Success Story: Hurley Mudd

Feeding Pets of the Homeless received a call from an advocate at the Volunteers of America in Reno about Hurley Mudd, a 3-year-old female pit bull, who had been stabbed three times in the hind leg by another homeless person.  One wound was very deep.  We aren’t sure what caused the altercation, but Hurley needed to be seen by a veterinarian right away.   Hurley’s guardian stays on the river in downtown Reno, NV.  We approved an examination.

The veterinarian needed to sedate Hurley and clean up the wounds.  We approved this along with a pain injection, blood panel and antibiotics.  While Hurley was sedated, the veterinarian called Feeding Pets of the Homeless and told us while cleaning the wounds, she found one had caused a tear in the abdominal cavity.  She needed to put Hurley under anesthesia and sew up the tear.

The surgery went well and Hurley Mudd stayed at the vet over the weekend.  When her guardian came to pick her up she was wagging her tail and was very happy to see her daddy!
