Dear supporters and friends of Springer Rescue Scotland,
We are overwhelmed with gratitude as we share with you the incredible journey of Georgie, a 10-month-old Springer who recently found his way into the loving care of Springer Rescue Scotland. We want to express our heartfelt appreciation for your unwavering support throughout Georgie’s medical journey.
In June 2023, Georgie’s foster carer noticed something concerning—an intermittent limp that seemed to trouble young Georgie of just 7 months. Concerned for his well-being, they promptly took him to the vet, who, in turn, referred Georgie to an orthopaedic specialist vet. The diagnosis was as heart-wrenching as it was familiar to us.
A CT scan revealed IOHC (Incomplete Ossification of the Humeral Condyle) fissures in Georgie’s elbows. This hereditary condition in Spaniels can lead to fractures if left untreated. Some of you may recall SRS Loki, who suffered a similar fate, resulting in the amputation of his front leg and the insertion of a screw. Now, Georgie stood at a crossroads, facing a costly yet necessary operation to insert screws into his elbows to prevent further harm.
Thanks to your remarkable generosity and unwavering support, Georgie’s journey towards recovery has been a testament to his bravery and resilience. With your help, we successfully raised the funds needed for Georgie’s operation, covering the CT scan and the insertion of screws into his elbows.
We are humbled by the incredible support received, with a total of £3,434.21 raised, along with £702.38 in Gift Aid. Your donations have not only ensured Georgie’s complete recovery but have also contributed to the ongoing mission of Springer Rescue Scotland, enabling us to rescue and care for more dogs in need.
