Dog suffers setback in recovery from burns
A dog recovering from burns will require more involved and more expensive treatment than originally thought, a veterinarian involved in the care said Thursday.Posted — Updated
Cocoa was being treated at Cape Fear Animal Hospital, but the owner, Dr. Sarah Morgan, said Thursday that she recommended the dog be moved to a 24-hour care facility in Raleigh.
Morgan said Cocoa's care will ultimately cost between $8,000 and $9,000.
A medical supplier who heard Cocoa's story provided some burn treatment medication for free, and other members of the community have donated to help defray some of those costs.
