While in a Kansas shelter waiting to be rescued, five-year-old Sandler was exposed to kennel cough which quickly progressed to pneumonia in his foster home shortly after he arrived with us. Feverish, coughing, uninterested in eating and lethargic, he was seen in the ER and then admitted to the hospital for supportive care including IV antibiotics, fluids and supplemental oxygen. We were all relieved when a few days later after his stay in intensive care, he was back on his paws and recuperating with his foster family.

Our veterinary partner for Sandler’s veterinary care is Alameda East Veterinary Hospital.
