This handsome fellow is a 9 month old Siberian Husky pup named Zeus. Zeus and his human dad were unfortunately involved in a car accident recently. The car was totaled but luckily Zeus’s dad was unhurt.
Zeus initially seemed fine too, although he was tossed about a little in the back seat. It was only later at home that he began to show signs that he was unwell. His veterinarian diagnosed Zeus with intussusception, a condition where one segment of the intestines slides (or “telescopes”) into another.
Zeus required surgery to fix his urgent medical problem, and the combination of an unexpected car accident and a veterinary emergency were financially difficult for his family to handle.
With the help of a grant from FACE, Zeus was able to get the surgery he needed and is now back at home recovering with his family!
