Prayers Need for Emmett

I just recieved this photo from Angie and info about a precious Carin in need of our prayers.
This little guy needs all our help.
Lynell with Col. Potter is fostering him - just got him in tonight - she reports that he is pretty sick with HW's was turned into a non-kill shelter when his owner's could not afford the treatment for heartworms.
Lynell writes:

He is adorable...likes to be held.
We have named him Emmett.

He is tiny, about 12 pounds.

Has no upper incisors, just canines -rest of teeth are horrid, covered in black crap.
Skin problems, back is red and raw.
Ears look infected.
Bloody, diarrhea.....slimy and gross!

He is resting in his crate with the fan blowing on him, nibbling food, and drinking water with Rescue Remedy in it to keep him quiet.
This little fella has HW pretty bad, he labors to breath all the time.
The Vet will start the treatment on Tuesday and he will stay overnight and be picked up Wed if he does OK.

Keep prayers coming and candles lit for this guy.

Poor little guy! I hope he pulls through okay.
It sounds like the heartworm problem got him out of a bad situation! He certainly was not getting even adequate care!
His owners obviously neglected to care for him at all!
Be stong, little Emmett,
love,
Emmet, Sammy and Bonnie from Vermont

HW is Heartworms. They are awful but are so easily avoided with regular (ours get monthly) treatment. They are spread by mosquitos. The dog can either take meds orally or topically. Ours do topically since the oral made their tummies upset.

It is SO SAD....His heartworm condition so easily could have been prevented.
I feel so sorry for these helpless animals that must endure so much because a human allowed them to get in this condition. Thank goodness he is in Lynell's loving care.

There are to many things that we can't prevent to be doing nothing about the things we can prevent.
Prayers are on the way for this little guy.
