Our friends Kathy and Michael recently adopted an adorable puppy they named Muffin. She was 5 months old and a little sickly, but a LOVE. They took her to the vet who said she just had kennel cough and should soon be on the mend.
Well, just a couple of days after they adopted her, the county shelter where they got her was shut down because there were so many diseased animals. Upwards of 1000 cats and dogs had to be euthanized.Frantic and already in love with Muffin, they took her to the vet again and got a full work up. She had pneumonia, but that was all. After a round of antibiotics she perked up and started to put on weight.
Good thing Kathy and Michael went to the shelter when they did!
