We took in Toto today. He is estimated to be a Maltese mix, 3 to 5 years old. Toto is exhibiting distress & pain/ possible injury. Since our vet was closed, we took him to VCA to get checked out.
The vet had to shave him down. He believes one leg has muscle atrophy from the severity of the mats. One leg couldn’t properly extend due to matting which wrapped around leg.
Toto is being sent home with Buprenorphine for pain and Rimadyl as an anti-inflammatory. We imagine he feels much better now. And what a transformation!
