Dancer came to Harbor Rescue a year after her human mom passed away and her human dad developed Alzheimer's. She had hypothyroidism, skin yeast infection, staph infection, a cherry eye, and horrid teeth. Dancer lost 18 lbs after being placed on a good grain free diet, had cherry eye surgery and dental work done at a great vet in Oregon who only charged the volunteer $100, and was placed on thyroid medication, yeast medication, and antibiotics. Dancer suddenly started screaming in pain one morning and was rushed to the vet, who had to sedate her for x-rays. Dancer's spine was not correctly aligned and she was found to have a bone spur on the left side of her spine. So far, donations covered warm water therapy (at least $400 for the pool and certified therapist), 2 of 5 x-rays, and most of the veterinary bill. Barring an expensive surgery, we will try to continue with laser therapy, acupuncture, and chiropractic to keep her stable and out of pain. For the past 3 weeks, Dancer has been on "rest" (no exercise), steroids and pain medications to help her. We will continue to do what we do best, saving people, one dog at a time and one day at a time.
