Update May 12
We got an update on Pearl today from her foster mom, Robyn. Pearl had a vet visit on Friday. Even after only 3 days in her foster home, you can tell she is feeling better. Check out her video link below. We will update again soon!
“Pearl went to the vet Friday. Dr. C thinks that all of her problems are due to massive infections. The good things are: She is only about 4 years old. She is heartworm negative. She has pretty good teeth. And, her blood work was good. At the vet, she got 2 different eye drops. She also got ear wash and ear drops. She is now eating a special food – Science Diet for Sensitive Skin and Stomach. She has a lime-sulfur dip and has to be dipped everyday. She also has a special shampoo. She is taking prednisone and ketoconazole pills. Pearl still has several things that need to be addressed. She needs to be spayed and have a few moles removed. She also needs to have her eye issues addressed. She goes back to Dr. C in 2 weeks. For now she is going to be medicated, eat and sleep!”
This is the newest member of the Russell Rescue family. Say hello to Pearl. She was on death row in San Antonio, Texas just a day or two ago. The volunteers described her as a dog who could be the poster child for abuse and neglect. Her skin is red and flaking. She has infected ears, skin, and teeth. She is missing much of her fur and possibly has ulcers on her eyes. Even with all that, the volunteers described her as still being sweet and very trusting. Pearl was picked up yesterday from the shelter by Russell Rescue volunteer, Debi, and spent the night there. She arrived at her foster home this morning. Robyn, her foster mom, will make sure she gets the vetting and care she needs to begin her journey to recovery. Pearl has a long road ahead of her. We will update you on her journey, and we will work to give her the happy and healthy life that she deserves! In the meantime, she will be spoiled gently until she is as beautiful outside as she is inside! Make sure to watch the videos of Pearl! You can see how sweet she is. Her little tail just keeps wagging!
