continued support, her liver should make a full recovery and Roxi can get back to chasing her favorite ball,” says Flynn.
Roxi’s medical costs are estimated to be about $3,050. If you can help her and other animals in need at the Quesnel & District SPCA, please visit spca.bc.ca/medicalemergency or visit the branch at 1000 Carson Pit Road, Vancouver, 1-250-992-7722.
