Hi folks,
Here is the latest news on Sandy the 13yr old golden in Fla from ECGR.
WLR
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Good news Sandy is doing better. She did have a contagious bacterial infection and was having difficulty breathing as well as being very lethargic. She went to the vet on Monday and was given antibiotics. She is breathing better now and moving around a lot more. She will be out of quarantine today and foster mom said she looks a lot better and has been getting plenty of human attention. The vet felt certain that the tumors are benign. She is scheduled to have her pre-anethesia bloodwork done and provided everything is ok she will be having the tumors removed next week. Hoping to get some pictures soon. I will keep you posted. Thanks so much for your donation.

Here is the 2/7 update on Sandy.
-------------------------------------
Hi guys, I just talked to Sandy's foster mom. I was mistaken about the date of the surgery, it will be this coming Wednesday as long as pre-anethesia bloodwark is good it should be a simple procedure. She has been going out to enjoy the sunshine and is just a sweet old gal that follows you around and loves to cuddle. I reminded her to get some pics for us. We are however going to have to find someone else to foster her soon after the surgery. This foster has several dogs, this was short term so I will have to get to work on that which will be hard given that we have a serious shortage of foster homes and Sandy will need a laid back quiet environment. I will keep you posted.

BTW, thanks again! Thanks to the donations we were able to have Sandy treated. Lately we have had several seemingly healthy dogs that ended up having to have costly surgeries that are draining our resources. Without your help Sandy may have had to just be made comfortable.

AND the 2/12 update.
-------------------------
Hi guys,

Sandy was not able to have the tumors removed Thursday. The bloodwork showed elevated liver enzymes. The vet said it may have been caused by the antibiotics for the respiratory infection. He prescribed medication and will test again in 30 days. Meanwhile Sandys foster mom said she is feeling good, tail wagging all the time.

You are a gem to keep us posted on Sandy. Praying the elevated liver enzymes are from the antibiotics, but the main thing is I'm sure Sandy is finally being treated with love and kindness and getting to enjoy life.
Thank you so much for donating to her cause and Thank You to everyone!!
Hope a new Foster or adopter steps up for her soon!!!!
