Every dog is a good dog.
Hi all you Brianna fans! Time for an update.Brianna was seen at Timberlane Pet Hospital in Plant City this past on Tuesday, October 23rd for an initial exam, X-rays of her heart, additional parasite screening, some bloodwork and medication. Though she qualifies for the special heartworm treatment program at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, none of the services listed above were included in her treatment plan, so it was exceedingly important that we get this done. Her bill from Timberlane is $154.98. Timberlane has been kind enough to allow us to pay her bill next week but it must be paid in full before Halloween. I cannot stress enough how desperately we need your help with this; if we can get only 16 people to donate $10 each these services will be completely covered!
Brianna, stressed out in her dog run at Hillsborough County Animal Services.
Brianna’s X-rays showed some irregularities of her lungs but nothing atypical of a heartworm positive dog. We will not know until her treatments are completed what this will mean long-term. Also, she has now developed kennel cough so her treatment at the Humane Society has been delayed. Her first exam at the Humane Society won’t be until November 13th. In the meantime, she is on restricted exercise (in her cozy crate with an orthopedic dog bed and lots of dog cookies).
