Hope – Left in a Field, Shot in the Head – Update

6/11/17 – A beautiful morning in southeast Michigan and a happy Hope update. Hope was released yesterday from the hospital. She has not had any seizures since Tuesday when she started treatment. She is now in a quiet, loving foster home where she will be able to decompress from the trauma of this past week and take time to recover. It is not known whether Hope’s eye was damaged by the gun shot. If necessary we will have her see a specialist. Please pray that her eye will not need to be removed. Although there were no signs of a jaw fracture, Hope’s jaw is slackened so the doctor has ordered that she wear a muzzle when not eating. She is on pain and seizure meds and will be monitored closely. She is scheduled to see the doctor in three weeks. ~ dianaHope 6:11:17

6/9/17 – Hope Update: I spoke with the veterinary late yesterday and was told that Hope had no seizures yesterday or the day before — great news. But, the doctor was concerned because Hope’s jaw was was slack. The doctor was going to conduct further examination last night. More to follow. Please continue your prayers and keep in mind that Hope may still need a foster for the rescue who will be taking her in. She will need a quiet home where she can recover. More to follow. ~ dianahope 6:9:17Hope--6:9:17

Hammy (Lil’ Ham) – Found Living on the Streets

6//9/17 – Last week I received a call from one of the great veterinaries who work with us. A woman brought in a dog that her friend had found on the street. They attempted to find an owner but were unsuccessful. The dog, now known as Lil’ Ham, had nails 2-3 inches long which prevented him from walking flat on his paws. The rescuers had taken Lil’ Ham to the vet for a wellness check but two weeks later, he had 4 seizures without warning. Of course we agreed to help this very sweet emaciated boy. Lil’ Ham was again seen by the doctor and was given medication. He has not had a seizure since. Lil’ Ham (Hammy) will be monitored for 3 weeks and if he continues to be without seizures, he will be neutered and vaccinated. His rescuer, Katie, says that Hammy is sweet and affectionate and loves to snuggle. He is also cat safe. Anyone interested in Hammy should contact Katie at: [email protected] ~ dianaHammy 6:9:17

Muffin – Her Owner Passed Away and Now She May Have Cancer

6/8/17 – Please say a prayer for sweet Muffin. She is 13 years old and her owner passed away. The owners family surrendered her to a rescue, but in the process of getting her groomed for her new journey, a mass was found. She was taken to a vet who aspirated the mass and the doctor believed that it might be cancerous. There was no way of being assured without a biopsy, blood test, and x-rays which the rescue could not afford. 4 Paws 1 Heart has paid for Muffin to be seen by the professional staff at Hartrick Veterinary Clinic. The tests x ray and blood work was negative. We are still working on it for this poor emaciated little girl and if Muffin does have inoperable cancer, a hospice home has been found. ~ dianaMuffin 6:8:17
