Remy arrived to us seven weeks ago… he was practically dead, his body was in shock as a reaction to massive burns covering most of his skull. His condition was, quite simply, incompatible with life.
Recovering all that BONE surface with no underlaying tissue would be extreme difficult, so, we used growth factor in order to encourage the formation of new tissue. We knew it was risky, but it was the only chance Remy had.
The strategy has paid off. Although not entirely, a big part of Remy´s head is now covered with skin and the rest will be covered step by step in a series of small surgeries. Remy´s right eye has also been saved. To protect it while the skin graft continues we have covered the eye with it´s own eyelid.. it looks terrible, but it´s perfectly safe for now.
UNFORTUNATELY, A NEW SITUATION IS TAKING PLACE… ONE THAT PUTS REMY´S LIFE AT RISK. REMY´S URINARY TRACK IS COMPLETELY BLOCKED!… When Remy was rescued he had severe problems peeing, so the first vet performed a procedure called URETEROSTOMY to allow him to pee without problems. Sadly, the procedure failed and the opening that Remy uses to pee is now closed… Please watch Remy´s video to see all we´ve done so far..
WE ARE MAKING AN EXTRAORDINARY EFFORT TO SAVE REMY´S LIFE… BUT WE CAN´T DO IT WITHOUT YOU..
THIS IS A MEDICAL EMERGENCY… REMY WILL BE OPERATED TOMORROW… PLEASE DONATE.. HELP US SAVE HIM…
P.S. REMY doesn´t have a home yet… REMY is going to need an amazing home, a home where he will be able to spend the rest of his life in peace, surrounded by love.
