Sammy – Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Sammy presented to AAE due to respiratory distress and vomiting. Sammy had been diagnosed as a diabetic by his referring veterinarian but his response to the initial insulin treatment was poor. After a thorough evaluation it was determined that continued hyperglycemia had led to a condition called ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis occurs when an excessive production of ketone bodies, metabolic products usually derived from fatty acids within the liver, are excreted in the urine. This process often occurs in uncontrolled diabetic mellitus patients and can cause life-threatening illnesses. After several days of intensive critical care, Sammy recovered and is currently doing well on an alternative insulin more suitable for him. Sammy is a wonderful cat and a great patient. We are always happy to see him when his owner drops by for a visit!

Rocky – Catch Of The Summer

Rocky was seen for a possible foreign body when the owner saw a fishing line hanging from his mouth. The owner cut away excess fishing line, leaving a small portion and presented Rocky to AAE. Radiographs (x-rays) confirmed a treble hook was in Rocky’s stomach. Using an endoscope, the hook was removed without the need for major surgery and Rocky made a full recovery. An endoscope is a special device used for various procedures and can be passed through the mouth, esophagus and into the stomach allowing visualization of stomach contents. It can be used to remove foreign objects or collect tissue samples for further evaluation.

Boogie is a mixed breed dog that was presented as an abandoned stray to Augusta Animal Emergency after being hit by a car. He suffered multiple fractures to his left hind leg, several pelvic fractures, and a fracture of his right foreleg. When the good Samaritan who rescued him could not afford the necessary care Boogie needed, a staff technician came forward with the finances and dedication to help Boogie through his recovery. Multiple surgical pins were placed to secure all the fractures and their fragments in his rear leg and a long-term splint was necessary for his foreleg to heal. Boogie has since developed into a healthy and active dog.

Izzy - Digital Radiography

Izzy came to us late one night after a Good Samaritan picked her up off the road injured. Izzy had no immediately identifiable owner, no collar identification and no microchip. It was immediately clear that Izzy had severe pelvic fractures and abdominal bleeding. The presenting agent had no funds to care for her injuries. She was obviously in a lot of pain and very scared.

We gave her pain medication and stabilized her condition overnight. After a brief call out via Facebook, Izzy’s owner was found. Unfortunately, her owner was unable to care for her injuries either. Things were looking grim for Izzy’s future, but through extreme diligence and passionate dedication a rescue group took responsibility for Izzy’s care. AAE was able to donate the time, love, and energy to get Izzy pelvic surgery accomplished. She is currently in rehab every day and gaining strength. The final chapter has yet to be written on this success story, but Izzy is much too nice of a dog not to receive a wonderful life. God speed Izzy, we love you!
