This is Panzer, a 1-year-old German Shorthair/Husky mix. Panzer’s family has fallen on some really hard times recently. His mom is self-employed, and his dad just recently found employment. Unfortunately, his mom became very ill and had to be life-flighted to a different state for heart surgery; and the family doesn't have health insurance. While the family was away for this emergency, a friend was watching their pets. When Panzer's family returned home, they learned Panzer had escaped the yard and somehow cut his leg open.
His family, with all of their own medical issues, were worried and unsure of what to do for Panzer. That’s when their veterinarian encouraged them to apply for help with Fur Kids Foundation for Panzer’s emergency veterinary care. We were happy to help.
Luckily after a full examination, Panzer only needed stitches for his cut. He'll be back to his active self in no time.
When it comes to cuts on animals, Fur Kids Foundation encourages people to be safe, rather than sorry: all wounds should be evaluated by a veterinarian. Wounds can seem like they are very minor; however, sometimes there is bacteria lurking below, which can cause a host of other issues.
