As soon as we met this sweet senior we knew we needed to help him immediately!
Jalapeno's mouth was filled with extremely rotten teeth on the verge of becoming a life threatening infection. He could barely eat his food and was super skinny all due to the neglect of his dental care. We can only assume that Jalapeno has been suffering like this for many months, maybe years.
We immediately rushed Jalapeno to the veterinarian where he had to have 17 teeth removed. This is an extreme dental and only done in cases where there is no other choice but is necessary to save his life from a potentially fatal blood infection.
Just when we thought Jalapeno was over the worst of it, he got sick with pneumonia and needed hospitalization and urgent care.
He is receiving expert veterinary care and lots of TLC at his foster home. We have no doubt that he will recover from all of this, but it is a long slow healing process.
Wags & Walks has given Jalapeno a new lease on life. Please help Jalapeno get well and a second chance at living the life he always deserved!
