Medical Status, Updates, and Treatment Progress for May 2019.
Look at me now!!!! After 3 days in the hospital, Doc took me out of oxygen last night and I did very well breathing without difficulty. I’m heading back to my foster fam with lots of meds. I haven’t been eating well in the hospital so maybe we can stop on our way for a hamburger??? Just Sayin!! I’m so grateful for the excellent care and to be feeling much better. Doc will see me in 10 days for a recheck and more radiographs. For now, I’m just enjoying the ride and can’t wait to get back to my foster home. A million thanks for all the donations for my care. My bills are adding up fast so the folks at DRSF are very grateful. Thanks, everyone for all the prayers, well wishes and encouragement too!! Love, Jamey 🤗🐾❤️
Just spoke with Jamey’s vet. Day to day with supportive care. Medications have been added and evaluating him after he’s been on his meds for 24 hours. Oxygen therapy is precautionary. This is all heart-worm symptomatic, post-treatment and Jamey is being monitored closely.
Takoda is maintaining daily with medications and a special diet. Myasthenia gravis and Addison’s disease have both been ruled out. Hoping medications and diet can support him enough to gain weight. So far vomiting has subsided. If it should flare up again then a scope would be necessary.
Winston has now been diagnosed with urate crystals in his urine and has been placed on a prescription diet. His suture removal and recheck are scheduled for 6/4. All surgical sites look great and he seems to be urinating well.
Titus is doing better. Still trying to gain weight and on a gastrointestinal diet. More bright and alert the past few days.
Hope is thankfully heart-worm negative. She has intestinal parasites and medication has been ordered. Doc placed her on phenobarbital as she has a history of seizures. Calories and lots of good care are needed in the short term. Hope has a decubitus pressure ulcer on her hip bone which has begun to heal.
Although it has become a long road to recovery for some of these rescues, they are responding to care and love provided by our volunteers and medical professionals. Thanks to everyone involved with these rescues!!
