Cleft Palate Puppies

Cleft Palate Puppies

BEAUFORT, SC.....On Friday we got a call from Beaufort County Animal Control about three 14 day old puppies with Cleft Palates.  A cleft palate is an opening between the mouth and nose which occurs when the tissues forming the palate do not fuse properly.    Puppies with this abnormality have a difficult time nursing.

GREENVILLE, SC......Adorable Kelsey is a two-year-old Wire-haired Terrier Mix that was adopted into a Fabulous Family a couple of months ago.   When he first arrived at GCAC he came in with abrasions and what appeared to be bite marks and a fistula (which is an abnormal connection between two hollow spaces) in the roof of his mouth.  Greenville County had drains put in the bite wounds and had the fistula repaired.

BOSLEY (Terrier Mix)

BOSLEY (Terrier Mix)

GREENVILLE, SC....the last two weeks have been nightmares when it comes to pups we have taken in.  Every dog is critical and getting worse by the day. Bosley was going to be euthanized if no one stepped up for him within a day.  He was picked up as a stray and was so sick he was taken to the ER in Greenville, SC.  He was later taken back to Animal Control where they begged for help for this sweet 7-year-old Terrier Mix that weighs around 20 lbs.

NACHO (Chihuahua Mix)

LAWRENCEVILLE, GA.....Sweet does not even begin to describe this adorable one-year-old Chihuahua Mix.   We wish we knew exactly what Nacho was mixed with because he is the perfect size for a dog that is not too small but robust in statue.

SUGARBOO (Boxer Puppy Mix)

SUGARBOO (Boxer Puppy Mix)

YORK, SC....We have been working with this tiny little six-week-old pup for a week.  She has been in and out of ICU and is now back in ICU at Charleston Veterinary Referral Center.   We were asked to help her when York County had been taking her to the ER and could not determine what was making her ill.  She regurgitates her food and then it would come out her nose.  The Shelter did lots of tests and also did a barium swallow test that was also inconclusive.

RILEY (Lab/Corgi Mix)

RILEY (Lab/Corgi Mix)

LEXINGTON, NC...Adorable Riley is a 10 year old Lab / Corgi Mix that was picked up as a stray.  He had been in the shelter before they discovered when they scanned him and found a Microchip.  The Owners refused to come and get him and basically said to do whatever they wanted.  They also said he was 13 years old which we find hard to believe.  He doesn't even look 10 but that is what we are putting down.
