Houston K-911 Rescue would like to thank everyone for your heartfelt prayers and generous donations for sweet Arlo. We sincerely appreciate the support in helping the innocent and helpless animals who are in desperate need.
Today Arlo greeted me with a slow wag of his tail. It was a happy and hopeful surprise to see. It made me tear up to see him so vunerable yet so accepting of his condition
He's being a good little patient.
Arlo has had his second bandage change and his wounds are pink and granulating. This is great news. His xrays show a possible digit fracture on one of his hide feet but really, that is the least of his worries.
He continues to be on a pain med drip and he is receiving a hunger stimulate so he will eat something. He was offered a dish of diced chicken which he sniffed at but didn't eat. The tech determined that Arlo probably wanted it warmed up and sure enough he eat a little bit after the food was warmed. It's all good baby Arlo. You want it warmed, it will be warmed.
The next phase of his healing process will begin with a trip to Texas A&M Veterinary Hospital where Arlo will be seem by a soft tissue specialist. If surgery is needed it will have to be determined rather quickly. He'll be headed there on Wednesday.
Right now he is resting at Vergi 24/7. Katie Wing is on her way to visit him and bring him a temprapedic bed for tonight for a more comfortable sleep.
Please continue to pray for Arlo. He is still in very bad shape and the constant care is critical to his healing.
He has a long way to go with many weeks of treatment and specialized wound care.
Donations are greatly appreciated and NEEDED.
