Teddy has settled in and made himself comfortable in his foster home.
Since his surgery one month ago at the emergency clinic, Teddy's urine has been crystal free but we are checking regularly to make sure it stays that way. Teddy came into rescue with a few lumps and bumps and it was determined that he should have a few biopsies. It was a good thing the vet decided to check them out; as it turns out, Teddy had a mass cell tumor. He had surgery again last week and had three lumps as well as the tumor removed. Some of the lumps have been sent away for testing and we should have the results soon.
Teddy loves to eat. He has allergies so he has to eat special food for that and his crystals but he loves fresh fruit and veggies added into his kibble: his very favourites are pumpkin, blueberries, and watermelon. He also loves chewing bones and they are helping keep his teeth clean. Teddy loves to sleep in the big bed and snuggles in close every night. Teddy has also made some new friends. He hasn't had a lot experience with this and he needs a bit of help, but he is getting the hang of it and is adored by everyone he meets -- two- and four-legged.
All Teddy has to do now is relax, recover, and get strong because he hopes to go to the Niagara Pugoween later this month. He is looking forward to meeting more of his kind and introducing himself to all of his fans.
Please meet Teddy, a charming and chatty pug. He is a happy-go-lucky gentleman and likes to be included in whatever is going on. Teddy is a storyteller and wants everyone to know all about it. He is social and trying his hardest to convince his foster dog/brother that he is his best friend. They were caught snuggling on the couch together so it is going pretty well. Teddy has met other dogs on his walks and at the vet's office and is very happy to make their acquaintance.
Teddy had emergency surgery at intake to Pugalug and had to spend a few days at the emergency clinic. He was brought to his foster home by a generous volunteer and is fitting in well. He has a long history of harsh allergies which are being monitored closely. Teddy will be getting his stitches out soon and will have a few other medical needs attended to. He will also be getting a bubble bath!!
We will update you once he has had his check up.
