Fortunately, the vet made the right decision for this adorable dog
A few days before Christmas, an owner takes his dog to the vet clinic to put her down. Tracy -a four-year-old boxer dog- was used in Abusive breeding programs.
Worried as his dog is no longer able to have puppies, the man wanted to know if she is still able. Otherwise, he wanted to euthanize the poor soul.
“He asked the vet if she could have more puppies, and if she couldn’t, the only thing he would pay for would be Euthanasia“.
Knowing that the dog needed help and care, the brave veterinarian, who stepped up to save her, contacted an association so that it could take care of the poor Tracy who was so thin that she was barely able to stand up on her feet.
The breeder reported that it had been about 7-10 days since Tracy had last eaten.
A starving dog
After several examinations and no improvement in her condition. They made the decision to transfer her to an animal hospital that had 24×7 care and observation. Tracy has not progressed.
AABR consulted with her vet made the decision to have a feeding tube inserted because Tracy is not eating on her own, the dog began to catch her hair and could then be entrusted to a host family to finally receive all the love she deserves.
Remember Tracy, the Amish puppy mill momma who after the breeder found out she couldn’t have puppies said he would pay no more care than to euthanize this poor soul, and the brave veterinarian who stepped up to save her? Your outpouring of thoughts and prayers were INCREDIBLE, and we have an update. On arrival at the previous vet hospital in Lancaster County, The Amish famer had reported that it had been about 7-10 days since Tracy had last eaten. The vet thought it may have been Pancreatitis, and began treatment. After days of no improvement, we made the decision to transfer her to an animal hospital that had 24×7 care and observation. Since moving her on Tuesday evening, Tracy has not progressed. AABR consulted with her current vet, and made the decision to have a feeding tube inserted because Tracy is not eating on her own. She is still incredibly weak, cannot stand without support and still seems so defeated and lethargic. It breaks our hearts to think that someone could ever neglect an animal to this degree and feel no remorse, but that’s exactly how these Amish breeders operate. How can she be thrown away so easily? Once he heard she could no longer make him money, she became a disposable asset.While we are unsure of her prognosis at this time, Tracy is stable but not doing well. Thus far, the talented team at the veterinary emergency hospital that has been caring for her have been unable to pinpoint the source of her issues, and so we’ve decided to advance her to the University of Pennsylvania animal hospital for further care and testing.
