LOLITA UPDATE .....


URGENT URGENT URGENT ....... meet Miss Lolita.

LOLITA has an ugly fracture on her upper left leg. She was picked up as a stray and gave birth someone in the recent past (6-8 weeks ago). Break has chipped off a piece of bone that will be placed back and the whole thing pinned thru. She had surgery on MONDAY, 2/29 at Mercy Animal Hospital.

Her first follow-up on 3/14 showed that the surgery site was holding together nicely but calcification was slow. We started some anti oxidant supplements and hope that the blood flow to the site increases to aid in healing. The follow-up on 4/6 showed MUCH IMPROVEMENT!!  The back break is almost healed, the top break is about 1/2 calcified and the lower break is starting to lessen the gap between bones. She has about 2 to 2-1/2 more month to go .... but we are
GETTING THERE!!
X-ray on 3/14  X-ray on 4/6  Lolita trying to put weight on leg 4/8 

   
 
Celebri-dog of the Week ..... JOHNNY CASH
 
 
     
Meet JOHNNY CASH - the fabulous Basset that is the latest additions to the WRDR family. He was spotted by a volunteer and had been chained outside (without shelter) along with various litters of puppies for approximately 2+ years. 2 litters of puppies later, he and his sister were surrendered into rescue. The Bassets were dirty, under weight (low 20 lbs.) , had an upper respiratory infections and had ear/nose/eye infections, were unsterilized and (of course) were infected with heartworms.

He is now in the mid 40's for weight, has resolved all their infections and has been sterilized. JOHNNY is GENTLE, SWEET, NOBLE and is very good natured! He is FRIENDLY, AFFECTIONATE and CRAVES ATTENTION. He is "Lemon" colored with white markings which is a rare coloring. He is undergoing the "slow kill" heartworm treatment and WRDR will provide meds until he tests negative.
     
         
Don't smile at any dog that you feel may be dangerous. To him, you would be baring your teeth which is a sign of aggression. Averting your eyes is a much better approach.
