Piper was hit by a car on January 31, 2018. Her owners contacted our vet who in turn contacted us. The owners were going to put the dog to sleep because they could not afford the time or financial commitment but Dr. Whitley of Bluegrass Animal Clinic wanted to give her a fighting chance.
Piper was surrendered to BRAR on January 31, 2018.
After x-rays it was determined that Piper sustained a pelvic symphisis fracture. She also had some pretty bad road rash and broken teeth. Initially she was in so much pain that she would snap and bite whenever she needed to be moved. But as time has gone by she has started to become easier to move and now even attempts to drag herself, although she is assisted by a sling.
Piper is being boarded for daily therapy and pain control at Bluegrass, which is a daily expense but the best option for her at the moment.
We will continue to update Piper's condition. We still are not sure of her long-term prognosis. We obviously want her to be happy with high quality of life.
Today was another day of puppy inquiries.
Two puppies, Loki and Bogart, were strays that showed up at someone's home. They are chunky little monkeys. They were vaccinated, dewormed and giving flea meds and placed into foster.
We also had two other puppies, Bryce and Fisher, brought in that were allegedly dumped at someone's home. They were given a body condition score of 2 out of 10. All bones are visible through their skin and they're very scared. Fecal analysis showed coccidia. They were vaccinated and placed into our main puppy foster.
We were also contacted about helping rehome sweet Maxie girl.
We've also been contacted by TWO MORE PUPPIES...haven't gathered details yet though.
The moral of the story: SPAY AND NEUTER ALL PETS!!!
