Bugatti came to IDR+ from downstate IL when his owner was jailed for drugs. Within a day of arriving, it was apparent that something was very wrong. Bugatti was vomiting, urinating blood, and unable to stand. He immediately went to the vet for blood and urine tests, a chest and abdominal x-ray, and urgent stabilization. We already knew he was heartworm-positive, but that wasn’t the cause for these scary symptoms. His blood work was terrible–his kidneys and liver were in horrible shape. The vet ran a lepto test, which was positive, so he began the aggressive antibiotics to fight this dangerous bacteria. Bugatti was transferred to another vet for long-term hospitalization in isolation, since lepto is contagious, and he is responding well to treatment. He still has some time before is he healthy enough to be released and eventually treated for heartworm, so his vet bills are piling up with all of the specialized care. Bugatti is 5 years old, and he still has a lot of life to live. In his condition, he has not seen other dogs , and he has no history with kids, but he did pass the cat test! We will get to know him better once he is released from the hospital and moved into a foster home. Please consider donating toward the vet bills that are saving his life. He still has a long road ahead before he’s ready for adoption.
