We were able to provide laser treatments and purchase a wheelchair for Kennedy. We were also able to contribute to the veterinary expenses for Daisy Mae, who came to us from [an open-admission] shelter in Georgia with severe kennel cough and intestinal parasites.
How many pets did this grant help?
Two: Daisy Mae and Kennedy
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Kennedy has collapsing discs in his spine with calcification and arthritis. It has severely compromised his ability to walk, run and enjoy playing ball. We were able to seek some additional laser therapy in an effort to reduce inflammation in the spinal cord area affected and possibly increase the use of his rear legs. The Dogly grant funds also enabled us to purchase a wheelchair for him that provides increased stability of his rear legs. He is able to walk and play ball more easily and reduce the dragging of his rear legs and feet while using his wheelchair.
