When Honey Bun was brought to us in April, she was emaciated and had significant hair loss. She weighed only 26 pounds. The owner said that a friend had given Honey Bun to him but she kept losing weight, and he couldn’t afford any more veterinarian care.
Honey Bun clearly needed extra tender loving care. One of our amazing fosters took Honey Bun home right away and started working her magic to nurse Honey Bun back to health. After two months, Honey Bun was up to 42 pounds, looked great, and was an active, thriving pup. Tests revealed that she has a pancreatic enzyme deficiency and will need the replacement powder forever, but that’s a minor price to pay for this precious girl’s life.
This is a wonderful recovery story for Honey Bun but also speaks to the great importance of our foster program and the incredible love our fosters give to our neediest animals, as well as our wonderful Shelter Medicine team, who treat the animals who come to us with life-threatening health issues.
And the sweetest part of all: Honey Bun was adopted by a young couple whose goal is to spoil her rotten!
