Friends to the Forlorn


We pulled Macy from Fulton County Animal Control on November 4th 2015. She has a wonderful spirit despite her medical conditions. It was determined that she is a high heartworm positive, what we thoughts was a mass in her stomach, and her bloodwork came back a little abnormal. She had an ultrasound done and it was determined that her liver was enlarged likely due to the damage done by heartworms.

Macy has recovered from her upper respiratory infection and finished her round of antibiotics and steroids prior to heartworm treatment. Due to the severity of the heartworms, she will require a 3 shot protocol. Macy had her first heartworm treatment injection on 1/25/16. So far, she is doing very well, all things considered. She will have 2 more heartworm treatment injections in about 4 to 6 weeks and will have an additional 4 to 6 weeks of restricted activity after that. We estimate that her heartworms should be fully treated around May 2016.

After Macys heartworm treatment is over, we will address whether she is a good candidate for surgery to correct her luxating patellas. It could be a possibility that surgery might be too risky for her as the heartworms have done extensive, irreversible damage to her heart and liver. We will see how she does over the next few months.

Macys foster mom reports that she has come so far in her recovery already. She has gained a ton of much needed weight, her abdomen has gone down, and her fur is thick, soft, and shiny. She has recently found her voice and will talk to you when she is trying to get in bed if her ramp is not set up. She loves people and has a special crush on a friends roommate. She will not leave his side whenever he visits! Her activity level is being restricted due to the heartworms, so her days mostly consist of cuddling and napping with a periodic snuff around the yard. She has started to show interest in toys, but mainly just tennis balls. All of her human friends cannot stop buzzing about how Macy is a completely different dog now. Her spirits are high and she is doing very well. Although she is not fond of peanut butter, she loves bananas. She is fully of tail wags and pittie kisses!

Despite all of her medical conditions, she is a sweet, sweet girl. She is in a loving foster home that is surrounding her with love, compassion, and comfort. She gets to spend her days in a big, comfy human bed, wrapped in cozy blankets. She will become available for adoption to the right home, although she does have a good ways to go in her recovery first.

Please keep her in your thoughts.
