Look at these eyes… RICKY has been found inside a carton box at one of Valencia´s Parks. The box was closed and inside, he was barely moving.
Someone heard the faint noises and cries, opened the box, and there he was looking at them with those pleading eyes. They took him home immediately and tried to feed him, but something strange was happening, somehow food couldn´t reach the stomach.
No matter how hard they tried, food just wasn´t going through. RICKY was slowly starving. At that point they asked for our help.
We took Ricky to our hospital and performed the necessary tests, X-Rays, CT Scan… It is clear…This is why he was dumped on the streets to die on his own, RICKY has MEGAESOFAGUS.
RICKY´S ONLY CHANCE TO SURVIVE IS TO PERFORM A SURGERY to cut the ligament that is shutting down the stomach´s entry and then introduce a balloon to enlarge the narrow passage.
THIS IS AN EXTREMELY DELICATE SURGERY, ONLY AT THE REACH OF A HANDFUL OF MEDICAL TEAMS IN THE WORLD.
PLEASE LOOK AT RICKY´S FACE… Without this surgery he will starve to death, or DIE ASPHYXIATED IN HIS OWN VOMIT.
AT THIS STAGE, ONLY YOU CAN SAVE HIM….
P.S. After he is completely recovered RICKY is going to need an amazing home, a home where he will be loved and protected forever.. Please write to me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe you are that family. Please include your personal story as well as pictures to help us take an adoption decision.
