Bernie's owners surrendered him completely covered in fleas and ticks. His rescue had to rush him to the ER because he was so weak and anemic. Bernie is so sweet, but obviously very scared. His PAC cell levels were a 6 and need to receive a blood transfusion and a plasma transfusion. However, he had a negative reaction to the blood transfusion and started urinating blood, which is due to his blood not clotting. The vets believed it might be tick related or that he may have gotten into rat poison. Luckily his PAC came back up to a 9 but still needs to be much higher. He will be getting another plasma transfusion shortly and they have been removing the ticks.
Dallas Dogs RRR is making sure Bernie is receiving the best medical attention possible. They want to get him strong and healthy, so they can help him find a furever home when he is ready.
Please consider making a donation towards Bernie's medical care. He also has a wishlist registry, so you can also send him a gift to brighten his day; he will be able to take all of his gifts with him when he gets adopted. You can help him with flea and tick treatments for his future health, which is also listed on his registry. Thank you in advance for your support!
