My Name is: Remi, 5 years old

My Story: Four months is a long time to be in a shelter with an infected wound from what looked like fragments of shrapnel on an x-ray, but that is what our Remi endured until he came into our care. The wound, located under his jaw, is being treated with a lengthy course of antibiotics. Our vet in consultation with a surgeon is hoping we can avoid surgery in this sensitive area. After almost two months of antibiotic treatment his deep wound is looking better. Remi seems quite comfortable and patiently waiting for the resolution of the wound in his foster home.
