Meet Lenore (first photo)! This little lady was surrendered to us from another clinic due to severe mastitis (infection of all the teats). She was in a lot of pain and the infection was spreading. Following a pretty aggressive antibiotic flushing and packing of the wound, our medical team was able to perform the surgery she needed and she recovered extremely well! Lenore is living happily ever after in her new home.
Brownie (second photo) arrived at our shelter with a skin infection that caused him to lose most of his fur; however, he doesn’t let that stop him from living his best life! After some expert care from our medical team, this sweet boy’s hair is starting to grow back while he enjoys his afternoons playing fetch and cuddling with his new adoptive parents.
