MEDICAL CARE FOR THOSE IN NEED
We take a holistic approach when providing care for our animals. Preventative care is an important part of our routine. We try to incorporate Integrative medicine with traditional Internal medicine. We provide a good quality kibble as well as home cooked meals. Supplements are important as well, including, but not limited to Omega 3s, Glucosamine Chondroitin, Prebiotics and Probiotics. A lot of these poor babies come to us with a large array of medical conditions, some severe and life threatening. They receive the best care, but sadly don't always survive. Many do though, and go on to live long and happy lives. Heartworm disease, parvo, mange, dermatitis, glaucoma, dental disease, arthritis, brain tumors, and cancer are some of the conditions we have encountered. We need your help to continue. Please consider donating to help them get the care and treatment needed.
Melodie/ Tumors and nodules attached to mammary glands
Melodie was 10 years old and had never been spayed. Her entire mammary chain was removed on one side due to the extent of the growth covering the glands. Spaying can greatly reduce the risk of developing this type of cancer. Melody is cancer free, was adopted and has gone on to living a happy life with her forever family.
Maxie/ Metastatic Mesothelioma
After many tests including a thoracentesis, a procedure in which a needle is inserted into the chest cavity to suction fluid into a syringe, it was determined that Maxie had cancer. Her chest continued to fill with fluid and a port was placed under the skin to enable the fluid to be drained safely. Much to our dismay, she declined at a rapid rate and was unable to fight this disease that had attacked her body. Sadly, she passed away suddenly a week later as I held her in my arms.
