Metts is infected with maggots and fighting for his life.
This poor, sweet boy has clearly endured much more than any living creature should ever have to. We received a desperate plea for help from our friends in Orangeburg, SC. Metts was found helplessly dragging himself on the side of the road with some very apparent and severe injuries. Just watching this poor baby drag himself around was heartbreaking. Now he needs your help.
Upon arrival, rescuers could smell his rotting flesh from the numerous wounds that had been left untreated and had become extremely infected. Not only was this poor baby enduring severe infections, maggots had begun to find their way into his open wounds... Yes... MAGGOTS!
Currently, (until he is stable enough for surgery) Metts has no control of three of his legs and may require a possible amputation of one of his legs. I wish I was done with Metts' list of ailments, but I'm not... He will also require surgery for a hernia. His entire stomach is extremely enflamed in addition to a protruding rib cage because he is so emaciated and even anemic!
At this point in time, we know Metts will absolutely need AT LEAST two surgeries, antibiotics, continuous bandage changes and lots of TLC... Please consider donating to IMAGINE Pet Rescue’s newest addition, Metts so that we can continue to give him the best possible medical attention.
