10/3/18 UPDATE: Snoopy needs a little more medical treatment than anticipated. He will need some tooth extractions, dental cleaning, treatment for mites and an ear infection.
10/2/18 – Meet Snoopy. Last week I received the following request for help: “A neighbor of my friend has had this dog outside for 6 to 8 months in all of the hot/ cold/wet weather. I have called animal control many times and they have done nothing. So I was over there and saw the lady outside; I walked up and asked if it was her dog. She said “yes do you want it?” I said yes and after her telling me the breed, name, and age and that she wont let him in the house because he peed on the floor, I took the dog home. He is matted badly. His feet look to be sore and bleeding and I’m unsure if he’s had shots or is fixed. He’s very scared but I have gotten him to eat and he’s doing ok. I just need help with his first vet checkup shots and fixed if need be and he needs a go hair cut and bath and i would love to keep him. I am aware i would pay for anything afterwards. Thank you for your time!”
Of course we said ‘yes’ and Snoopy saw the vet yesterday. I spoke to the doctor who discussed Snoopy’s medical exam with me and what would be done to take care of Snoopy’s horrible mats. Snoopy was given a heart worm test, had some blood drawn, and treated for possible infection. He was also treated for a serious infestation of fleas and the wonderful staff made arrangements for a groomer to take care of Snoopy’s mats while he was under and being neutered tomorrow . We are very thankful for the person who rescued this very scared and abused dog and for the many veterinarians who choose to work with us. ~ diana
