Abandoned Boxer Needs Medical Help

Posted on September 4, 2012 at 8:54 am by admin No Comment

Boscoe, an abandoned boxer, was rescued by long time rescuer Trent G. His previous owners were keeping him outside all the time and in the picture there was a distinct limp. Trent took this sweet boxer and tests results confirmed his belief that he has valley fever. His titer is 1:64. On a scale of 1-8 with 8 being most severe, sweet Boscoe is a 6. His infection has settled in his rear ankle bone and that is why he limped.

Trent has started him on fluconazole and he will need to stay on it for at least 1 year depending on follow up blood test. Valley Fever meds have produced great results and Boscoe is expected to make a full recovery. He is also being treated for bilateral ear infections and a laceration on his right ear flap. According to Trent, he is a big goofy happy boy and is enjoying his new indoor bed.

All donations will go towards his medical care. He will need to get healthy first and then will get neutered and then find his loving forever home. To help towards Bosco’s funds, please click on the pay pal link to your right.
