Update: Mr Guy (aka Cinco De Guyo)

ImageI am truly humbled by the generosity of you all. We met our goal of $350.00 for Mr. Guy’s surgery, within just a few hours! That is so amazing!

I would like to thank; Jessie, Angela, Marion, Mary and Alicia. Ladies, you have huge hearts and have made such a difference in this little dog’s life. Thank you so much for your compassion.

And, speaking of Mr. Guy, I have news!

Dr. Ward says that this particular deformity is called Ectodactyly, or Lobster Claw deformity. It involves the deficiency or absence of one or more central toes forming a claw-like appendage. It is seen in humans; toads, salamanders, dogs and cats, although it is quit a rare occurrence.

Dr. Ward who has affectionately named Mr. Guy ‘Cinco De Guyo’ (Cinco for 5 legs), reports that the surgery went well, although it took longer than she had anticipated due to abnormal blood vessels and creatively trying to move muscles to cover the shoulder joint for cosmetics.

She also neutered and micro-chipped him while he was under anesthesia.

One of Dr. Ward’s clients will foster him during his recovery.

Mr. Guy will remain with Dr. Ward until he is able to stand on his own, eat, drink, poop, and pee…she says it shouldn’t take him long  🙂

She will get a photo once he is up and about so we can see the results!

I will keep you posted!
