This is Dexter, a 4-year-old Border Collie Mix.
Dexter's mom moved to town a few months ago, started a new job, and is starting a new beginning for her and Dexter.
"Dexter and I are always at work. We go for walks and hikes when possible. Dexter loves going for car rides and playing fetch when I go home for lunch," says Dexter’s mom.
Dexter started acting like he was sore, didn't like being touched, wasn't eating, had a fever, and was all around acting mopey, which was just not like the typical active puppy he is. His mom knew that Dexter needed to get to the vet, but she was very worried about money. She knew that she didn't have the funds for an emergency vet visit. So, she applied to Fur Kids Foundation for assistance, and we were happy to help.
At the vet clinic, Dexter went through a full work-up: he had X-rays, an extensive exam, and blood work. And everything came back normal! Knowing that Dexter wasn't feeling well, the vet sent him home with antibiotics and Dexter was scheduled to have another checkup. We’re happy to report that Dexter is feeling better!
Fur Kids Foundation always recommends that you contact or take your pet to the vet if they have been vomiting, or seem weak or have no energy. For health-related questions, always consult your veterinarian, as they have examined your pet, know the pet's health history, and can make the best recommendations for your pet.
