Jewel was found a few days ago after hours by our police officers, running stray (possibly abandoned) with a large chain around her body. She was clearly in bad shape and was immediately transported to the vet where the exam revealed she was infested with foxtails and open sores all over her mid-section and all four paws. Hundreds of foxtails were removed from her body, paws, ears, and even inside her by the wonderful doctors and techs at Jules Veterinary Center. She has extensive scar tissue and injury to her mid-section where the chain was removed from her body.
The wonderful folks at the vet hospital have seen her through sedation, wound treatment/care, foxtail removals, ear cleaning, and after surgery care. She is currently in a loving foster home where she has to have her wounds flushed and medication applied several times daily. She is receiving nutritious food from Nature's Select . We are still finding foxtails on her body. Going forward, we expect her to make a full recovery, but she needs extra attention and care until she would be able to be adopted out.
Within just a few days of loving care in a safe and happy home, Jules is already starting to look better. Though her wounds are still serious, you can already see the beautiful dog who just wants to be loved. We'll take care of you, Jules!
Jules is doing a lot better. Her wounds are no longer oozing or bleeding. Here she is enjoying her daily hydrogen-perozide soad for her belly. Her tummy has numerous puncture wounds from foxtails that need to heal. After all that she has gone through, isn't it amazing she is so trusting to lie calmly on her back?
The big danger is travelling foxtails that could have entered her body and could damage major organs when they exit. A complete MRI is needed to ensure that she is in no danger.
Jules had her first vet visit since coming to True Love Rescue. She is very anemic, low red cell count and high white. The antibiotic cocktail that she is on is the correct one. Her blood work has been sent off to check for pancreatitis. She will go back for an Ultrasound and blood recheck next week. There were a few more foxtails removed also.Ugh. She is so loving and trusting. This picture was taken while she was upside down in her foster Mom's lap.
"Yippee! I just got a phone call from the vet that my test results are OK. I do not have pancreatitis so I can eat normal dog food and start working on my anemia. I just got my first bath and now I smell like baby powder. Boy, am I loved !💗 I realize I am not from Taiwan and am a local rescue but these True Love Rescue people are taking good care of me! I can’t wait to see where this path is going to lead me! Thanks to all of you who are cheering and supporting for me. I am a very lucky girl."
