Now read Becki’s encouraging update !
On 7/20/2017, The Arrow Fund rescued this severely emaciated senior Min-Pin. Knowing TAF was at full capacity, Greg Streif and I stepped up to foster-to-adopt. Diagnosed with severe emaciation, diabetes, pancreatitis, blindness from cataracts, parasites and fleas, it has been a scary ride for this litte girl. She spent 20 days at BluePearl with around-the-clock care and monitoring.
Thanks to The Arrow Fund, Rebecca Eaves and BluePearl Veterinary Partners, Sage is making good progress. Only 5 lbs at intake, she weighed in today at her 1st check -up at 7.01 lbs! Due to the weight gain, her internist was able to increase insulin from 3 units to 4 units 2 x day. We have already seen a postive difference in her activity level, with the added unit of insulin.
Emotionally, Sage knows she is home. Being blind and weak, hasn’t stopped her from making friends with the rest of the tribe! Her best buddy, other than Greg, is Frannie, our deaf and partially blind dog.
Please take a moment and donate to The Arrow Fund. TAF provides dogs like Sage with an opportunity to survive abuse and neglect, heal physically and emotionally and thrive! If you don’t have extra funds, then please step up to be a foster. Greg and I can attest caring for and loving a neglected and abused dog to wholeness is a priceless gift!
Update – Sage
5 pound Min Pin who came to us severely emaciated , blind , and suffering from unmonitored diabetes. This girl was so neglected…
Sage has been a very difficult case to regulate and still is at Blue Pearl . Being so emaciated and getting the correct dose of insulin has been challenging. She finally hit 6 pounds and we are thrilled , but as you can see , she is still underweight . Sage will also revisit eye specialist Dr. Erica Tolar soon . Her eyes will be evaluated to see if any vision can be recovered through surgery . At the present time she is not a good surgical candidate due to her weight .
Her fosters Greg and Becky Streif are ready to take this girl home as soon as we can safely release her ! Sage is a complete sweetheart and loves to be held .
Sage is still receiving very small meals and they are closely monitoring her diabetes. As she increases food her insulin levels change . After being hydrated and getting much needed medical care and receiving lots of love ❤️ , you can see Sage is feeling so much better .
Sage is undergoing lots of testing today . She will see cardiologist Dr.Bell today , due to a heart murmur.
Sage is severely emaciated, and has had uncontrolled diabetes for a while . She is blind from diabetic cataracts and will see Dr. Tolar next week . She must be fed very small meals several times a day to make sure her body processes the food correctly. This girl is only half the body weight she should be . She only weighs 5 pounds !
Sage just wants to be held and feel safe .
This sweet girl did not deserve such neglect …
