There is an important update about Bobo, the dog with the swollen muzzle who belongs to a homeless woman in California. On Friday, the Facebook page, Maria Sanchez and the pups of SBC Shelter (Save the Squishies) announced that Bobo had been located and he was en route to an emergency veterinary hospital.
Within the past hour, the latest on his condition was posted to the page followers:
“Bobo Update this morning from Leilani @Tazzy Fund’s Rescue (she is coordinating all of his medical):
He has been sleeping a lot, he is resting real comfortable. He has an E collar on because he does not like to be examined or touched. He keeps trying to rip out his catheter. They can’t muzzle him when needed because of his face so they’re just leaving the E collar on. He keeps trying to rip out his catheter.
The doctor is consulting with the surgeon to see if we are going to do a CAT scan and see if there is any chance of opening his airways and nostrils more for more comfortable breathing.
Please stay tuned for more updates as soon as I receive them, I will share.
Thank you to everyone who is praying for him, he is just so loved.”
The senior pit bull has been living the Riverside area with his owner, who is homeless – his veterinary needs have not been addressed, as is painfully evident by his shocking appearance. Though a diagnosis has not yet been made, it appears that Bobo may be suffering from some type of advanced cancer.
