Fiona is one of the sweetest and kindest Bulldogs I have ever met. She was dumped by the side of a road in Southern MO, Blind and too weak to walk. A kind person stopped and picked her up and through the great people at Dachshund Rescue of St. Louis got her to us at St. Louis English Bulldog Rescue.
Vet visit the next day:
2.5 " diameter tumor from the hard palate
Severe Dry Eye
Body condition 1
Weight 26.8 lbs
Upper Respiratory infection
Erlichia (Tick borne disease) positive
Several rotted teeth
Course of care: attempt to gain weight (5 lbs) so she can survive surgery to remove the throat mass. Cyclosporin for the dry eye.
6 small meals a day of puppy formula and soaked puppy food (high caloric density)
RIght now, Fiona's job is to eat, sleep, pee and poop. After 24 hours she is noticeably steadier on her feet! She has learned the routine, and is resting very well.
She is such a sweet girl, we are going to give her every chance.
