On March 13, 2022, we were contacted by a front line rescuer about an injured dog. Fortunately we had a foster ready and able to take this poor fella in. Winston arrived and was immediately admitted to the WCVM where he was seen for extensive wounds and bruises. He required x-rays and ultrasound to ensure that he didn’t have any broken bones or internal injuries. Winston will remain at the vet college for further treatment of his wounds.

Update: On March 15, 2022, Winston was discharged from the WCVM. He has a drain in his left hind leg to assist in the healing of a particularly deep wound and his foster family are ensuring it is doing its job. He’s bandaged, shaved, and on antibiotics to ensure no infections take hold of the numerous wounds he has sustained, and he will need to wear his cone for the next 2 weeks while he heals.  Meanwhile, he is resting and recuperating in his loving foster home. Winston will need to continue vet care with one of our partner vets to remove the drain and ensure his wounds are healing correctly before he is ready for adoption.

Update: Winston has found his forever home where he is getting all of the love and snuggles he deserves.
