A BUSY DAY AT THE SENIOR SANCTUARY

0

My beloved Leah got a nasty aggressive tumor on her inside of her leg. In a short time it grew and opened up.

Our veterinarian examined her and despite her older age we decided to have it removed. Its uncomfortable for her now and it will probably be painful for her in a while. While she is sedated they will check her with ultra sound.
Leah got a very strong heart and a fabulous personality! 

Our Senior three legged Angelo got a horrible infection in his nose. Antibiotic and painkiller for him.

The lady ChaCha had to go to the veterinarian too, for a lot of different blood tests. I know something is not correct inside of her. Also, our veterinarian told us she need to lose weight. 56kg!!!

We don’t know how we are going to do that!!! She is on 2 small cups of dry food every day, and she got her own personal trainer (walker) Hm! Maybe I need to follow them during their walks to see if they really are walking and not by a fast food restaurant!

CONTESSA GETS ULTRA SOUND AND X RAY

0

We had to examine Contessa more thoroughly before making any further decisions for her eye surgery. Dr Lungo (at Dr. Damiani clinic) greeted me and they had hired in Dott. Fortunata Farina to make an ultrasound. Dott. Fortuna Farina was a lovely lady, with a good attitude having great charisma.

Ultra sound showed big mammary glands tumors , and abnormal glands. Also something small on her lung. So we are scheduling a surgery Wednesday, and hiring in eye specialist Alexandria and one anesthesiologist to remove the eye. The rest we will have to deal with later.

Thank you beautiful team, Dott. Farina, Dr. Lungo and Rebecca (veterinary technician) for helping and working hard for those who doesn’t have an owner. That’s Amore. You are true caring veterinarians.

LAST WEDNESDAY SHELTER WORK

0

AWL went out to the shetler and as always was greeted by a lot of happy dogs but one was curled up on his pallet and I could tell right away that something was wrong. I called the vet Mariagrazia and she went in and looked at him. His belly was swollen and breathing hard, she thought he had the flu. Rosco would be transported later to the clinic, the vet couldn’t take him in her car. I carried Rosco into my SUV so he could be warm and comfortable in a blanket. Keep your paws crossed for his fast recovery.

Our sweet guy! If only he could get a wonderful home. This big guy doesn’t have any teeth so his tounge is always falling out. He is a big Amore guy!

When we came to build frames for new pens, a donation had been made. 10 doghouses that AWL Eric, Todd, Keegan and Brandy put together (unraping by Tracey and Mia) I hope the dogs won’t chew the wood, they were gorgous “gucci” dog houses.

Other dogs were not doing so well, blood tests are being done. Hoping for fast pawfect recovery; its not nice to be sick in a shelter especially when it is cold and rainy, and a terrible storm hit Campania where trees fell and a big hailstorm went through.

Tracey, Keegan, Brandy, Todd, Eric, Jackie thank you so much for helping out on your free time, I know that we soon will be able to see and feel the progress in our hard work. “Rome wasn’t built in one day” Amore to you all.

Eric Needs Your Help

0

Lin is an English lady whom has fed Eric (picture alone) for over four years now. Every evening at 19.00 she shows up at the parking lot where Eric and two other dog friends of his are.
This parking lot is in a “crazy corner” and the traffic is hectic and “crazy” I don’t think I would survive one week there, but Eric has.
Eric needs to be examine by an veterinarian! He is getting old. Lin doesn’t think he will survive another winter, and one eye is getting grey.
Me, and Animals Without Limits dream is to open up a sanctuary for older dogs, so they can have a quiet and healthy ending of their long rough life. With people like Lin, it has made it a little bit easier down the road for Eric, together with his long term friends.
This is heart warming Amore! We need your help with donations, and it will become warmer Amore!
