Welcome to our Pet of the Month feature, where we showcase pets of all shapes and sizes from our doctors, staff and friends.
Meet Erin’s 2 year old toy fox terrier, Bug.
Bug came to Erin’s hospital in bad shape. She needed a blood transfusion and was on the verge of death. Unfortunately, Bug’s owners couldn’t afford the necessary treatment, so Erin volunteered to take her and treat her.
It was rough going at first. Bug was terrified and and showed her displeasure by trying to eat everything and everyone (including Erin). But with a lot of patience and a lot of love, she pulled through.
The terrified (and terrifying) terrier is long gone. Now, Bug has a great personality and is very enthusiastic about her new family and her activities – especially agility training. Seeing her learn and run her way through a course, you’d never imagine that she was once on death’s door. She truly has come a long way. Keep running, Bug – our Pet of the Month!
