The vet got his blood work back and is concerned with his anemia. We were informed to find blood donors in anticipation for a blood transfusion tomorrow. MAMS board of directors who also run Gold Coast Greyhound Adoptions... Judy Shamp and Donna Galante hand picked two very special greyhounds (who are actually their blood donors) to be on call if needed for tomorrow's transfusion. Mackie and Sloan are ready if needed! On a positive note: Champ was taken off his IV pain medication and transferred over to oral pain meds. He seems to be responding more favorable to the oral meds. Champ's medical foster Kim took him outside today for some fresh air. He walked in the grass and actually kept his lunch down today. All good things. Will update as soon as we know what tomorrow holds for us all.
In the name of rescue....Julie & the MAMS family
