At the East Valley Animal Shelter, a five-year-old sweet and very friendly dog managed to “stray” from his home. Not discounting that many dogs manage to jump fences, sneak out of their homes or run away from their yards, it is truly puzzling how Chester, who appears to be partially paralyzed in his hind legs and has trouble walking, could be wandering the streets.
Chester’s medical notes include the following information:
1) Nearly complete paralysis of hind limbs, but some limited use when stimulated, appears chronic based on level of muscle wasting – R/O severe IVDD vs trauma vs neoplasia vs other
2) Moderate dental disease
Chester is on the Orange List, and there’s a urgent plea for someone to get him to a private veterinarian. If you can help, or you would like additional information and CHESTER’s records, contact:
