Melo's story
Melo - A39645496
Intake Type: Found stray 9/12.
Medical Observation: Ambulatory x4, but abnormal gait in the hind. Possible patella lux (unable to appreciate) vs. hip dysplasia vs. other. Does not appear painful and walks readily. Mostly blind adult/young senior, dental disease, fleas. Recommend dental care, senior bloodwork/UA and to get into known environment. Would also benefit from further optho exam/ IOPs to rule in/out glaucoma, but does not appear painful at this time.
Personality: Meet Melo! This sweet girl was found as a stray. When we visited her, she was playing with her kong toy in her kennel. When she heard us open her kennel door, she came over to say hi and allowed us to pet her all over. She is a very sweet girl who has trouble seeing. We are hoping she finds someone who can help her get acquainted to her new home. Can you save Melo?
