Four-year-old Rudy was found in rural Arkansas with a gunshot wound to his leg. A shelter partner called us for help with this good-natured chocolate Lab, and we soon had him seen by a local vet for the immediate wound treatment he needed. Before coming to us in Colorado, all our out-of-state Labs are tested for heartworms. Unfortunately, Rudy tested positive.
Rudy will undergo a three-month heart worm treatment– including medication, special injections, hospitalization and strict rest. In addition to his heartworms, the gunshot wound to his leg is being treated for a challenging and painful bone infection. He is being a very good patient as he recovers with his medical foster mom Rudy’s care is provided by Alameda East Veterinary Hospital
