Our June Bucket Fund horse, Jasper, who was shot twice while standing in his field, had his surgery! (Jasper’s original story linked here.)
The leg bullet is OUT! They are keeping the neck bullet where it is (too risky of a surgery) – but if it becomes infected, they will take it out as well.
We are helping Jasper’s owner pay for his surgery and shocking surprise medical costs.
Here is a note from Jasper’s owner:
Just got off the phone with the surgeon Dr Blake. She wants to remove the bullet in Jasper’s leg. Surgery is set for about 5pm today. She thinks she can do it standing, which will reduce the cost a bit. He will stay one more night and I’m planning to pick him up tomorrow morning (provided all goes well).
She thinks the one in the neck will be best staying where it is at. If it causes an infection down the road, it would need to be removed then.
They won’t let me be in the room for surgery, but she said they will take photos for evidence.
If I get any more news, will let you know.
