For the most part, all golden retriever are friendly and eager to please, and certainly loving—even when they are hurt.
Allow us to introduce Isa, a dynamic 1-year-old golden. The other day, Isa's mom came home to find that Isa had managed to cut her leg so severely that it was exposing the bone. Isa was rushed to Red Hills Veterinary Hospital where she was bandaged up, but they kept her overnight for observation. The culprit, according to Dr. Val, was potentially a rouge nail sticking out of a piece of wood.
Isa's mom is a single mother, who works full-time to support her family. She tries her best to save money, but it's often hard when you're on your own. Fur Kids Foundation was able to help Isa's mom with these unexpected bills.
We're happy to report that Isa is making a full recovery—she seems back to her spunky, goofy self. However, she's not liking the cone of shame.
