DUKE is a 10 year old boy who recently busted out of the Riverside Animal Shelter. His intakes notes are as follows:
A1611952 is currently at our Riverside main campus and flagged for medical and coded status yellow. Medical notes indicate that this dog is overall geriatric at 10 years old. We treating this dog for a double ear infection. Multiple masses, dental tartar, underweight and possibly arthritic. Lab work is highly recommended for senior screening. Vet staff noted dog was friendly when examining. Thank you!
3/3/2021 Update from Greg/Foster: He was seen for his ears and for his rabies shot yesterday. They would not administer a rabies vaccine because his labs came back showing high/ elevated kidney values as well as very low platelets. Ears were badly infected but improving. He’s doing much better than when he came here initially but I think we have a way to go before he is ready for adoption.
