Wrigley, likely a pointer-mix of some blend, came to Edmond Animal Welfare in bad shape. She had clearly been nursing some puppies in her recent past, but mastitis (blocked milk ducts which became infected) had set in and she was in considerable pain from the swelling and infection. Upon further examination by the vets, she was also diagnosed with pyometra (a potentially deadly uterine infection). As if those weren’t enough to be dealing with, poor Wrigley was heartworm positive, had severe hook and round worms, was anemic, and emaciated. She was hospitalized for five days while the vets treated the mastitis – which required repeated lancing of the milk ducts to drain the infected material. Wrigley was placed on 3 weeks’ worth of antibiotics and underwent spay surgery. On April 2 & 3, Wrigley had her heartworm treatments. She is being fostered and is slowly gaining weight.
Wrigley’s disposition throughout all of this has been amazing! She’s absolutely the sweetest and friendliest dog you can imagine and she gets along great with people, other dogs and cats. When she’s all healed up, she’ll be the perfect dog for someone!
