Gordo – Medical Hold

4/27/21 – Please welcome Gordo. Gordo has been living outside for some time now, but his owner turned him over to us today. His bloodwork tells us he is anemic, but that is likely due to blood loss from being covered in fleas. He is malnourished and has a skin infection and dry eye. He needs to be neutered and he is heartworm positive. He also has an irregular heartbeat. Long term neglect has caused a lot of problems for Gordo, but we are committed to helping him feel better. First thing’s first—we’re going to love on him and try to get him to gain some weight. The cardiologist is going to see what’s going on with his heart. After that’s figured out, he’ll be neutered and then he’ll undergo heartworm treatment.
