B I N G O and Bingo was his name o! Bingo! When we rescued Bingo he was the cutest little guy in the shelter with a limp. We have since repaired his leg and removed a mass cell tumor with clean margins. Bingo is a such a trooper and healed like a champ.
Now we would like to find him a family where he can be pampered and appreciated. Bingo is great on walks and in the car. He is wonderful with dogs of all sizes and pays no mind to cats. Although sometimes he is shy with new people he warms up quickly and is great with everyone.
More on Bingo's surgeries. X-rays showed Bingo had an old fracture of the right femur that healed incorrectly. Due to the severity of the injury they thought it would require amputation. Thankfully there was good news....Our vet, Dr. Lim @ Kirkwood Animal Hospital, confirmed with a specialist, Dr. Raush, that Bingo's leg could be repaired! Bingo had surgery by the end of July 2016.
Bingo is a model patient and he is making a great recovery. A plate and a pin were inserted to repair his leg. The plate will stay for the rest of his life, but the pin will be removed when his leg is fully healed.
Each month Bingo has gone back to the vet for an x-ray to ensure his leg is healing properly. After seven months Bingo was ready to have the pin in his leg removed. This was successfully completed in February.
He is such a trooper. Bingo also had a small mass on his chest when we first rescued him. It seemed insignificant at the time and we all agreed to monitor it. However, at his January check up it was discovered that the mass has grown significantly larger. Our vet recommends mass removal at the same time as the pin removal. The mass cell tumor was removed in February with clean margins.
A big thank you to the San Jose Shelter's Guardian Angel Program for the funs they donated to cover Bingo's first surgery to repair his leg. Your generous donations also paid for a portion of Bingo's post operation treatments. And we are so thankful that that the mass removal and biopsy bill was paid with more donations from our followers. Bingo has been through so much while waiting for his forever home.
Please share Bingo's story. We know there is someone out there who is looking to adopt this very special boy.
