Who doesn’t love a cute puppy? Just look at these 9 week old siblings named Mack and Peter. This brother and sister duo were rejects from a breeder. They were born with cleft lips and palates. Their deformities rendered them as damaged goods. They were dropped off at a veterinarian when they were just days old and scheduled for euthanasia but were given the opportunity to bring them into our adoption program. We were also able to convince the breeder to spay the mom so the breeding would stop. The issues with their birth defect made bottle feeding impossible at first. Our medical staff spent countless hours caring for and feeding these babies. Days after arriving, Peter fell very ill. A blood test showed that he was septic, a dangerous infection in the blood. Thankfully our amazing staff, with the guidance of Dr. Rutz, were able to give him a life-saving blood transfusion. We were all on pins and needles, waiting to see signs of improvement. Within a couple of days, Peter regained his strength and started growing stronger. Eventually this duo was able to transition from tube feeding to bottle feeding and today, they are thriving and eating puppy food. For now, these two have to be fed with great care to prevent food from getting into their palates. Mack and Peter will be seeing a specialist soon to determine what future medical care they will need. Your support means unwanted pets like Mack and Peter receive the care they need in order to lead long happy healthy lives with their future adopters.
Thanks to generous supports their consultation has been paid for and is scheduled for Early next month. Mack and Peter have a loving home waiting for them as soon as they are available for adoption.
