SUPPORT STORY'S TAIL RECOVERY
This is Story, a 10-year-old American Mustang mare who was surrendered to SKE on October 1st, 2023.
Story suffered an injury that caused her tail to lose circulation and fall off. She still has an open wound over the stump, and will need careful treatment to ensure she heals. All that said - so far, her prognosis for recovery looks good!
We are facing some big intake expenses, so we'd like your help in ensuring we can provide Story with the best care possible ❤️🩹🐴
First Vet Appointment
Her first vet check-up will include an exam under sedation, so the vet can thoroughly clean and examine the area. We'll also do x-rays, to assess the spinal damage involved. This appointment will likely cost between $250-500, depending on the amount of sedation required and the number of x-rays we need to take.
From there, she will need to continue with a combination of oral antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, and pain management, in combination with topical treatments. These treatments will cost between $200-400.
If all goes well, she should heal without needing surgery 🤞We will, however, need to do a follow-up appointment either way, to ensure everything healed well and assess the final location of the spine & tissues. This follow-up would likely cost between $150-300.
Donate to Story
All in all, we're looking at up to $1200 in treatment costs. We are hoping to fundraise at least $1000 to get us started. Help Story by donating below:
