Posted on May 3, 2017Acadiana Humane Societycurrently has 4 rescue animals in medical boarding at Azalea Lakes Veterinary Clinic.
Barney, the 4 lbs dog, is still there hoping to start heartworm treatment soon. Meanwhile, he has had several complications that have prevented them beginning treatment. He is finally doing a little better, but is still having neck pain and holds his neck stiffly. He is currently going through laser therapy for the neck pain, as well as on steroids and pain meds.
Gideon the orange tabby teenage kitten is still there with his eye injury, and is starting to hold his eye open more, although it is still red. Bloodwork shows Gideon has the feline herpes virus, so he is on anti-viral eye drops. As well as on an antifungal for ringworm that he came to us with while at animal control.
Spritz the brown tabby cat that had polyps surgically removed from his ear before, has improved while at the vet. He no longer has a head tilt, and his pupil difference is not as obvious. He is currently being treated for a middle ear infection.
The bunny from St. Martin Animal Control is still being treated for her severe head tilt. She is currently eating Critical Care and hay, and now has a normal stool. She is on Panacur and Baytril for the significant head tilt. She does move around well, in spit of the head tilt. She was on sub-q fluids, but is drinking water on her own now. She is in need of a foster home with no other rabbits, as her condition may be contagious.
