Everyone, meet Creed! He is Dr. Jalen King’s dog and one of the dogs we use at the clinic as a blood donor, should a patient need a blood transfusion. Creed trusts his dad to hold him and actually does this without any sedation (plus it helps that he’s learned he gets all the treats afterwards 😂). This blood was used for a patient that had an autoimmune disorder causing his body to destroy his red blood cells and platelets. We’re hoping Creed’s blood will help with our patient’s severe anemia (low red blood cell count) until he can start making red blood cells on his own 🤞🏻
It’s Feel Good Friday! This sweet gal is Annabelle and she’s 12 years young. She came to us as a second opinion for a mass on her belly that previous vets had been monitoring. Recently, the mass started growing rapidly and became ulcerated. The owner knew something was very wrong but his local vets weren’t able to get him in for at least two weeks (COVID has caused vet clinics across the country to be swamped and understaffed!) The owners searched and drove over an hour to come see us to see what we could do. We knew time was of the essence and scheduled emergency surgery.
She is a whole new dog and now has the energy of a puppy again! The mass was sent off for evaluation. Hoping this girl gets some good news next week! She is such a lover! Let’s show Annabelle some love!
Mass Being Prepped For Surgery
“Hello! 9 month update on baby Rosemary. What can I say? She’s perfect. I’ll never be able to repay the King Vet Clinic for giving us this little baby. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. She’s an angel. You hear this all the time, but I’ve waited 20 years for a cocker for my own. It’s because of you and your staff I’ve been able to get this little baby.”Patrick O’Keelean
This is why we do what we do! We love witnessing how strong the human-animal bond can be, especially with a dog that has been given a second chance at life ❤️ Do you have a second chance pet that’s changed your life in a big way? If so, we’d love for you to leave us a comment or picture!
