Betty lived in rural Alabama where she suffered from sarcoptic mange, causing 90% hair loss over her entire body. Betty also suffered from a heavy parasite infestation, including whip, tape, and round worms as well as spirochaetes. Having only three legs added to her debilitated state. When Betty came to Hope Animal Clinic, she was nearly bald, terribly emaciated, and extremely timid but displayed a gentle nature. After months of treatment and loving care by our dedicated staff, Betty not only began to look and feel better, but she began to trust her care takers. Today, Betty is a beautiful, healthy Great Pyrenees who lives with a loving family.
Bella was a failure-to-thrive boxer puppy, struggling to make it when she came to Hope Animal Clinic. At 1.2 pounds, she was by far the smallest puppy in the otherwise healthy litter. The Hope doctors and staff began a rigorous medical and nutritional treatment to pull her through. After several blood transfusions, 24 hours IV fluids, syringe feeding every 2 hours by our dedicated staff, Bella began to thrive. Our doctors predicted that Bella would always be an undersized boxer due to her weak and small beginnings, but today she is an average-sized boxer weighing over 50 pounds.
