Stray Dog With Disfigured Face Is Making A Beautiful Recovery After Being Rescued

Unfortunately , not all bird-dogs in this world have the wonderful chance to have a warm bunked, a luscious banquet, and a caring pedigree. Some good pooches end up straying the streets aimlessly, looking for scraps to feed upon, just grasping to life. More fortuitous ones end up in shelters where they at least have someone to look after them and feed them. And while shelters often end up finding forever homes for their occupant doggies, the ones that are usually adopted are mostly cute, fluffy puppies or cute pooches with impressing characteristics.

But despite what a pup may look like, they all deserve an opportunity at life. Specially those who haven’t been favored in life. One of these doggies is Phoenix, a salvage puppy from Oklahoma who has a very distinct face.

According to Skiatook Paws& Claws Animal Rescue, this doggie was located strolling the street of Collinsville looking for food for some time before rescue workers found him. It seems like Phoenix was once in someone’s care, but they failed the poor dog and vacated him.

This dog roam the street of Collinsville was acquired and rescued in November

The dog was rescued off wall street and Family Animal Medicine–Owasso, OK took care of the pooch. The formation soon rendered updated information about the pooch’s condition:
“We are investigating all possible causes of Phoenix’s condition and moving lab work to identify causes of his disease of the skin. He is being bathed regularly and is on drugs to improve his skin health and supply solace, ” they reported.

While at first the veterinarians were uncertain if Phe’s disfiguration was caused by abuse or illness

While it seems like Phoenix has get through some horrific mistreat, the veterinarians plowing him aren’t extremely quick to hop to such resolutions:
“We were provided evidence from a previous Good Samaritan who has photos of a progression of Phoenix’s facial deterioration. It is possible there may be a medical cancer making his disfiguration. It is important that we do not automatically assume malevolent ordinances. Swine without homes and proper care, without shelter, meat, and sea face so many obstacles; specially if they have an underlying medical question, ” the professionals said.

After running a number of tests, they found out it’s an auto-immune illness

The most recent “pupdate” on Phoenix’s journey was posted merely 4 weeks ago 😛 TAGEND

“Phoenix had the privilege of traveling to Kansas, during which he met with two terrific Specialty Veterinarians, Dr. Karen Trainor and Dr. David Senter. These unbelievably unique veterinarians specialize exclusively in diseases of the skin.
Phoenix’s journey to Kansas actually started when we first rescued him. Back in November, in an attempt to solve Phe’s skin mystery, his veterinary faculty here in Owasso at FAM took biopsies of his diseased scalp and send them to Dr. Trainor. Dr. Trainor is a veterinary pathologist who focuses on skin disease. Oh boy, what a bright brain. What Dr. Trainor mostly does is to look at Phe’s skin biopsy at the microscopic stage and tell us how his surface is behaving.
Next, Phe’s adventure took him to Veterinary Allergy and Dermatology clinic in Overland Park, Kansas. There he satisfied Dr. David Senter, a veterinary dermatologist. He also concentrates his veterinary knowledge on cases with skin diseases.
With both Dr. Trainor and Dr. Senter’s insight and the work done by Family Animal Medicine veterinarians, Phe is improving every day. He has gained weight. His skin is mending. He plays and barks. He chases pellets and play video games tug-o-war. He even sleeps on his own hound couch.
His cheesy, sharky grin will ever remain. The muscles on his head will never return. UV illuminated/ sunshine generates his surface to flare-up, so clothes and sunblock are a must. But don’t worry, Phoenix’s spirit is STRONG!
Phoenix has a rare auto-immune disease, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus( SLE ). There are no specific measures to identify SLE. This is a disease that is diagnosed after all other cankers are ruled out. Because it is an auto-immune disease, his own body attempts itself, reaching medication sometimes difficult and tricky. But thank goodness for all the veterinaries( here in Owasso and Kansas too) “were having” his sicknes managed.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement. Phe would have never stirred his indomitable jaunt without you.”
