A second chance for a sick pup


The veterinarians and staff at West Kelowna Rose Valley Vet Hospital pulled out all the stops to help a very sick animal on behalf of the Penticton BCSPCA  recently.

A young puppy named Ruby, was bought in to the South Okanagan branch of the society with her siblings. She was suffering from severe dehydration, lethargy and an infestation of intestinal giardia parasites.  She was tended to right away, but  initially was unresponsive to treatment.

Dr. Oz and the team provided round-the-clock care for Ruby 'on the house' including expensive ultrasound scans, radiologist consultations, blood tests, IV fluids and medications.

On top of this, the staff took turns to stay with Ruby through the night for a number of days to ensure that she continued to improve.

Ruby is now recovered and is looking for a short term foster home to help socialize her prior to her spay and eventual adoption into her forever home.
