On Tuesday May 1, 2018 Ping was rescued by Wags 2 Wishes Animal Rescue from Chicago Animal Care & Control in Chicago IL. He was found as a stray and visibly neglected prior to being picked up by Animal Control.
Immediatly W2W took Ping to their vet and he was evaluated and it was our vets opionion that Pings foot/leg/mobility issue was a result of improper nutrition, he was emaciated and only 31 lbs and being kept in a cage or smace to small to allow him to get up and move. He was in need of a specialty orthopedic vet and immediatly we began our search.
Highly recommended by friends in the rescue community Wags 2 Wishes reached out to Dr. Hayes with Boone Animal Hospital in Western Springs, IL. The appointment was setup immediatly and they were able to get Ping in by the end of the week!
On Friday, May 4, 2018 Ping was evaluated by Dr. Hayes and a plan of action has been set in place. Pings front legs were immediatly cast/splinted to relieve pressure on the joints in the front legs. He has little to no use of his back legs and tends to shift all his weight to the front. The immobility in the back is due to not using them for so long, atrophy, tendons are not stretched and there is no muscle what so ever!
With all of the above comes pain, and even the best prescription meds/anti inflammatory is no match for what Ping has been dealing with. We can't get him moving if its painful. Dr. Hayes has recommended Autologuos Conditioned Plasma (ACP) Injections to his back end. Basically it is Pings own blood working to correct the damage AND stop pain! So on Tuesday, May 8th, Ping will go in for his first set of injections.

Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) is an autologous blood plasma ‒ occurring naturally within the body ‒ that is conditioned as part of a special production process, which means that it is largely separated from the other blood components (such as erythrocytes), and concentrated. ACP is a platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
