VALENTINO (known as “Rudy” to his close, personal friends) has had a tough time of it. It’s a good thing that he landed with Lhasa Happy Homes. Who knew he would have to go thru this? Upon rescue from the shelter, we learned that Rudy had a large open wound on his left front elbow, with a severe bacterial infection. After several months of care, with recurring infections requiring regular veterinary care, it was decided to do an aggressive skin graft. Rudy has been a real trooper throughout the entire process. It appears that the graft is taking, but it is still “young” and Valentino is visiting the vet on a regular basis to monitor the healing. The vet is very happy about his improvements and he is now wearing a brace to help the healing. Valentino is a swooner and he will make you fall in love with him as everyone in the hospital has. He has been adopted to a wonderful home, but his bills are still outstanding so your support is appreciated 🙂
