    We are looking to get the word out on a “GoFundMe” page to assist with veterinary expenses on our 2 year old Basset Hound, Leonardo. My daughter, a student at WSHS, developed the GFM page on her own after learning about the high cost of IVDD spinal surgery and physical therapy to come. Any donations or help in sharing the page would be greatly appreciated. The detail can be found here: https://www.gofundme.com/help-leonardo-walk-again?pc=em_dn_contacts_r&rcid=r01-155873763416-1e93433d42dc48c2&member=2293312
    Thank you!

    Thank you so much for rescuing Leo! Our hearts go out to you and him. Furry Faces Foundation can provide some assistance with the veterinary bill. Could you please contact us at furryfaces@hotmail.com and provide us with the name of the vet you’ve been working with? We may also have additional resources available so may have more questions for you, we’ll be able to provide more information once we’ve been able to connect via email. If you could please put Leo the Bassett in the subject of the email, we’ll know to respond as quickly as we can. Since we are an all volunteer organization, this usually means when we have lunch breaks or after work.
    Looking forward to hearing from you and hoping we can help!
    Sincerely,
    Linda Turner
    Secretary, Furry Faces Foundation

    Thanks Jeannie, I had checked out their GoFundMe page prior to posting here. Because Furry Faces Foundation is a 501(c)(3), we can only assist by paying the veterinarian directly, we cannot contribute via a GoFundMe page. We’re going to reach out to them via the page as well in case they have not checked back on their blog post.

    Is it a paralysis issue? I have a cat who has been treated by a holistic practitioner, his back legs were suddenly paralyzed last fall. We have had success with this treatment, I highly recommend him. His name is Dr. Nels, nels_healingministryforanimals.com

    My dog was standing in the yard a month ago, let out a scream, sat down and couldn’t move her hindquarters. Short version: She has been getting acupuncture, laser treatments, and many herbs and cbs’s. After 4 weeks she is walking, running and going up and down stairs. No surgery done.

    @franci and @birdresuer, thanks for your comments. We are presently looking into acupuncture and other therapies. As far as a condition update, Leo is 2 weeks since his surgery and has started to swing his right leg forward as we walk with his sling (to hold up his butt). No action from his left leg yet, I am a little worried about that one. He has started to wag the tip of his tail a little which is nice to see. I am starting to research wheeled walker devices now. I have even seen DIY versions on Youtube. Thanks again to all that have donated at https://www.gofundme.com/help-leonardo-walk-again?pc=em_dn_contacts_r&rcid=r01-155873763416-1e93433d42dc48c2&member=2293312.

    I am told there is a pet acupuncturist in White Center. I use Melissa Walk at
    petsthrive@vvcseattle.com. Great doc, great success.

    I also did acupuncture for my cat. For awhile he was getting both treatments. I highly recommend Grace Kline at Kingdom of Basil. His veterinarian endorsed Grace’s work as well.

    Welcome to Kingdom of Basil!
