Remy is SAFE!
I think the shelter is crazy...
Remy does NOT have a skin condition. He has one laceration on his face... which leads to a very confusing story. But yet, they deferred his neuter surgery....
My vet did a skin scraping and a few parasite tests (mites, etc.). All that came up negative and there are no visible signs of any skin problem.
Let's start from the beginning:
12/19/07- Remy was impounded at the SLA shelter and appeared healthy.
12/20/07- Remy had bloody diarrhea, but tested negative for Parvo.
12/27/07- Remy was adopted!
3/22/08- Remy was impounded at the shelter... again. Condition: "normal".
4/25/08- Remy has a small wound on his right cheek. The wound was cleaned and dressed, etc.
4/26/08- Remy had surgery on his wound. He has 2 stiches on his cheek, was put on antibiotics, etc.
4/30/08- Remy's incision was healing well. Electonic device was found in his stool.
5/7/08- We rescued Remy!
Soooo, the wound/laceration on his face happened AT THE SHELTER. But yet, they said he was in ISO the whole time he was there (the second time he was impounded). That being said.... I do not think it was a bite from another dog, which makes me really wonder what happened.
What the shelter told us, and what I read on his paperwork is TOTALLY different.
Anyways, Remy is VERY happy to be out and has a lot of energy! He doesn't seem to have a problem with cats. He was in the "play" mode when we met ours. I didn't let him get too close though.
Our vet had a hard time examining Remy because he was sooo hyper and just wanted to lick everybody's face!
The stitches on his face are going to be removed either today or tomorrow.
Remy is now in boarding and will go into a foster home early next week!
