I picked up BHRR' Stafford today from the OHS and, we headed straight over to KAH for the beginning of his rehab journey. 

I had him into KAH within 2 hours and, it was over an hour long.  His HWT and BW is back from Thursday and, I want to discuss with the Vet his globulin level. His HWT is negative.  He has yet to give me a fecal to bring in that works with my schedule but he is being de-wormed, is on Revolution, I have his special shampoo, Clavamox for his ear infections plus URI(that we hope does not deteriorate to pneumonia  ) and, Burrows for his ears also. 

His heart is a beautiful thumbs up and, his Vet at KAH says that his nostril size is great even if he is all smushed face. If his nostril size was small, this poor dog would have had a very limited quality of life. 

He will see a specialist for that throat/larynx and, see about surgery to assist him with breathing better. 

The Vet also said that though his front teeth are awful, his side and back teeth are actually in good condition. 
AND, he needs to lose those twinkles…. 

We are hoping that when he is in surgery for his breathing – we will see what the specialist says for, we have no idea if he had any surgeries in his past and, that nothing more may be possible for him OR, even if it was botched past job OR, if her had anything done in the past – that we can also do those teeth and twinkles…most likely the dental shall be a separate surgery. 

I do not want him going under any more than necessary…..

His ear cytology done on both ears showed debris, yeast, some rods and rare cocci. The OHS had him on meds prior to us getting him and, so, his ear infections are greatly improved.

Wipes picked up for those folds and between his poor raw toes…he has seborrhea and, dermatitis. 
He has a toe on his right foot that is not normal and, terribly long nails. 

His weight was a fair 20.6 kgs( 45.32 pounds). He could afford a bit more weight being a wee thin yet, do not want a chunky monkey…

The OHS did a such a wonderful job with him and, I am forever indebted in being entrusted with this gorgeous boy! 

So, a hot mess for sure and, happy, affectionate and, such a love!!!
