A group of employees at a local strip mall discovered a seemingly lifeless dog at the back of a shared dumpster hidden behind stacks of trash bags as they were attempting to emptying it. When they were able to see the dog more clearly they could see the dog was breathing but unconscious and were able to cut off his collar that was extremely tight around his neck.
Luckily for the pit bull one of the employees was an animal lover with connections. His sister Mrs. Sondra Munoz, who he called for assistance is a receptionist at the Family Pet Hospital of Stone Oak. Shortly after she arrived and was able to establish that it was safe to remove the dog from the dumpster, he regained consciousness and began panting heavily. Sondra knew that they weren’t yet out of the woods and that due to his weakened condition this dog would require medical attention.
She contacted her employer Dr. Michael Woolley. Although it was a weekend and he was out of town with his family, he offered his services without hesitation asking Sondra to meet him at the hospital located in Stone Oak as soon as possible.
During his examination Dr. Woolley found that the dog had a bruised and swollen head and neck, was dehydrated, his eyes were bulging and extremely blood shot and his nose had been bleeding; signs that he had likely been strangled, thrown in the hot dumpster and left for dead. Dr. Woolley recommended that he be at least be hospitalized and that he receive treatment to rehydrate him.
Thanks to the loving care from the doctors and staff of the Family Pet Hospital of Stone Oak, the dog now called “Cann” has made a full recovery from the horrifically traumatic experience. He has had his immunizations, deworming, has been neutered and he is currently being obedience trained by the Boarding staff. He now awaits the outcome of an ACS cruelty case before he can be adopted.
wonderful outcome, I am so proud to be a patient of the clinic
Aw. The tender care of the FPHSO doesn't surprise me... they've cared for my pets for years with the same love.
This just breaks my heart and I am so happy that you went above and beyond for this dog. It makes me feel good that my beloved Duke goes to a doctor that is truly an animal lover.....like I am!
Dr. Woolley has always gone above and beyond for the care of our family's pets for several years.
