Special Needs: Cookie will need extensive dental work, ongoing skin medications (oral and topical), non-allergenic diet, and ongoing blood work.
Cookie came in with serious skin infections- fungal, bacterial, and nutrition related. She also had already lost many of her teeth and those remaining are infected and will need to be extracted once we address her skin and nutritional needs. Despite all this, Cookie is a very sweet and feisty little senior. She is vocal when she wants food or loving, lets us know when she needs to go use the restroom, and has never once complained during her regular recovery routine, which includes medicated baths, oral meds, ear drops, and other things along those lines that would have many dogs crying or biting. Cookie just keeps on wagging, appreciating loving care and a cozy environment. Her skin and coat are already showing improvement, and she's showing more energy thanks to good nutrition, but it's going to take time before we can move on to the next step and go for major dental procedures. Then we will have the luxury of addressing any other less critical health needs and evaluating Cookie's fitness for adoption. In the meanwhile, she is a pleasure to foster. Any help we can get with Cookies substantial veterinary expenses would be appreciated. She's a cute and loving little one and she deserves to feel as healthy as she does happy.
