He was thought to have had a stroke. The symptoms were all there. And instead Edo, the 12-year-old dog found in the municipal kennel of Brindisi lying in his box, on the ground, with obvious neurological problems, has a vertebral disc disease, a reduction in the C3-4 interbody space which unfortunately, now, no longer does it. to walk.
We told his story a month ago, and although unfortunately his condition has worsened, today Edo has a home and a family that loves him, ready to help him face the last years on this earth in serenity.
“After the article published in La Zampa, we were contacted by many people interested in Edo,” says Claudia, a volunteer from Lepa in Brindisi. “Many people have been touched by his story and for him we have received two requests for adoption and three for home stall, in addition to the financial support that has allowed us to make a collection to pay for the neurological visit in the kennel and the CT scan. This is why I would like so much to thank Laura, Angela, Francesco and Claudia, Mariaelena, Anna, Claudia S., Marcella and the association Salva un Cane Aee of Lecco ».
From specialist visits it is not clear whether “he will have to undergo surgery or if it would be useless. At the moment Edo doesn’t get up anymore, even if he has sensitivity to his paws he can’t get up ». Not a simple situation, for which love is not enough: special care, gymnastics and continuous attention are needed, in addition to medicines. And to offer him all this were Cecilia and Gianni, a couple from Mesagne who opened his heart to Edo “even if we don’t know if he can improve and walk again”.
Harnesses or trolley are not possible alternatives. Edo can only be lying on an anti-decubitus mattress, but he is still able to give a lot of love. “I have been a volunteer since I was 12 and now I am 28,” says Cecilia. «Claudia’s call has opened a rift in my heart. Not of pain, but of light. I believe that this is the main mission in the life of each of us: to show the light to those who, 4 legs or not, believe that the world is only covered by a gloomy veil of darkness. How? Loving. I talked about it with my partner, Gianni, and with a few days of evaluation we felt it was right to take Edo. We decided to keep his paw until the end of his life path. The secret of life is to look at everything from another point of view, and this is also what Edo says. Even if she can’t walk anymore, with our super gymnastics we can go anywhere! We can chase winged unicorns and challenge the most daring dragons. Our choice was dictated by love ».
