2/25/20 UPDATE – Otis’ follow-up heart worm test was negative. YEAH!!!
2/24/20 – This past Saturday our friend Megan of Friends of Scooby contacted me about helping Otis. Here is her message:
“Meet Otis. His life has been turned upside down this past year. He was very loved and taken care of leading up to this last year. His owner fell ill with cancer and then had a stroke. He was often overlooked. I was contacted by the family after her passing, asking if I could help place him due to his current living arrangements. He’s been here two days and he’s feeling kind of punky with goopy eyes and itchy skin. Can you help? – Megan”
Otis was taken to the vet where he received basic vaccines, had heart worm and fecal tests, had an eye wash and was given drops and antibiotics. Because his heart worm test results were questionable, he is being tested again this morning. Prayers that the test results are negative. There are so many pets who find themselves in this position when their parents die. It’s such a very sad situation and we couldn’t keep helping without your support and donations. – diana
