Help Denzel recover from a dog attack

Please donate to help our beautiful boy Denzel's recovery after a severe dog attack.

Just over a week ago, Denzel went missing for a couple of hours which is very unusual. When he came back home, he was covered in mud and sticks. We thought he had taken himself for an adventurous walk but it turned out to be something much more sinister. Denzel had been attacked by 1 or possibly 2 dogs, judging by the extent of the injuries.

He was raced to the vet and he has been  in intensive care at the Pet Emergency Hospital for the past week. From the attack Denzel sustained severe injuries including head trauma, gashing wounds, bites and scratches on his lower half up to his chest. A lot of damage is underneath the skin where the muscle is torn and there are pockets in which infection has grown.

Since being in hospital, Denzel has undergone 2 surgeries including emergency abdominal surgery and surgery on his wounds. The intensive care vets and surgeons have told us that Denzel's journey to recovery may come with many curve balls and potentially further complications and surgeries.

So far we have paid over $4000 for his first night in hospital and an initial deposit on his first surgery. The hospital has advised us the overall cost will be $12,000-$13,000 and potentially more if he requires further surgery.

Denzel is a beautiful, affectionate and happy little King Charles Cavalier with an infectious personality. Everyone who meets Denzel falls in love with him and he is the absolute joy of our lives.

Denzel is where he needs to be right now and he is being cared for by an amazing team.  We appreciate and thank you for any contribution you can make.
