One of our oldest residents, Salvador He passed away at midnight 24 March 2023 at Animal Wellness. He wasn't alone, the night staff were with him and tried to revive him. Salvador was a very old dog when we rescued him on March 9, 2022, just over a year ago. He had multiple issues when we rescued him- congestive heart failure, thyroid problems, he could hardly see or walk. He also had chronic bronchitis and bladder stones.
We gave him the best care we could and pretty much all of his issues resolved except his heart and bronchitis - which kept coming back.
He was very comfortable for the whole of the year. He had a comfy donut bed in the consultation room and went out for walks every day, which he thoroughly enjoyed. He really was a happy soul, but time marches on and in the end, his heart gave out.
We are always tremendously sad when we lose one of our dogs as we are so attached to them all. Sometimes all we can do is make the end of their lives comfortable and happy and let them know that they are loved.
It was a privilege to be able to get to know him, to spend time with him and to love him.
Run free sweet boy - we loved you so very much. You can read more a bout Salvador on his profile page here.
