Help Our Dogs In Need

 

Daisy Can't Breathe or See well

Daisy is the cutest little pitbull/bulldog we have ever seen! We found this 7 year old lady at a City shelter, her ears hacked off and clearly had puppies at some point(s) in her life. Almost immediately after we rescued her we realized she was struggling with some major medical issues - her eyes and her breathing. Poor baby had a respiratory distress episode and could barely breathe, we did our best to cool her down and calm her down but ultimately had to run her to the vet. He confirmed that Daisy has an extremely restricted soft palate (airway) which requires surgical correction, as do both of her eyes for a condition called entropion, where the eyelids and lashes roll inward and cause irritation to the cornea. She will have surgery on her palate and eyes and feel much better very soon! Despite her ailments Daisy is constantly smiling and wagging.


Bella is Sick from Head-to-Toe

We are helping Bella overcome several health issues - bronchitis, gastroenteritis, an eye infection, a skin condition... She is hospitalized and feeling so miserable from head to toe. This sweet 5-year-old lady was so sad when she came to us after losing the only home she knew her whole life and now she is suffering from numerous ailments that need our help. Thank you for assisting with Bella's medical care.


Brando Can't Catch a Break

Brando is probably one of the nicest dogs you will ever meet! This sweet red teddy bear was rescued from a City shelter in seemingly good health but we quickly realized that he had numerous medical issues.

First were the seizures/tremors/collapsing episodes. We consulted with a vet who diagnosed Brando with a heart murmur, so off to the cardiologist he went for further evaluation. The cardiologist confirmed a high level heart murmur with some changes to the overall function of the heart but luckily the condition is currently stable, it is unlikely the cause of Brando's seizures/tremors/collapsing episodes. Brando probably has a seizure disorder (like epilepsy) and may at some point do a trial anti-seizure medication.

Then two growths suddenly appeared (one on his leg and one on his neck.)  A preliminary biopsy was done which confirmed a high grade malignant (cancerous) mast cell tumor.  Brando will have surgery to remove both lumps which hopefully will remove all of the cancer.  


Portabella Needs Your Help to Heal

Portabella had a rough time after her routine spay surgery. We picked her up from the shelter spay clinic and a couple days later we had her at the emergency hospital because her spay incision became infected and completely opened up. She needed surgical correction and a drain placed. Unfortunately her problems didn't end there - after surgery she couldn't stop bleeding. We are awaiting results from blood tests that will determine if she has a blood clotting disorder... meanwhile she is sporting a fun red bandage wrap and relaxing comfortably until we can figure out and treat her issues.
