2 German Shepherds in need of rescue at CMACC!!
We currently have two emaciated German Shepherds in need of rescue. I currently have the black one in temp foster, but he can't stay there.
If you are willing to save Oliver I need advanced notice, so I can get his foster parent to bring him in.
Is anyone willing to save one, please let me know today or Lori tomorrow.
Oliver A1047755 - Male Black German Shepherd
Age - 6-8 years (looks/acts like he is only two years old)
Temp - 101.0
Heartworm test â Neg.
Fecal exam - tapeworm segments present
Exam: He is underweight, gaining while here but still needs another 10-15 lbs. Teeth are moderately worn down, mainly at the incisors. Hair loss present around the eyes. Skin scrape performed at the area of hair-loss and was negative. The rear left hip has a distinctive "Pop" when rotating +/- dysplasia will need x-rays to confirm. He is not painful at the hip, and is not lame. The low of weight has likely been helpful to his hips. Was bathed at time of exam, to remove mattes from hair, as well as outside debris. He has been well behaved for the whole exam and bath. Calm, but attentive personality.
Review set to schedule neuter after weight gain. Okay to adopt to public, and send to surgery early if needed.
Iverhart max (praziquantel for tapeworms)
Rabies 1 year
A5022685 "Eli" neutered male brown/black
Basic exam was performed for Rescue Purpose only.
Age 2-3 years
Heartworm test- neg
Fecal exam- neg
Canine is emaciated.
Stool is semi formed and tan in color. No perianal fistulas present or polyps in rectum felt. He does have normal sphincter control just increased urge to defecate. No fecal cytology was performed at this time. Starting on Met. 500 mg. Bid for 5days.
Eli was surrendered due to chronic diarrhea, from notes it appears owner spoke with breeder, but never went to a vet for work up. The diarrhea may be as simple as food allergy, poor diet, or Giardia infection to IBD or EPI (pancreatic insufficiency); both are digestive disorders common in shepherd. Will seek Rescue.
