4/2021 Update on OLBD Georgia.
Georgia came to us late September and immediately vetted and was found to be Heartworm positive. After obtaining past vetting records, she had been suffering with that condition for well over a year and never successfully treated. She was also diagnosed with “moderate” hip dysplasia. We are happy to say that she is Heartworm free and was cleared for her spay surgery. Her foster noticed that there had been a stiffness in her hips after play so while under anesthesia for spay, we had X-rays done on her hips. Her right hip is now listed as “severe” and is causing her pain. So, she will be having FHO surgery on her right hip now and in the future will most likely need the left done.
Georgia is a sweet and loving girl and has come through all these obstacles like a champ! That’s thanks to her equally sweet and loving foster! From the beginning she has given her the care, patience and understanding to get her through all this and learn to trust.
Because of the lengthy treatment so far and the procedures and rehab needed in her future, her foster can’t imagine not seeing her through this now and anything she might face in the future for the rest of her life! So Georgia will be staying right where she is!
When healthy, we can make it official but I think Georgia already knows she’s home!!! Please keep Georgia in your prayers as she faces her surgery and rehab. And, thank you for making it possible! We love you sweet Georgia!! <3
