This Old Dog Is Lucky - He Met Amber
This is my daughter, Dr. Amber, holding one of her broken dogs. This little guy was running down the road when Amber saw him. As usual, she stops of any loose dogs and checks for id. This one not only had no id, but his jaw is broken.
He cannot close it and Amber has to feed it soft food so he can lick it up. He is so sweet, but they are having a hard time saving him. He is old, has bad teeth that has the bone infected and they don't know how long the jaw has been like this. She and another vet are trying to clear up the infection so they can build a muzzle type brace for his jaw - tight enough to hold it, but loose enough so he can eat and drink.
This is the type of stuff she does. She has no office to practice, though she does have an operating room in an industrial building. She goes all over North Georgia doing low cost spay and neutering for the county shelters.
When she goes into a shelter, she goes to the death room and chooses dogs that are adoptable, fixes them and sends them to NY on my dog trips.
She runs a nonprofit organization and can use donations. If you have the urge, go to leftoverpets.org and give a little love (the dollar kind - she gets the emotional kind from me, Judy and her boyfriend, Bob).
Thanks, and keep your fingers crossed for the old guy.
