A man has been homeless for three years and is sleeping in a tent by a riverbed in CA. He heard about us through a friend of his whose pet we had previously helped this year.
He called our office to complete an intake with a case manager. An intake was performed and completed upon the homeless verification.
Panda is a ten-year-old Pit Bull who had been spayed about a month prior and from that day on she had not been acting like her normal self. Panda was showing symptoms such as discharge, eating and drinking very little, and had labored breathing for about two weeks now.
Panda’s case manager was able to get her seen right away with a Partner Veterinary Hospital.
After the examination, the technician explained that the doctor could not do much externally and needed to perform x-rays to be able to see the problem better. After reviewing the x-rays, the doctor wanted to perform surgery on Panda due to her uterus stem being infected which was choking the large intestine. The uterus needed to be removed.
They provided the anesthesia and pain medications for the surgery. Panda was sent home with medications, and we hope that she has been recovering well. Her owner did call to give thanks and explained that she was looking and feeling better than she had for those two weeks.
Feeding Pets of the Homeless contributed $950 towards Panda’s care. The hospital gave us a $105 discount. We are so glad we were able to help Panda and get her feeling better with the extraordinary care that our Partner Veterinary Hospital provided.
