I have some not so good news for dear Soldier. He was groomed today and checked over again by the vet and he is not gaining weight. The vet shaved him because his hair was so matted and there are lumps all over his body. At this point it is unknown if they are cancerous or not. We were also recommended a different brand of senior dog food that would encourage him to eat more, so we are going to try that and see how it goes.
The poor thing must have been a beautiful dog in his day. I will send some pictures in a few days of him now that he is shaved. That way he doesn’t have the freshly shaven look to him. hehe.
Thank you so much for your sponsorship! It has allowed Soldier to live the rest of his life in peace and comfort.
Thank you again for everything!
