This month we had a medical challenge--Maxi. Enrique notified FHSTJ that this dog was in need of urgent medical attention. (For more information on Enrique, see the blog below dated April 23rd entitled: “The Neighborhood Rescue Efforts of Enrique and Beatriz”.) FHSTJ took Maxi to one of the Tijuana veterinarians participating in a program to offer low cost care and spay and neuter for people and rescuers with very limited resources who are referred by FHSTJ.
Maxi was relieved of his pain and a conservative form of treatment was started to see how he responds.
He was groomed and treated for internal and external parasites as well as the stones that had imbeded in his feet.
While the prognosis to save his eye is guarded, for the time being, he will be comfortable and cared for. In the worse case scenario, even with one eye and free of any unforeseen complications, he will be able to live contentedly with the love and care of his rescuers.
