MEDICAL: He came to us heartworm positive and xrays showed his hip was broken and needed surgery, Most likely was hit by a car. First he had heartworm treatment. Gunner lost a lot of weight and muscle tone during those 2 months of being calm. After he was cleared by Vet, his Foster Dad started taking him on walks to build his muscles and he gained weight. He had to wait 30-45 days after hw treatment to be cleared to go to the Orthopedic Vet. In January, he had xrays/consult at the Ortho Vet. We are happy to announce that he doesn't need hip surgery at this time. He gets around so well that you wouldn't know there is a problem. Ortho recommended no surgery as could make it worse. The old injury healed and he has adjusted to it. Ortho reported he may not need surgery unless something happens in the future. We are praying he never needs it. He is free to run, play and take walks and have a happy doggy life! He needs family who will keep the exercise up to keep the muscles up in that leg. He loves to go for walks and loves to run laps around a big yard. He also doesn't need to get overweight and put more stress on his hip.
GUNNER feels so much better now. He has more energy, curious, muscles, and is a strong healthy boy! Before hw treatment we would have reported he was laid back, but no longer the same boy. We didn't know how sick he was from the heartworms. His Foster Dad is taking him on walks and he sure has the leg muscles and looking so good! He needs the walks and exercise. He needs active family to keep him moving.
