When a pet is hurt, it's bad. When he doesn't receive treatment for his injuries, it makes things much worse.
Tiny Beau was attacked by a much-larger dog, damaging his left eye. He received no veterinary care for two weeks and his eye was severely infected by the time he arrived at RSQ in St. George, Utah.
A Petfinder Foundation grant helped cover the cost of medical care for the 10-year-old Maltese-Coton de Tulear mix. Beau underwent several procedures to try to save the eye, but ultimately, it had to be removed.
"During the surgery, the vet found part of the attacking dog’s tooth embedded in one of the wounds," RSQ's Cheryl L. Martin tells us.
In spite of the trauma he'd endured, Beau remained "a lovebug," enjoying belly rubs, walks, and cuddles on the couch.
He fully healed under the loving care of a RSQ volunteer's medical foster home.
"When this volunteer had to go out of town, another volunteer stepped in to dog-sit, immediately fell in love with Beau, and adopted him," Martin says.
She adds: "He is now living his best life in his new fur-ever home, and is living happily with other dogs."
We can help dogs like Beau and many others because of supporters like you. Your donation makes happy "tails" possible for more homeless pets.
