When Skippy came to Faithful Friends he could barely move. The vet said he would need hospice care and would never be able to use his back legs again. It was discovered that he was paralyzed, partially blind, and had an enlarged heart after viewing his x-rays. One of the staff veterinary technicians took Skippy home as a temporary foster – to monitor his progress and give him the care he needed. After a few days, he started moving but continued to drag his back legs. He began getting around a little easier using a donated doggie wheelchair and also started water therapy to strengthen his back legs.
Defying all odds, Skippy very quickly began to walk on his own and can now walk without his wheelchair or any assistance. He loves running around in circles! Recently, he found a permanent foster home and loves his new Mom and Dad and other four-legged siblings!
Your support of our Healing Touch Fund helped Skippy and will continue to help other pets just like him, get the urgent medical care they need to live happy healthy lives.
