Please note: The dogs in ODH's Final Refuge care are not adoptable due to medical reasons and all are in permanent homes. Your sponsorship supports the veterinary expenses for these dogs - and we thank you!
Zahra was surrendered to a vet clinic for euthanasia. The clinic felt her problems were treatable, treated her flea infestation, and contacted Old Dog Haven. She appeared to have some cardiac issues, as well as severe skin issues, and was posted as urgent. The clinic staff were clearly taken with her and several of them came to bid her farewell. Once home, she politely greeted Final Refuge dog Zoey, resident dog Rocky, and the four cats, and settled right in.
The good news is that her intake exam found no indication of serious cardiac problems. Her earlier sky high blood pressure was probably due to stress. There is an abdominal mass we are monitoring but Zahra’s main treatment is directed at her skin. Frequent bathing with medicated shampoo and a good diet work wonders.
Zahra has been a very good patient with all of the bathing in her first weeks. She also seems to be a fairly social dog. When she has had some more time to recover, she may very well be making appearances at Old Dog Haven Outreach events.
