Here's another emaciated dog we got in yesterday. He was abandoned in a rural area. The poor woman who found him was just devastated about his condition and the fact that he was most likely dumped off. Why do people do that? The dog is in such poor condition between his emaciation and the fact that his gums were white. The vet thinks he may have cancer and is bleeding internally. We have some palliative treatment to see if he responds but it does not look good. The worst part is we don't really know what is going on, how old he is, and if his former owners knew what was going on. At least he is eating, and sleeping comfortably for now.
