Hope the dog continues to improve despite setbacks
An update posted Monday evening on the Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter Facebook page, said Hope was playing with a tennis ball and eating on Friday and Saturday. Sunday evening she became lethargic and spiked a fever. After receiving fluids and antibiotics, they determined Hope does not have a UTI or pneumonia.
Her fever was gone by Monday morning and vets believe she has irritable bowl syndrome which they say is treatable. It also may be a result of the lack of food. She has maintained her 9 pounds or so and she is eating every 3 to 4 hours according to the shelter.
