Will you help this beautiful little dog get the medical care he needs? According to Pug Nation Rescue of Los ANgeles’ Facebook Page:
Animal Samaritans SPCA reached out to us Friday as they found an injured Pug running the streets in their desert community and they simply did not have the resources to help him. We have had a record number of rescues these past few months, but we simply could not say no to little TROY.
Troy, who is estimated to be only three years old, has a huge infected abscess on his neck and it appears he was viciously bitten and the injury was not treated. The shelter staff was alarmed as the wound was bleeding and there was a horrible odor, plus Troy could not hold down any food or even water. We picked him up Saturday morning and brought him to our emergency vet to get immediate blood work and xrays. The abscess needs to be lanced and cleaned, but Troy has been so weak, he cannot even tolerate anesthesia so for now he’s been on antibiotics, IV fluids and meds to calm his distressed tummy. The vets think his throat may have fragments inside that will later need to be surgically removed, but all that remains to be seen.
He has a long road ahead of him…besides his throat, he is undernourished, has an eye ulcer and who knows what other problems will turn up. But Pug Nation will stand by him every step of the way. This morning he was transferred to a specialty vet center and we are hoping he will be strong enough for some important procedures soon. A ray of hope yesterday as he ate his first meal since he was rescued.
Troy needs healing love and prayers; he was a sweet, good boy on his car trip to Los Angeles, nuzzling into a comfy bed and sleeping, but he is also terrified and confused and hurting. Who knows how long this poor Pug was roaming the streets in pain? We shudder with the thought.
