Last Tuesday, someone surrendered an emaciated boxer to a rescue group in Colorado. The skeletal dog, dubbed “Spartan,” has been undergone extensive testing to determine if there is a medical reason for his malnourished state of health.
On Saturday, the rescue group, Ho-Bo Care Boxer Rescue, updated Facebook followers about Spartan’s rest results:
Spartan’s ultrasound showed no blockage, only mild inflammation. All of his blood work has come back normal.
Spartan still needs to have a few more tests (fecal sample, urinalysis, and colitis biopsy) to ensure that he is otherwise healthy – thus far, however, it appears that Spartan’s poor health may have been sheer neglect.
Donations for Spartan’s ongoing veterinary testing and care can be made at this link.
