Meet Wilson!

Wilson arrived in rescue this afternoon in very bad condition. He was running a high fever, and had a large, open, infected wound on his leg. Upon arrival our wonderful vet staff started to work on him, assessed his physical condition and started running tests on him. His bandages were changed and will be changed every day until the wound starts to heal. He is on antibiotics and two types of pain meds. Wilson was initially so weak he had to be carried outside to relieve himself. We are finding that with very little activity his fever goes down to a much lower level. With any activity, it raises up but not as high as when he first came in. He's a very sweet boy and currently our volunteers are taking shifts to go in and sit with him during the day and just be with him. He is so happy to see them.
