HSMSC Takes In Injured Dog Lunzie

Lunzie was found by a Good Samaritan running stray. She was severely matted to the point of being unable to defecate due to the matting around her rear end. She also had a condition called KCS or “dry eye” which causes her not to be able to produce tears. Without supplemental tears, her eyes had produced copious amounts of green discharge, which cause the mats around her face to irritate the skin to the point of ulceration. On top of that, she was severely anemic due to an extreme flea infestation, internal parasites and heart worm disease. She also has an umbilical hernia which will need repaired when she is sedated for spay.

She underwent an emergency grooming where she was shaved almost down to the skin, bathed to get rid of the fecal material and live fleas, and received a much needed nail trim since multiple nails had curled back into her paw pads. She has been started on heartworm treatment, antibiotics for the skin infection and eye drops to help stimulate tear production.

    I’d love to hear how Lunzie is doing and if she’s on her way to being adoptable!
