Snoopy - Suffering Severe Burns



WARNING - GRAPHIC PHOTOS

What happened to Snoopy? That's the question that is on the minds of all of us at Associated Humane/Popcorn Park. So many questions need answering, but we're afraid that we'll never know exactly what happened to this poor boy. The one thing that we're absolutely sure of is that Snoopy's life changed for the better the moment he walked through our doors.

This 7 year old dachshund was brought in by his owner who was very distraught over the condition of Snoopy, but very unclear as to what caused poor Snoopy to be in this horrifying condition. Snoopy has deep, open wounds all over his back, and some on his sides and tail as well. Snoopy was heavily infested with fleas, but even the worst of flea allergies would not cause the type of deep wounds that Snoopy has. From what we could surmise from Snoopy's owner, someone was in the home, uninvited, and that person may have inflicted the wounds upon Snoopy. The case is under investigation but regardless of how it happened, the important thing is that he get medical treatment and relief from the horrid pain that he has been enduring for what appears to be a very long time.

Snoopy was signed over to us and then went directly to our veterinarian, Dr. Baris, who carefully examined this sad and painful pup. Once Snoopy was sedated and made comfortable, Dr. Baris was able to get a closer look at these terrible wounds and in her educated opinion, determined that the wounds could be from either caustic chemicals, boiling water, or hot oil being thrown on Snoopy. The wounds are not bites from another animal but are deep flesh wounds that could only be caused by serious burns or chemicals.

While under sedation, Snoopy's wounds were completely cleaned with surgical wash and then laser therapy was administered, to begin healing the wounds. Snoopy will be on pain medications to help to keep him as comfortable as possible, and a variety of medications to treat the infections that he has. He will also be receiving laser therapy to treat his wounds several times per week. After a few weeks of medical treatment, we will know more about how well these wounds will heal and if Snoopy will need surgery in the future.

Once again, we are asking for your help. Snoopy will be under medical treatment for quite a while, which can become costly. We are relying again on our Res-Q Fund and the generosity of our supporters. Please contribute to our Res-Q Fund, or text HumaneHelp to 41444.

Snoopy has a long, tough road to recovery ahead of him. We will do everything in our power to keep him as comfortable as possible as he heals, but hope that you will all keep our new friend Snoopy in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you for your support, and we will update again soon.

Check out Snoopy's first update and his progress so far.
