( Jack Russel Terrier and Chihuhua mix female)
Kashi was rescued from Scioto Dog Pound in Portsmouth Ohio
The dog pound contacted us because the rescue that had a hold on Kashi
never showed up to save her from euthanization and the shelter told us that
was exhibiting signs of illness and was not eating or drinking and was very
with an upper respitory infection.
This shelter has no funding available to provide veterinary care for dogs
at the shelter
We agreed to rescue Kashi.
The wonderful staff at Scioto Dog Pound drove Kashi to a nearby vet after
CODA made arrangements
to pay for Kashi's vet exam but neither of the 2 vet clinics in the area had
room available to medically
board Kashi until we could arrange to have her transported safely to Cleveland
So Kashi had to return to the shelter after her vet exam but the shelter did
quarantine her away from the general population for us
Kashi was diagnosed with a terrible case of hookworms and an upper respitory
She was also deyhrated and received sub q fluids at the vet visit
Kashi was started on antibiotics and panacur for the hookworms
A wonderful shelter volunteer came to the shelter the next morning ( saturday)
and picked Kashi up and took her to her house
in order to get her out of the shelter. CODA arranged to have Kashi picked
up the next day ( sunday) from the volunteers house
Kashi would like to thank Eric and Sandy ( CODA Great Dane Parents of Claire
Dane) for driving an 8 hour round trip drive
so that Kashi could quickly and safely arrive at CODA's main foster facility
on Sunday 8/26/07
Kashi was shaking her head a lot and was immediately treated with ear medication.
Kashi was given her medication from the vet upon arrival and given food and
She ate one bite of food but did drink a good amount of water for us
We washed her face and brushed her very well and gave her a lot of love and
petting upon arrival
Kashi has a condition called ' cherry eye' in both of her eyes.
The cherry eye in her left eye is much more advanced
than her right eye and has some bleeding in the eye
Kashi has a pretty severe upper respitory infection and nasal and eye discharge
Kashi is a sweet girl who was wagging her tail even as horrible as she's
feeling right now
Kashi was put into medical quarantine for the night and will be seeing our
Vet Dr. Brian first thing in the morning
We'll have updated photo's of Kashi and further information soon.
Kashi was examined by Dr. Brian first thing this morning as we were very concerned
about the bleeding in her eyes
Upon examining Kashi Dr. Brian stated that she had been severely beaten in
her head and that the extensive
head trauma has caused swelling to her eyes and the bleeding in her eyes
Dr. Brian also discovered that Kashi has a very bad hernia that will need
immediately surgical intervention
Dr. Brian estimated Kashi to be around 7-9 months of age and thought she had
either just had her first heat cycle
or was about to have her first heat cycle .
We will know the results of Kashi's heartworm testing tomorrow and are praying
she's negative for heartworms
Dr. Brian started Kashi on some medication for her eyes and her hernia in
addition to instructing us to continue with the antibiotics
that the Vet Clinic in Portsmouth Oh started her on
Kashi finished her last panacur treatment for her hookworms yesterday evening
Upon arrival back at CODA today, Kashi received a very thorough de-flea bath
and nail trim along with being brushed and pampered a bit
Kashi was a total angel for the bath and nail trim
Kashi is eating very well for us and drinking a lot of water also
Kashi LOVES the new Homestyle Selects
Fresh Refrigerated food we are currently feeding our rescue dogs after
all the dog food tainting cases
Kashi gobbled down her bowl of food at each of her 3 feedings today
Kashi weighed in at 12 lbs at her vet visit and you can see very rib on her,
she is very thin and undernourished
We expect Kashi's multiple surgeries on her eyes and the hernia to be quite
So any and all financial help for Kashi is greatly appreciated
Kashi has completed her surgeries and is doing wonderful
Kashi is now nice and chubby and far from skinny
Kashi has moved to our most experienced and active foster home in Cleveland Ohio and is living with cats, a five year old child and another female dog and is getting along well with everyone at her foster home
Kashi is perfectly housebroken and crate trained
Kashi is a very loving, affectionate and happy dog who will make some lucky family a wonderful lifelong companion and pet
