Meet Curly - an older but incredibly loving Cocker Spaniel that was dumped at the Brooklyn NY shelter by his family. This poor guy is obviously suffering from glaucoma which causes intense pressure and pain in the eyes. On being checked by the vet it was also determined that his ears are completely calcified from severe neglect and he requires a dual Total Ear Canal Ablation (TECA).
Both glaucoma and this ear condition are excruciatingly painful and he is suffering with both simultaneously. But remains loving through it all.

These six Boston Terrier Puppy Mill Dogs were rescued from an Indiana Puppy Mill. Their medical bills are piling up and are huge! We have already put one female in Emergency Surgery due to a herniated uterus that was found to have a dead pup inside.
These six dogs have suffered severe neglect and abuse. The pictures are gut wrenching. The medical problems are severe, overwhelming and costly.

Here is a little more information about each of them.
Chia could be a handsome little boy. Unfortunately he is suffering from numerous medical problems effecting his skin, hair, eyes, teeth and gums. He also has an irritated scrotum and mild interdigital irritation of one back paw. Recommended treatement for Chai includes oral antibiotics, dental cleaning, neuter and an Ophthalmologist consult. But his dental and eye problems will probably require significant medical treatment once completely diagnosed.
Chamomile is a little girl with dry skin, mild hyperemia to her face, and moderate dental plaque. Not so bad - right. But she also has what we thought was a huge mammary tumor. Actually it is a inguinal hernia that her uterus has fallen through. The uterus appears to have a dead puppy in it, and she's in the beginning stages of pyometra. It is the vet's opinion we need to spay her and repair everything immediately. She goes into surgery tomorrow. Additional medical recomendations include oral antibiotics, anti inflammatory, fine needle aspirate with cytology, spay, dental, mass removal with or without histopath.
Meet 'Earl Gray.' Somehow this name fits him. Earl Gray has dry and unkempt hair with mild flaking, alopecia and crusting. He also has mild facial hyperemia and other skin issues. He also siffers from severe dental plaque and gum recession causing severe oral odor, not to mention likely pain! His additional problems include mild irritation to the scrotum, prostate enlargement and mild anal enlargement due to chronic irritation. Recommended treatments include neutering, oral antibiotics and dental cleaning.
Ginger suffers from a dry and unkempt coat, multiple areas of focal alopecia, mild hyperemia to her face, and an eyelid tumor on the right lower lid. Like most dogs that have not had proper care she also suffers from dental plaque. But the most overwhelming and obvious condition for this poor little girl is the presence of multiple pendulous mammary teats, some enlarged and firm (mastitis or mammary carcinoma or chronic irritation). You think maybe she's been over-bred? Recommend treatments include oral antibiotics and anti-inflammatory, possible fine needle aspirate of mammary chain, spay.
Ginsing is a beautiful little girl for one who has had no love and tremendous suffering in life. She suffers from dry skin, mild hyperemia to her face and multiple "ring like" areas of alopecia. She also has thickening of both front pads (likely achronic irritation) and a skin tag on the right thigh. She has a mild mucus discharge of the right eye and moderate to severe plaque with moderate gum recession to molars and premolars. Her jaw is unbalanced and tilted down and to right. Pendulous teats and multiple teats enlarged and firm (mastitis, carcinoma or irritation). Fungal culture started 1/22/12. Recommended treatments include oral antibiotics, anti inflammatory, fine needle aspirate of mammary chain, spay and ringworm treatment.
Thai is a pretty good lookin fella! And right now his problems don't seem as serious as some of the other recent rescuees! But he still needs out help. He does have dry skin, alopecia on his rump, a mild irritation on his back right paw and moderate dental plaque. Most of his teeth are ground down and all four canines have pulp exposure. OMG - that's painful! And like the other boys has a mild cutaneous irritation to the scrotum. Recommended treatments include oral antibiotics, dental and neuter.
These precious dogs will be in medical care to correct the horrible neglect their owner inflected on them. The medical care is just the beginning for these wonderful dogs. They still have to learn how to trust people again and rehabilitate into being family dogs.
