Blood Transfusions Due To Tick Infestation

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever
  • Name: Anemic Puppy
  • Color: Black
  • Size: Medium
  • Sex: Male
  • Age: Baby

This sweet little puppy is only 3 months old. 

His owners surrendered him completely covered in fleas and ticks. We are rushing him to the ER because he is weak and anemic. He will be treated for the fleas and ticks and they will be removed. We will get him strong and healthy again and help him find a furever home when he is ready. We will update as soon as we can. Right now he needs medical attention- If you are willing to make a donation toward his medical care, we would really appreciate it. He also has a wishlist registry. You can send him a gift to brighten his day; he will be able to take all of his gifts with him when he gets adopted. 

If his previous owners had given him flea and tick prevention this never would have happened. You can help him with flea and tick treatments for his future health; we are listing that on his registry. 


  • Little baby Bernie is getting stronger every day. He is enjoying the gifts that have been sent to him so far and he is so thankful for everyone who has helped save his life. Please continue to support Bernie, he still has a way to go before he is strong enough to find his forever home.

  • Please keep sending well wishes and prayers for our sweet sick boy.

    Bernie is so sweet but obviously very scared. He is slowly starting to recover. He received a blood transfusion and a plasma transfusion but had a negative reaction to the blood transfusion and started urinating blood. He will be getting another plasma transfusion shortly and they have been removing the ticks. 

    He is weak and VERY ANEMIC as you can imagine!  His PAC cells level was 6, he began peeing blood, this is due to his blood not clotting. They think it might be tick related or that he also might have gotten into Rat Poison. His PAC came back up to a 9 but still needs to be much higher.

    We will continue to monitor him closely. Please help and support Bernie.
