On Saturday, January 13th, Tiny was rescued from the extreme cold from a place with little shelter and not enough food. As the smallest dog in the area, Tiny finished last accessing food. On arrival to her foster home, it was obvious that Tiny had a widespread infection with bleeding, oozing, scaley skin. Tiny was immediately taken to 8th Street Pets & Vets. The vet team shaved, bathed, dewormed and administered IV hydration. Tiny returned to her foster that evening and is on her journey to recovery in a warm house with clean bedding, antibiotics, skin cleansers, ample food and lots of love. While Tiny is understandably totally obsessed with food, despite her rough start and current medical issues, she is a pretty happy girl who follows people in the house and loves to snuggle on the couch.
Update: She continues to improve. Her skin is less angry/red. The gabapentin really knocks her out which is good because then she’s not scratching. She is glued to her foster mom’s ankle. Any activity in the kitchen gets her immediate attention even when she’s fast asleep! She sleeps nice overnight in her dog bed by the big bed. Her foster changes and washes bedding for the dog beds and couch covers daily. Tiny is generally quite happy and loves cuddling particularly with her foster dad who is super dooper allergic to her, but loves to give her hugs then going wash off!
