Sweet 4 year old Hazel found herself wearing tag #239 in a puppy mill auction. This poor girl had badly stained paws, bloody ears, and gooey, gunky eyes. Our team members cleaned her eyes as much as they could during the auction but every time they revisited her they were back crusted shut.
We are treating Hazel for ear infections, giardia, secondary eye infections from neglected dry eye, and keratoconjunctivitis. Her physical exam also revealed loose knees, a large umbilical hernia, and severe dental disease. She received a much needed dental resulting in 7 extractions, along with her hernia repair and spay surgery. Her beautiful eyes have responded well thus far to our dry eye protocol, as you can see.
Hazel is now in her foster home in Fort Payne, Alabama resting, recovering, and soaking up years of TLC that she’s missed out on 💜
