Matatan Cabrera is a beloved boarder who has been with us for over a month. Matatan originally came in when his owner was forced to move and had difficulty finding Pit Bull-friendly housing. The entire time Matatan has been with us he has maintained a happy attitude and is always ready for a walk or a belly rub.
When we first met Frankie, she had unfortunately had an altercation with a much larger dog and came out on the losing end. Frankie came to the hospital with a severe wound to her shell as well as lacerations on her legs. Frankie was put on pain medications and antibiotics and, although her appetite was off for a few days, she is now on the road to a full recovery.
Although Sy's story had a rough start, it quickly turned around thanks to some good samaritans. Sy McGlone was found on the side of the road, in a ditch, near a very busy street. When the McGlone's brought him in he was non-mobile, dehydrated and had abrasions on all four paws. Although we were all concerned about the state Sy was in, radiographs showed no internal damage and his blood work was completely normal. The couple that found Sy took full responsibility for his care and medicated him at home. Since originally coming in, Sy has made great improvements and has come back to see us for vaccine.
Can you imagine trying to keep a 9 month old puppy calm? That is exactly the task that Spy Plazibat's owners have been faced with for the last 2 months. Spy came into the hospital limping and radiographs showed he had a fractured in his right front leg. In order to encourage healing Spy has not been able to run, jump or do many of the activities that puppies enjoy. Spy has undergone multiple radiographs, bandage changes, and hospital stays, and his family has been diligent about bringing him in throughout the entire process.
Twister is a parakeet who had an unusual looking scab along her abdomen. Upon further examination Dr. Peters discovered the scab was covering a very large hole. The wound was scrubbed up and sutured, and Twister was put on antibiotics and pain medication. He healed very quickly and is undergoing the process to re-grow feathers. Although we may never know what type of trauma caused Twister's wound what we do know is that Twister is once again a happy, energetic parakeet.
The saying that cats have nine lives rings very true for Mr. Polar Bear. Originally, Polar Bear came to us from the emergency clinic, because he was having a very difficult time breathing. Testing showed that he had a severe case of bronchitis which, paired with his already short face, made getting oxygen very hard for him. Polar Bear spent a few days in a special oxygen cage with us, getting IV antibiotics as well as round-the-clock respiratory monitoring. Once he was stable enough to not need added oxygen support, our next task was getting his appetite back to that of a healthy kitty. Polar Bear spent a very long time with us and eventually went home with mom, continuing to syringe feed him. Mom reports that, slowly but surely, Polar Bear is gaining his appetite back and starting to act like the friendly, happy cat that he is.
Meet Red, a 10 year old pit bull who came to us with a very bad limp. X-rays showed a very abnormal looking femur bone which prompted Dr. Manley to recommend doing a bone biopsy. The biopsy showed that Red had a cancer called an osteosarcoma growing on his leg. An amputation was performed and, since then, Red's owners report he is back to his happy, playful self. With only three legs, Red still manages to go about his day to day life pain-free.
Henrietta is a rabbit who was presented to EOAH on a Saturday after having been in labor unable to deliver her baby (baby bunnies are called kits!). Because of her difficulties in labor, Henrietta had to go to surgery to have her kit delivered and to be spayed to avoid future birthing complications. Unfortunately, her baby did not make it, but Henrietta had a smooth recovery and is doing well back at home.
Philly is a very sweet Terrier who was diagnosed a few months ago with Lymphoma, a common type of cancer for dogs. He has been undergoing chemotherapy treatments these last few months and has been a great patient. His family has been very dedicated to his care. We are all rooting for Philly to make it through his treatments and get into remission.
