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.  Ovi has mild kidney disease that can be regulated with proper diet and consistent vet care. He will remain part of the SCGRR family, now having been adopted by his foster parents who have a great deal of experience in his condition and know the type of diet and veterinary care he will need for the rest of his life.
