Earl was finally in good hands! The vet noticed his cough right away. Earl went for scans and had bloodwork. The results weren’t good.
Poor Earl was estimated to be at least 10 years old. He was loaded with heartworms. Life on the streets without a proper diet or medical care cost him dearly. His prognosis wasn’t good.
The vet felt that treatment would not be successful so it was best just to keep him happy and comfortable. The woman who fed him for years decided to take him in. She would provide hospice care and make sure Earl lived out his days feeling safe and loved.
Remember, if you cannot care for your pet, for any reason, leaving them behind is NEVER an option! To see Earl’s rescue, click play on the video below.
