A Great pup-date on Mr Harvey.

All of his testings have come out better and better almost to a normal level and Mr Harvey was just able to be neutered! He is now in the process of continuing controlled pace weight gain and will soon be ready to start searching for a very home of his own!

A Pup-date on Harvey (Sorry a little delayed but Florida was hit with a pretty bad hurricane and we are all trying to put everything back together still, So thank you for your patience!)

Mr Harvey had his full work up Blood, urine and Ultrasound to check out all his organs and to see a base line of where physically we are at. Surprisingly enough, Mr Harvey is in pretty good standing for the awful shape he is in. His organs have not started shutting down yet, so we think he was caught just in the nick of time!

Mr Harvey does have to be re-checked weekly to make sure his organs take to processing food again properly. He does have to be weighed daily and he is on a strict food/diet schedule every 3 hours. His whole body has to get used to processing food and water normally again, and get his body out of starvation mode.

He has to have medicated baths daily to treat his generalized staph infection, because his body is just too weak to handle ingesting antibiotics. His medical foster says he absolutely loves the bath and thinks it's spa day so that's a little win for little Harvey!

He is infested with Hook, Round and whip worms even including Raccoon roundworms which is very rare and takes quite a bit longer and different to treat. This poor boy was bombarded from every angle with things making him sick, but little by little. Day by day, we are beating everything and he get's a little bit stronger every day!

It is going to be a long road to recovery for Mr Harvey, but with us all fighting by his side and now receiving the life saving and maintaining medical care he so desperately needed. He will recover! He will be able to find his forever home when he is healthy, and it's because of everyone's support he has that chance now!

Keep an eye on pup-dates to see Harvey's progress to a happy healthy handsome boy we know he is!

Harvey made the travel from Miami and Rugaz Rescue Inc! He is now receiving stabilizing care for the night. He enjoyed his medicated bath, getting the caked layers of fecal matter and mud from between his toes and skin. It uncovered a large generalized staph infection that will also need to be treated.

He will be be admitting into Animal Hospital of Regency Park tomorrow to start his full panels of bloodwork and urine to get a baseline of how his organs are functioning. That's just the start to this journey of healing. Please send positive healing vibes, and remember. No donation is too small! Every $1.00 makes a difference in Harveys life!
