Subject: 01-06-18 A1531162 Urgent plea for injured dog
 Available:

This sweet girl is pretty amazing.  When she came in she was dragging her legs behind her.  She has a dog bed in her kennel and she is able to get her back legs over the side of the dog bed.  I was waiting to make sure that she could urinate and deficate before deciding to plea her.  She is just so friendly and loving and even though she is in pain she still smiles and wants affection.
 Thanks,
 Brenda
 Hind end paralysis, very sweet and friendly

dog came in as an injured stray.  She is down in both rear legs.  Her rear feet knuckle but she does not right them.  She is not moving her tail.  She is low heartworm positive and friendly.  She was noted to have defecated today but has not been seen to urinate
a:  possible hit by car with hindend paralysis
p:  outreach to decide on plea and will need to monitor for urination/defecation and manually express her bladder if she is not urinating.  Will take her one day at a time to evaluate the extent of her paralysis.


1/6/18 defecated and urinated in kennel this morning. Em
