HPAN Sponsors Little Phoenix with $300, As He “Rises from the Ashes”
On Saturday, October 7, 2017, a small badly injured dog found in a field was brought to the Roane County Animal Shelter. Phoenix, an approximately two year old, neutered male Papillion mix, had numerous lacerations. He required immediate vet care and was rushed to Governor John Sevier Vet Clinic (because they were the only one available on Saturday afternoon) where he received basic treatment until surgery could be performed the following week. They cleaned the wounds, bandaged, took X-rays, gave fluids for dehydration, gave a shot of antibiotic, and sent home in foster care with pain meds and Clavamox. The following week he was taken to Volunteer Vet Hospital in Knoxville for surgery. We sponsored $300 of the total bill from both clinics. Phoenix is expected to make a full recovery.
