The BC SPCA is hoping you can help two puppies who, along with their five siblings, were part of an emergency intake after being found living in deplorable conditions.
“The puppies were discovered in a trailer running loose with no visible food or water,” says Jodi Dunlop, manager BC SPCA Vancouver. “When they arrived they were lethargic and clearly had been living in an unsanitary home.”
All seven puppies were taken to the vet, and they were all underweight and full of parasites, but two of them required emergency medical care. They were dehydrated, weren’t eating and anemic.
“The two puppies were given an ultrasound and blood work and received 48 hours emergency care on IV fluids,” says Dunlop. “One of the puppies requires repeat bloodwork.”
All of the puppies will need vaccines, and other veterinary treatments, including deworming, and spaying and neutering.
“These little pups are adorable,” says Dunlop. “Once they are all feeling better they are going to make great family members.”
