MAGGIEmAE1Maggie Mae

 

Rescued by: Boston Terrier Rescue Oklahoma

UPDATED:  JAN 20, 2017


**On medical hold**

Our Maggie Mae is being fostered at Dogville and her wonderful foster mom, Delana, tells her story....


“She has gone from cautious and reserved to excited and happy after her surgery. She was nearly blind from her diabetic cataracts and she could no longer see to play with her toys. Now she greets everyone and loves going outside.

Maggie is Diabetic
Maggie will have to be monitored very carefully--tested at least twice a day and checked on one or more times a day. She is not a typical diabetic dog that just gets insulin twice daily. She's more like a human diabetic. She needs to be tested before eating and after given insulin. She needs to be monitored in case her blood sugar drops suddenly. Maggie is on a special diabetic diet.

She was nearly blind from diabetic cataracts

Maggie just had surgery to correct her cataracts that she had due to the diabetes.
She hates wearing her cone, but that should only be for another week to 10 days if she continues to heal.

Maggie is a total delight!
She is happy and wiggly and loves her toys. She has a lot of life left and a lot of love to give for the right family.

Maggie’s back story
Maggie Mae came to us because a family was in crisis and needed help.
Maggie was eight years old and experienced a sudden weight loss along with drinking a lot of water and having accidents in the house. Her owner took her to the veterinarian and there they discovered that she was diabetic. Her blood sugar on admission was in the 600’s! They immediately started working with her to try to get her weight loss and diet under control. After three days in the hospital and keeping her owner informed, they learned that the owner was in the hospital. Unfortunately, her owner’s condition meant that he would have to move to a long-term care facility and no longer be able to care for Maggie.
His adult daughter called Boston Terrier Rescue of Oklahoma for help. Typically, rescues are unable to take in dogs with complicated medical conditions, but I agreed to do what I could to get Maggie’s diabetes under control so she could be adopted by a loving family with some experience in this area.

We need YOUR help. Please consider a donation, either monthly or a one-time gift.
Maggie is a diabetic dog.  Her insulin is $22 per month, supplies (test strips, lancets and syringes) are about $60-$70 per month. She will need a glucose curve done 2-3 times per year. Estimated costs for this --$80-130 I'm guessing.

Her medical bills will run approximate $230 to $250 a month, due to all syringes, insulin, test strips, special food, and extra vet visits.

 Our goal for Maggie is to provide a six month medical fund, to help the rescue.  We are asking you to help us raise $1,380.  Thank you for helping us support Boston Terrier Rescue of Oklahoma (BTRO) and most of all, Maggie.

Meet Joy!


UPDATED JAN 20, 2017


**On medical hold**

Rescued by: Boston Terrier Rescue Oklahoma

 

This precious six-year-old girl we are calling Joy, because she has a lot of joy coming to her that she so desperately deserves! She's been used as a puppy mill momma with little to no vet care.

She went to the vet first thing. She was in pretty sad shape. She has been treated for keratoconjunctivitis (KCS), glaucoma, heartworms, and possibly a pregnancy. Her bloodwork showed she was anemic with an infection.

 

 The KCS is chronic dry eye and has caused secondary glaucoma. Her eyes are painful and bulging and she may have some limited vision. We are hoping that she responds to the eye drops with positive results. She's also a high heartworm positive. She has a long road to recovery ahead of her. Joy has chronic dry eye in both eyes that was untreated until we got her into rescue, as far as Boston Terrier Rescue of Oklahoma can tell.

 

 Delana her foster mom has shared with us the following.

“We had to wait awhile to spay her to make sure she wasn't pregnant. She had two ultrasounds before we spayed to make sure she wasn't pregnant.

She has been treated with a prescription eye drop along with an eye lubricant that appear to be working. She goes to the ophthalmologist next week to confirm this and get an idea of her prognosis. She can still see, but is pretty testy around other dogs. She has some scars on her legs.”



Joy’s back story.
“She was a puppy mill dog. Her human daddy got sick. There was no way he could keep her. Joy was posted on a For Sale group and we talked him into letting her come to rescue."



We need YOUR help. Please consider a donation, either monthly or a one-time gift.
JOY has KCS a chronic dry eye. Eye drops/lube are about $50-$55 per month and she will need them the rest of her life. Her eyes require lubrication three times per day.


Her medical bills will run approximate $100 to $150 a month, due to eye drops and extra vet visits.

Our goal for Joy, is to provide a 6-month fund to help the rescue. We are asking you to help us raise $700 for her medical fund.  Thank you for helping us help, Boston Terrier Rescue of Oklahoma (BTRO) and most of all, Joy.

"Help a Boston Medical Fund"

 

This is a program we are very proud of. Here is how it works.

 

A Boston Terrier Rescue organization contacts BOSTON TERRIER NETWORK (BTN) requesting BTN to help an adopted Boston Terrier and its owner, in a great time of need.

 

BTN wil verify the following as a matter of policy:

   *  The rescue is on our list of valid rescue organizations.

   * The Boston Terrier dog was a rescued by the requesting organization.

   * The Boston Terrier has been adopted by an individual.

    * By filing out an request for help, the current owner of the Boston Terrier agrees to share information necessary for BTN to verify medical status and if circumstances will fit program guidelines.

 

Once approved, arrangements will be made to provide a grant directly to the medical organization providing the service.

 

Our only means  to help will be with the funding provided by those who believe in supporting this program. 

 

The more funds are donated the more Bostons we will be able to assist with medical care that will make it possible for a dog to remain in it's forever home.


We believe we have found an area that where our efforts will provide dramatic help and a great impact on the Bostons and their human companions.

As you can imagine this will require solid funding from our friends for this to be successfully.


How can you help?  Friends even $5.00 donations add up. Although we would rejoice for someone to donate thousands of dollars, and maybe someday we will be blessed with such large donations We want you to know individual small donations are valued.

In the meantime we need to start now to build this fund... Even if we only can help by providing $100 $200 for each dog, that is one more dog that just might be able to remain with his human companions.

 

We all know how important that is for not only the dog but the humans.  Imagine if we grow to where we could sustain helping provide eye operations, or insulin or heart-worm treatment or even simple x-rays and blood tests.  What a relief it would be...  Knowing that the owners could then afford to keep their dog and not surrender it out of love knowing that a foster home with the rescue would somehow find a way to provide for the medical care!

 Rescued by: Boston Terrier Rescue Oklahoma


***Medical Hold***


Princess is seven years old and just lovely girl. She's well behaved and is a bit of chunk, so she will need to be kept on a diet. She LOVES to eat!

Princess had to be surrendered with her buddy, Tiki, when her human daddy got sick and couldn't care for them anymore.
Princess gets along well with other dogs and is a calm girl. Tiki will bully her over her food sometimes and she just takes it like a champ.

Delana her foster mom has shared with us the following.

She came in with a massive ear infection, which is being treated.   She's rather cute with her droopy ear and one eye, don't ya think??

 

Princess’s back story.

Princess developed Cushing's after she was surrendered because her human daddy was sick and dying. The vet found it when her lens in her only remaining eye sub-luxated.

She has Cushing's, high blood pressure and her eye has to be monitored for glaucoma. She saw the ophthalmologist this past Monday and was put on two more eye drops to keep the pressure down. Her Vetoryl is about $80 a month, eye drops are about $100 a month and she will need frequent visits to check her cortisol levels and eye pressure. She has had two ACTH Stim tests to check her cortisol levels. She is now normal with being on the Vetoryl. We will keep her eye as long as we can without it causing pain. The ophthalmologist said that there is a slim possibility that she could get her vision back, but right now she sees nothing.

 

BTN asked about how well she was adapting to the borrowed halo.

How's she doing with that thing? Does she need one of her own?

Heather who is Princess's foster mom tells us.

"Pretty well. When It bumps she redirects. It doesn't keep her out of everything but it is already helping. Ok she is doing really well with it and it's not in her way just bouncing her off stuff she would have originally run into.

Halos are so helpful for some of the dogs. We understand that Princes is using a  borrowed halo  that needs to be returned. Perhaps someone will have a halo they no longer need and donate it to her. We will put up her mesurements just in case thier is one available.

PRINCESS has Cushing's, high blood pressure and her eye has to be monitored for glaucoma.    Her medical bills will run approximate $180  to $150  a month, due to eye concerns and extra vet visits.

Rescued by: Boston Terrier Rescue Oklahoma

NEW   JAN 20, 2017


**On medical hold**

She was an owner surrender and lived in a pet store.

The story that we  (Boston Terrier Rescue Oklahoma)  learned, was that she was bounced around quite a bit.

Molly Mae has been diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure (CHF). She is on medications for that has to eat low sodium food needs dental work has cataracts in both of her eyes.

 Molly Mae has lost about 3 pounds of fluid since she has been with her foster mom. She has to be on a special low sodium diet. She's now playing with the others and seems to be much happier.

 

 

Alice is Molly Mae's foster mom: "Molly comes to us as an owner surrender. She's been bounced around from place to place and finally made her way to us.
She has congestive heart failure and is in a mid to late stage of it. Her heart is enlarged to the size of what a big dog's heart should be.
She has lost about 3 pounds of fluid since she has been on her Vetmedin. She is also on Lasix and salmon oil.
Her blood work wasn't great, but surprisingly her kidney and liver levels looked great. The vet estimated her to be 10-13 years old.
Her teeth are in horrible shape, but she's too high of a risk to anesthetize right now for a dental.
She has cataracts in both eyes and a corneal ulcer on one. She's kind of a mess right now, but we will sure do what we have to do to get her comfortable. Prayers for this girl would be appreciated right now!"

BTN was curious so we asked.  "What does the salmon oil do?"


Alice  Molly's foster mom told us.  "The salmon oil is good for the heart. The vet recommended her be on it. It's the omega 3 fatty acids in it that help."

Molly Mae requires The Vetmedin is about $130 for 50 pills, which should last over a month. She is also on Lasix and salmon oil. She has to be on a special low sodium diet. Between her food and her salmon oil, it's about $60-$70 a month. We won't know what the dental will cost until she has it. They charged extra for every tooth that has to be pulled and her teeth are gross.

 Our goal for Molly Mae , is to provide a 6-month fund to help the rescue. We are asking you to help us raise $1200 for her medical fund.   Thank you for helping us help, Boston Terrier Rescue of Oklahoma (BTRO) and most of all, Molly Mae.
