Quinn is an 8 year-old boy who was struck by a car in Carlsbad,
NM and was found wandering and in distress when picked up by Animal
Control and taken to the shelter. He had to spend another 2 weeks
in the shelter waiting for the rescue who had orginally tagged
him to pick him up. When this failed to happen, SDKAR was contacted
and Quinn was quickly picked up and brought to Albuquerque, NM
to a vet to get treatment. He’d sustained a large avulsion
to his right front leg and a severly dislocated left hip with
a fractured pelvis. He was also 30 pounds under weight. Under
good medical care Dr. Skains preformed an FHO to give him a good
chance of a normal life. Quinn is now in a foster home recovering
and getting his physical therapy aimed at restoring his ambulatory
ability. He will always be a special needs gentleman due to his
injuries and age. He is getting hydro-treadmill therapy and range
of motion exercises. Everyone who has met Quinn has adored him
and he loves his foster dad. To call Quinn velcro would be a massive
understatement. He gets along with everyone and even visits the
kitties at the vet clinic. He has figured out how to open doors
Special Needs if any: Quinn
will need a few more months of therapy before he is available
for adoption. Optimal diet to address arthritis and discomfort
associated with his injuries along with pain management to include
but not limited to carprofen, gabapentin, glucosamine/chondroitin,
Geographic Areas: Colorado
and any surrounding state if a home visit can be done.
