Your Support Matters
Late yesterday, the Humane Society had a 2 year old, male, Chihuahua mix enter our shelter with extensive medical issues. At first glance we were unable to see what was wrong but knew it had something to do with his jaw as he was not moving it at all.
An attack from another dog left S’mores with a shattered jaw and multiple lacerations to his little body. Due to the lack of a current veterinarian at the Humane Society of Yuma, S’mores was transferred to a local vet to determine the extent of his injuries. The Veterinarian was able to identify that S’mores jaw must be plated and stabilized until his surgery. Being that S’mores is a relatively young dog with a lot of life, HSOY staff decided to go forward with the surgery. The x-rays above show the displacement of his jaw bone.
Though his condition is still unstable at the moment, we are doing everything we can to get S’mores on the road to recovery. He is going into the loving home of one of our foster parents who will syringe feed S’more until his surgery on Monday morning. S’mores must keep the muzzle on his nose to help with stabilizing his jaw, not at all cause he is trying to bite us. He is just the sweetest boy! The Humane Society of Yuma is asking for donations towards his jaw surgery, medical treatments and the recovery process.
Donation will repeat monthly.
