MEDICAL: He was heartworm positive and xrays showed his hip was broken and needed surgery, First he had to have 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. His back left hip has some deformity and he sits funny and slides, but he gets around well. Ortho recommended no surgery as could make it worse. The old injury healed and he has adjusted to it. He gets Rimadyl as needed for pain. Ortho reported he may not need surgery unless something happens in the future. Ortho wanted interested adopters to know that he doesn't need it now but a hip procedure could possibly be in his future if something changes and need to be able to afford it. We are praying he never needs it. He is free to run, play and take walks and have a happy doggy life!
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.
