Watson: Found barely alive with severe mange, heartworm, pressure sores and enlarged heart

Watson: Found barely alive with severe mange, heartworm, pressure sores and enlarged heart

 

Watson, 7-10 years old, was found emaciated laying by the bayou in the brutal heat of Houston. He picked a patch of grass in the shade to lie down. Surely, someone in the bustling neighborhood saw Watson, but, they continued to pass him by. One person spotted Watson, but she thought he was dead. Still, she put out a plea for help.

When the plea went out, everyone rushed to "catch" him. But, he was exhausted and heavily breathing. Rescuers were able to put a slip on him, changing his life forever. When found, Watson was completely confused.

Rescuers lifted Watson into the car and took him immediately to the emergency vet for care. It took a long time to get to this kind of condition and his medical needs and expenses will be quite expensive.

Watson has both types of skin infections - demodex and sarcoptic mange. Most of his teeth are worn down or gone which is typical of a dog chewing on a fence or chain. This is indicative of life at the end of a chain. He has pressure sores from laying on hard ground or concrete. Watson has heartworm disease and an enlarged heart. His lungs are in poor shape, yet he can still breath comfortably. His blood panel reveals a story of slight anemia. He will receive multiple medicated baths a week to help heal his skin.  He was loaded with internal parasites and battled some serious diarrhea in the first 24 hours.

Yes, there is much to take care of and treat. Eventually, he will need medicine for his arrhythmia, likely due to the heartworm disease, and ongoing medical care and treatment. But, Houston K-911 Rescue is committed to doing whatever it takes to save Watson. 

Watson's prognosis is guarded and Houston K-911 Rescue's goal is to provide him safety and comfort with their focus on quality of life. 

Watson and Houston K-911 Rescue need your help today. With each and every tee, hoodie or accessory purchased, you can help save Watson.
