Description:Other Pictures of Oscar (click to see larger version):
When Oscar started having problems walking his owner put him in the backyard, in 100+ degree temperatures, so he wouldn’t have accidents in the house. He was eventually taken to a shelter where we rescued him. The poor guy was infested with fleas and his fur was filthy & matted, but we found him to be the friendliest boy despite the neglect he had suffered. Oscar was immediately transported to Safari Veterinary Center in the Houston area to diagnose his mobility issues. He had an old back injury that was never treated, but fortunately he was deemed a candidate to receive stem cells and underwent treatment & was also given medication to dissolve the scar tissue affecting his mobility. Oscar stayed at Safari for 6 weeks of intensive physical therapy and recovered very nicely.
