What a wonderful brave boy. This lightly spotted 2 year old was picked up as a stray and taken to the Arlington Animal Shelter. He was sick from day one, kennel cough and upper respiratory and just as he was getting over that he lost his desire for food. A quick trip to emergency vet clinic let us know that we were in for a fight. Joe had congestive heart disease causing fluid on his lungs. Unfortunately the heartworms had been there so long that it was very dangerous to give the treatment but there was no choice. Joe fought and hung in there but his heart, lung and liver were too damaged. He went to the Rainbow Bridge Wednesday, July 13.
A loving boy that was loved and gave unconditional love for the few short weeks that we had him. He will be greatly missed.
