Less than 24 hours ago, a desperate plea was issued on behalf of an ailing dog who is urgently in need of veterinary care. The OPCA Shelter Network Alliance posted information about a seven-year-old dog named Mimi, who is sheltered in Van Nuys, California. The group writes:
Mimi has x rays from ACCESS SPECIALITY VET, Woodland Hills. The shelter vet said that Mimi needs either ortho surgery with FHO surgery or a leg amputation.
And included extensive notes from the East Valley Animal Care and Control Center:
