Danni began to thrive once medical intervention took place. This little nugget surely would have died without RUFF’s immediate actions.This puppy was in trouble. She was severely dehydrated, loaded with intestinal parasites, suffering from diarrhea and losing weight quickly. But Milburn and Kreem recognized a fighting spirit in this puppy. And so, Danni was named after an Indian Princess Warrior and the battle began. She was given round the clock care that included probiotic feedings, nutritional supplements, subcutaneous fluids and medication to fight off the parasites. Sleep has no friend in Kreem. She is known for winning battles and she beats sleep every time. Once again, Kreem’s lack of sleep and determination proved positive. Danni’s weight went from 2.7lbs to 4.5lbs in just five days. Danni was going to make it!
Laila Ali teaching Dannie the ropesIt’s not uncommon for a puppy to take a downward spiral fast, and oftentimes, it can be hard to intervene and save them from death. Expert veterinary care provided at Willow Oak Veterinary Hospital gave Kreem the tools to use to provide the round-the-clock care. Danni was one of the luckier ones. She did not slip through the cracks thanks to the watchful eye of Milburn and her RUFF posse. Kreem just chalks it up to another day in rescue. Once Danni is medically cleared, she will move from the Kreem Farm to a foster who will get Danni the socialization and behavioral skills she needs to be adopted. Kreem does this to make room for other urgent cases that require her attention. Thanks to a team of dedicated survivors, Danni continues to improve every day.
