They wanted to euthanize Baloo, but rescuers did not listen

Posted by hendrickandco 11/12/2018 0 Comment(s) Animal Stories,

Baloo was found despondent in the middle of the road in rural Kentucky and covered in feces and infection. The Arrow Fund was asked if they could help. The Arrow Fund took on this horrible case even though their rescue was already at capacity. They knew if they didn’t, he would be euthanized at the county shelter.

The Arrow Fund immediately rushed Baloo to the Emergency Vet in critical condition. Rescuers and doctors did everything they could to stabilize this very injured pup. The staff spent hours cutting away all of the matted and feces filled fur.

Doctors initially found that he was heavily parasitized and he was only able to walk a few steps with assistance. Baloo’s entire body was reddened with inflammation and a horrid smell of infection. There was pus coming from his eyes, ears and entire skin surface. Baloo was diagnosed with severe Gastroenteritis, Pruritus and his hind limbs were swollen with pain from cellulitis. Baloo is positive for Erlichia and is also anemic at HCT 20. This list is long but rescuers and doctors were certain they can save his life. 

After 4 weeks in the hospital, Baloo started to improve each day! He started to sit up on his own and eventually, he gained the strength to walk on his own. 

His medical transformation was accelerated. But, his physical transformation was nothing short of amazing. 

Within just 7 weeks time, Baloo looks like a completely different dog. He was once near death. Now, he lives in his foster home, awaiting his forever family. 

Baloo is the reason why we created Hendrick & Co. and the reason why we support The Arrow Fund. In the condition in which he was found, Baloo, in all likelihood, would have been euthanized by now, if it were not for The Arrow Fund and the Hendrick & Co. community.
