I wish I had better news for our dear BHRR’s Breen (named after a very special woman held so close to our heart and lives!)

Sadly, there is nothing that can be done for him. 🙁 He has bilateral HD(one Vet compared it to looking at ‘smashed femoral heads), a fractured right hip, bilateral blown cruciates and bilateral elbow dysplasia. 🙁 We have exhausted all efforts via three ortho specialists to try and see if we could give him any significant improvement to his quality of life. 🙁 🙁 With all of his medical conditions, he is a poor candidate for even CWW(Canine Water Wellness).

He gets acupuncture and massage and chiro treatments though. 🙂

AND, we are also managing his comfort with Ganapentin 400 mg’s BID and he is feeling really great on that along with Deramaxx 100 mg SID.

I wish he would eat more and he is such a delightful man. We are letting him run and play and be happy and enjoy life to the fullest. The boy that was in and out of a shelter as part of a cruelty/hoarding case for a year and had been returned three times, along with his siblings to his previous O., shall forever more ONLY have the best life has to offer.

He has been with us since October 7th – the last one sprung from the shelter – and, while, I know that we are on very borrowed time, I am glad that he has this very special time…………thank you again to the two groups that did not give up on him and advocated so passionately for his rescue and we remain so blessed to have been contacted to bring him into BHRR.
