Seven for Kevin

Kevin, a 2-year-old hound mix has been in the UK since May 2016 and was adopted via Wild at Heart Foundation from Cyprus.

Like every stray he had a difficult start to life but even more so by his development being hampered by contracting parvovirus, which compromised his immune system.  Canine parvovirus is a highly contagious viral disease that can produce a life-threatening illness.

When Kevin arrived in the UK he had a cough, and it was assumed that Kevin had contracted kennel cough in transit. However, the cough continued to re-occur. Kevin was referred to a specialist, and after undergoing extensive tests and investigations (including X-rays, CT Scan and bronchoscopy) Kevin was diagnosed with bronchiectasis.

Kevin's insurers have declined cover, on the basis that as Kevin had a cough when he arrived, the condition is deemed to be 'pre-existing'. To date, tests and treatment have cost Helen and Lee in excess £4000. They have used all their savings to date to fund ongoing treatment.



 

At the Foundation we have a commitment to the health and well being of every dog we bring over for adoption and we’d like to support Helen and Lee to raise some funds for Kevin’s vet bills.

Our target is to raise £2000; just 286 people donating £7 will make a real difference to Kevin’s prognosis.

Help us to help him, give Kevin seven.
