|Ke-ola made it through the night thanks to |
Dr. Moscony, Steve and the great staff at Crossroads.
Dr. Moscony and his staff were incredible! They admitted him immediately and began IV fluids and antibiotics. They were kind enough to work on stabilizing him and keeping him safe until morning so we could get him to Pet Hospital in Orange. They worked with us to provide life sustaining treatment and at the same time stay within a budget to help our rescue. We LOVE Crossroads! They saved our baby girl River when we first adopted her and now they have saved Ke-ola's life as well. A huge thank you from our pack to Crossroads Animal Emergency!
Kadante and I got home around 4am and tried to get a couple hours of sleep before taking Ke-ola from Crossroads to Pet Hospital later that morning. When we arrived at Crossroads we were amazed to see that Ke-ola was now able to walk and wag his poor battered tail at everyone he saw. We were over joyed! Here is a clip Kadante took of Ke-ola while we were on our way from Crossroads to Pet Hospital. He has the light back in his eyes.

Thank you Dr. Ross and Staff

The backstory of our night...our trip to glory“The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.” ~ Molière
I hadn't slept much the night before as I sat with Ke-ola watching him throughout the night. I was looking forward to getting some sleep but Ke-ola's health took a turn for the worse and needed professional attention. Kadante hadn't slept much either as he was just getting home as we were preparing the car for Ke-ola. We were on the road by 1am and on our way to Urgent Care. We had one mishap after another trying to get Ke-ola the care he so urgently needed. Our GPS sent us to the wrong "Animal Hospital" and it was closed. Once resetting the information and receiving the correct directions we found not one but two road blocks and could find no way around them. We decided to call Crossroads and ask for help. They were wonderful with us. They kept us on the phone while they looked for alternate routes on their computer. We finally found our way to them but what should have been a 10 minute trip had more than tripled. We were now more concerned than ever for Ke-ola's life.

It was quite an adventure but in the end I received the ultimate reward, Ke-ola was alive and on his road to health and my son took me out for breakfast to celebrate. In my book, it really doesn't get much better than that.
Wishing you and your pack Peace, today and everyday. Thank you for visiting.
