She has been seen by Sharleen’s vet in Victoria TX his name is Dr. Mark Besancon from Cross Roads Veterinary Clinic. It’s obvious that she has been hit and drug by a car. She found herself in a shelter in the valley and we scrambled to get her out of there and get her the much needed medical care she needs.
They are getting her medicated, cleaning her wounds up, and dressing her foot. He is honestly optimistic that there is still hope for her foot. He discussed 3 scenarios for her foot the first would be one would be amputation, the second would be wound care, splints and time to see if full stability is gained, the third would be surgery with a plate to offer stability.
We will keep her with them for a bit while we know that her pain is managed as we begin to look at moving her up here to our specialists to get a look at her.
We got a little update on how Shaggy is doing in the hospital:
This girl has stolen everyone’s heart!! She is a love bug!
They said her foot is looking good and the vascularity is looking good also. She is getting aprox. 25 minute epsom salt soaks when they do her dressing changes. The tissue is good and pink and the edges are beginning to draw in slightly.
She is enjoying her trips outside now and while kenneled she makes sure everyone who happens to pass by her kennel pays attention to her.
She is adorable and looking so happy as she recovers.
Shaggy has been successfully transferred to the Sanctuary. She is friendly, but very fearful of people and her new surroundings. She typically doesn’t put weight on her injured leg and we really aren’t sure if that will happen. She will continue her treatment with Dr. Reno as she continues to heal.
