'Romeo' Update from HSNI

Share this post

Veterinary expenses are mounting as Region residents help a rescued pit bull recuperate.  The Humane Society of Northwest Indiana reports that "Romeo’s wounds look horrible," but he is doing better and is responding to antibiotics and is still on pain medication.

"His wounds have been cleaned but in the process of cleaning the wounds the vet found many more puncture wounds. One wound is deep within his sinus cavity which is a concern, but is treatable. Part of the ear may have to be removed because of the intense infection. He also has many older healed wounds on his legs.

"His wounds must be treated and cleaned every day which is a painful process, but through it all Romeo is loving and wags his tail. Dr. Sheena Dadkah from the Munster Animal Hospital is his attending veterinarian commented that “Romeo’s whole weight is his big heart.” And that he is “so loving and sweet!”  “Everyone at the Munster Animal Hospital has fallen in love with him”

Romeo has many weeks of care ahead of him. We would like to thank everyone who has donated so far to “Romeo’s Rescue Fund”.
