Oso's Story
Oso is a furry Chow-Chow mix. He was found by Dr. Veronika outside of a sushi place in
Tijuana, limping across the street. He was in very bad shape and according to Dr Veronika,
wouldn't have made it longer than for 12 more hours. He had a severe case of mange and
several oozing wounds. He was so weak he could not even stand, and so thin, it looked
unreal. After a long bath, no more ticks and fleas were sucking his blood. Dr Veronika
prescribed treatment, which was administered everyday. After we had him for three days, it
became apparent he was responding to treatment well. In fact he was back to his playful self,
although still limping. As the weeks went by, though, and his wounds healed, huge water filled
lumps formed. Dr Veronika had to preform surgery and extract a foreign object, most likely a
foxtail that had traveled deep inside the previous wounds. He was also fixed and is now waiting
to make a trip to his new home in Dr Veronika's native Austria.
