Ovi came into rescue September 4th, underweight and lethargic after being passed through approximately four homes. Upon a visit to the vet, blood work indicated positive results for ehrlichia and anaplasmosis, both tick borne diseases. In addition, his urine and kidneys showed high protein levels. Ovi started antibiotics and was placed on a special diet to support his renal system. An ultrasound revealed mild renal damage.
Update November 6: Over two months in foster care, now Ovi is finally stable to be neutered and have much needed dental work (two teeth had to be extracted). He is now in the home stretch of his recovery.
