The shelter did not have the resources to help this dog, so we stepped up. He is already receiving treatment for the severe heartworm infestation, an ear infection, and a skin infection. Since he may not be a good surgical candidate at this time, we have elected to go with the least invasive treatment option for his hip fracture, which is crate rest. His recovery will be a long and slow process.
We will make him available for adoption, once he is cleared by our veterinarian.
