So here is our new boy TYLER.
Saved by a hero, who saw two high-school boys kicking him as this poor little pup was following them. The hero, took him into SPAYSA to see what he could do with him and someone advised him to take him to San Antonio Animal Care Services - thankfully a fellow rescue was there and followed the man outside and advised against ACS as it could very likely be bad news for him. So the rescuer took him and contacted me to see if I could help.
We arranged to meet today (9th January) and I took him straight to the vets. I had to drop him off since no appointments were available.
He had been given a medicated bath
His face had been cleaned although kind of looks worse at the moment it will now be able to heal.
He tested positive for Demodex mange
He tested positive for severe hook-worms
He is severely malnourished and at the moment that is the main concern
He is on ivermectin for the demodex mange and I have him on panacur for the worms.
I will be giving him plenty of colostrum powder - which I pour on the food - that is what the cream powder is in the photo's.
I will be giving him coconut oil and if anyone would like to donate some raw honey, that would be awesome. I can get a one gallon, texas raw honey tub from a natural foods group I am in for $38 and this is the honey I have always used. I will also be feeding him the high quality canned food that I have, along with the organic kibble for him to fill up on.
In regards to his bones being kind of dis-formed, we are hoping that with a good nutricious diet and him still being young (estimated 4 months) his body will get back in shape and start growing as it should.
I will be taking him back next week for a check up and any further tests will then be carried out.
If anyone would like to donate to his care, I will list items that are good for his nutrition, or monetary donations can be called in direct to our vet - Devine Veterinary Clinic - 830 663 9330 or to our paypal - firstname.lastname@example.org
Please follow the page for updates, I will post as and when I can, but please bare in mind I have a lot going on right now with sick and injured GSDs.
