Muscade was found in a terrible state by SOS – Save Oroklini’s Stray Dogs, and was rushed to the vet for emergency care.
Due to neglected care, Muscade suffered from insulin deficiency for too long and developed Ketoacidosis, which is a chronic state of diabetes. Muscade is dependent on daily insulin injections for maintaining blood sugar balance.
Through a lovely foster mum, Muscade gained strength and became well enough to travel.
Sue Nuttall made the decision to give him a caring home with her other four dogs, and adopted him despite his chronic disease and the expenses that it entails.
This is the post from the day Sue collected him and brought him home…
“The newly arrived Muscade – having a pee and then gingerly finding his way back to me. It’s the only time he isn’t attached (sometimes literally) to my leg bless him, which makes taking photos very difficult 😊 Watching him find his way around the house is painful – he clearly can’t see well at all and a cataract operation will be a priority – at the same time as being neutered. We need to concentrate on getting weight on him first so he can stand the anaesthetic. This is going to be a long haul, but this boy has the most beautiful nature and such kind eyes and I am so glad S.O.S have allowed him to be adopted rather than give up on him.”
Muscade is now completely settled in with his new family and is well loved. His health is monitored daily and despite his diabetes and cataracts, he’s an energetic and fun loving dog.
