I found a little 11-pound chihuahua male, I named Maestro, staggering in a parking lot in Red Lake yesterday, and found he was injured with 2 wounds on right torso and one on the left. Cause unknown: dog attack, stabbed, or shot?
He was taken to local vet and they gave long-acting antibiotic shot and he is on rimadyl for pain management. The vet thinks the attack happened about 3 days ago.
Today maestro is eating and drinking. He is walking around and much better today.
The good news is that Dr. Vickie of Act V has stepped up to take this little fellow. He will hopefully leave the shelter with a few other animals on October 11th or 12th with a transport by Barbie Olson.
Dr. Vickie is also taking Ronnie, a pup with a possible broken leg.
Act V has been a great partner for the injured Red Lake animals; they take many injured and sick animals that come in at times other than the clinics.
