T-Bird found to have treatable illness

The dog that was rescued during an eight-state dog-fighting raid and helped by an online Love-A-Bull  fund raiser has been diagnosed with a treatable ailment.

Doctors determined T-Bird has a colon polyp. While manageable, the disease could present problems for T-Bird in the future.

After only a few days, Love-A-Bull supporters helped raise more than $2,000 for T-Bird’s medical care, an effort that organizers hoped to accomplish within two weeks.

Volunteers believed T-Bird needed surgery to remove a large mass, but were not sure of its cause until a biopsy performed earlier this week led doctors to the answer.

Before his rescue in 2009, T-Bird spent an estimated three years inside a cage as part of a dog fighting operation. He spent the following two years in a kennel as evidence.

Despite a rough life, rescuers report T-Bird has a sweet disposition.

Those who wish to contribute to a fund for T-Bird’s future care can call Oak Hill Veterinary Clinic at 512-288-1016. Please specify that you would like your donation to go toward Love-A-Bull’s fund for T-Bird.
