SAVE CHOPIN : HIT BY A SPEEDING CAR , HIS JAW IS COMPLETELY SHATTERED !
A shadow trembling on the bare floor. It has been two days he could not eat anything solid. He is panting through his mouth that appears to be shattered in an asymmetrical way. This is how we found Chopin in the public shelter he was brought in.
His story is not unlike many others in this country , a stray dog living in the streets , Chopin gets hit by a speeding car in the highway. It happens fast but surely not without agonising pain and terror. By-passers find Chopin the next day on the other side of the highway , his mouth wide open and waiting for help.
The accident shattered Chopin’s jaw from four places and left him handicapped for life. By the time he was brought to the public shelter , the damage was already done. Chopin waited there , unable to eat or swallow anything solid. A helpless soul who is ready for anything , even death staring right into your soul…
We could not bear to see an innocent soul waiting for a certain death , we brought Chopin to our hospital the moment we have seen him suffering on the shelter ground.
Chopın’s x-rays are not very bright. His mandibular bone is broken from several places making it impossible for anything solid to go through his throat, he also has other fractures on his vertebra. His legs are destroyed by open wounds caused by the accident. An incredibly painful state to be in…
At the moment Chopin is being fed with fluids by our vets , we must act very quick if we want his ability to eat solid foods recovered. The wounds on his legs are being attended to however they are very disturbing. The only way to save Chopin is a surgery where his jaw will be fixed internally and externally by our surgeon.
We can not operate Chopin without your help. The operation and the post operative period is long and very costly. On the other hand Chopin will most likely die because he can not eat at all without this operation.
Your help is Chopin’s only hope to return to a normal life. Please contribute through the secure donation button below for his operation and medical expenses. We will send updates through our mailing system to the contributors as well as share them through our Facebook page.
Many thanks on behalf of Chopin !
