Senior Setter Wessex

Wessex Recovery Page on Facebook

Wessex is a senior tri-color and white English Setter that recently came into our program with the help of Steve from Pilots N Paws. He has suffered some neglect, including being newly diagnosed with three tick-borne diseases.
Upon arrival into our program, he suffered from two painful ear infections, and he is going to need a dental that will include removing a cracked back molar. The terrible effect of undiagnosed and untreated Lyme disease has also caused a heart murmur, but we are hopeful with antibiotics the condition will stabilize.
My best guess is that he is around eight years old and is in a great foster home where he is getting daily antibiotics and ear meds. Despite his health problems, he is as sweet as can be. He also loves being indoors and able to lay on soft dog beds. The cough he came in with also seems to be better as well as his runny eyes and nose.
Initial blood work was over $500, and we know his dental surgery will also be expensive. Anytime we bring in a senior dog, we can expect high bills. We would love your support to help this sweet fella get the care he needs while also looking for the perfect forever home.
