Ke-ola not feeling the greatest today. He had us very concerned.
I put him in his crate and watched him fall asleep. His body needs rest to heal. I hoped that with sleep he would regain some strength. I checked on him every 30 minutes for the next couple of ours and by noon rather than getting better he looked worse. I opened the crate and again he didn't move to get out. His breathing was still heavy and he would barely open his eyes when I pet him.
I called Pet Hospital in Orange, explained his symptoms and was told to bring him in to be seen right away. Because he is my foster dog and I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue is responsible for him, I needed to contact Corrie from I.C.A.R.E. to let her know what was happening. I feared not being able to contact the correct people at I.C.A.R.E. as it is Sunday and thought they'd be busy. Once again I.C.A.R.E. was amazing. Within minutes of my message Gabby had contacted me to see how she could help. I explained the situation and she told me to go take care of Ke-ola and she would contact Corrie. Before I could get out the door Corrie called me to offer her assistance and set everything up for us at the Pet Hospital.

Ke-ola will also need to have digestive enzymes added to his food as we found that even feeding him 3 times a day, 3 times the normal amount, he has lost weight. Ke-ola has a followup visit next Sunday. I hope he'll have some weight-gain and his chest is less congested by then.
Wishing you and your pack Peace, today and everyday. Thank you for visiting.
