Barney, the 4 lbs. poodle mix that we pulled from Terrebonne Parish Animal Shelter, has been in medical boarding at Azalea Lakes Veterinary Clinic in Baton Rouge for the past week to evaluate his heart murmur, treat the blood in his bowels and urine, and determine the best route of treatment for his heart condition, as well as to kill the heart worms. The veterinarian has had Barney on blood pressure medication for his heart, as well as Doxycycline to prepare him for heart worm treatment. However, because of his size, the vet and our rescue agree, that we need to bring in a Cardiologist Veterinarian to determine exactly what his heart murmur is caused by (hole in heart, congenital birth defect, or heart worm damage, etc.) so that we can choose the fastest, yet safest method of treating his heart worms. We need to raise $350.00 ASAP to pay the Cardiologist on Friday afternoon when he has his appointment. We have faith that those who have been following Barney’s rescue story will want to help him. Please, if you can donate today, please do so! Any amount helps! Donations through WePay using the YouCaring fundraiser link are automatically deposited into Acadiana Humane Society’s main account on the next business day so we can pay the vet faster! https://www.youcaring.com/acadianahumanesociety-721729 If you prefer, we do also have a Paypal donation button here on our website. You can also call in a credit/debit card donation directly to Azalea Lakes Veterinary Clinic by calling 225-755-3838 and asking them to apply your credit/debit card donation on the account of Acadiana Humane Society for Barney’s Cardiologist bill. The Cardiologist will be going to Azalea Lake’s Vet Clinic to see Barney for his examination and tests.
