My Story:

Not too much is known about my life before I came into WAG's care other than I had a family that loved me. I was brought into the shelter and the staff's main concern was my health, I had not been feeling well for a few days and had stopped eating when I was surrendered to WAG. After lots of care and tests, my blood work showed severely elevated liver values with non-regenerative anaemia. I  was in the end stages of liver failure and it is most likely due to ingesting something extremely poisonous over a week ago. Despite this, I am such a sweet and happy boy, whose appetite was almost completely gone, except for roasted chicken, so after careful thought, WAG staff and Dr Armstrong agreed that despite my condition and it was a (very) long shot, we just had to try treatment! I was brought back to Eagleview Veterinary Clinic and was hospitalized. After days of hospitalization, I made it! Now I am at the shelter and have my puppy energy back! This has been a HUGE change for me and I can be a little shy to meet new people, after some encouragement though, I come around pretty fast! My recheck went great, my liver is looking awesome, while this is no longer an issue for me, my forever family should be diligently checking my liver health.

 


If you cannot adopt me at this time please consider making a donation to WAG, I was part of WAG's Critical Care program, without which they would not have been able to save my life or the lives of so many others!
