- ERNIE UPDATE: We know you’ve been wondering, and we apologize for the delay. We were waiting on the official word …
Our little man has been in the great care of Dr. Sewell today. He expects Ernie to make a full recovery, but our mighty snake killer doesn’t seem to want to eat or drink - most likely because his mouth is still so swollen right now. (For the record, he was bitten three times.) He’s on fluids and receiving plenty of electrolytes. If he starts eating soon, he’ll be home by Thursday. The good news is that he’s out of the woods, venom wise, and more bloodwork shows no damage done.
We just need your continued positive thoughts/prayers to encourage our typically ready-to-chow-down boy to start eating a little and speed up his recovery.
Thanks again for all of the wonderful messages, comments and knowledgeable experience with this subject. We have heard of more than one Jack who did not win this battle, so your positive words have helped us all deal with this nightmare much easier and with more confidence and hope. Donna and the team cannot thank you enough.
The donations have been amazing as well and will help us cover some of this enormous, unplanned bill. If you would like to donate to Ernie’s recovery, you can do so on his profile page >> http://www.jackrusselladoptions.org/our-dogs/ernie/
