Senior desperately needs medical care

  • Breed: Maltese
  • Name: Angel
  • Color: White
  • Size: Small
  • Age: Senior

$155.00 raised of $900.00

This sweetheart was found abandoned in Miami Dade County and was picked up and taken to the overcrowded shelter where he sat alone in a cage waiting for a miracle.  Unfortunately the odds were not on his favor because he is a senior and has multiple health conditions.  He has severe dental calculus and gingivitis, was found matted, flea infested, has possible arthritis, ocular changes, unstable gait, rear legs are weak, heart murmur grade V/VI, enlarged prostate and is underweight. 

Humane euthanasia was recommended if he continued to deteriorate which he was because no medical care was being provided at the county shelter

This little boy will need lots of TLC and extensive medical care, but he now has a fair chance.  Miami Dade Animal Services has an overwhelming amount of pets and they are killing for space, people keep dumping dogs and also surrendering their animals there which makes it impossible for these dogs to walk out of there alive.

Please give ANGEL the gift of life, donations are needed for this loving senior 

Updates

  • Angel had been doing great these past few days, but this morning he did not have an appetite, was a bit weak and sad. He was taken to the vet to find out what can be going on with this fragile and old boy. Liver values are elevated and an abdominal ultrasound was recommended as well as an echocardiogram because his heart is enlarged at this time. Vet believes he is around 12 years of age and is hopeful that Angel will make a full recovery

    Angel will have these imaging studies tomorrow and we are praying and staying positive for him. Thank you for your love and support!!!
