Meet FACE Success Story Butterscotch!

Here at FACE, we love to help all pets, we just don’t get many opportunities to help animals other than dogs and cats. When we received a call about Butterscotch, a five-year-old guinea pig who needed an eye removal, we knew we had to help this adorable little guy!

Though losing an eye might sound scary, Butterscotch was in the best of hands, receiving care from exotic pet expert Dr. Cecil at San Diego’s Pet Emergency & Specialty Center.  PESC is one of FACE’s incredible veterinary hospital partners and provides us with a 25% discount off the entire procedure.

Surgery was a complete success and Butterscotch has returned home to his loving family and his brother, Peanut Butter!

 

Meet FACE Success Story Luka!

Meet Luka, a five-year-old Spaniel mix who was presented to the veterinary hospital with severe bladder stones. Luka’s mom fundraised extensively to help her sweet dog, but was still unable to afford the entire cost of the procedure.

She contacted FACE looking for a helping hand in saving her best friend. With the helpful doctors and staff at Banfield Pet Hospital, Luka was able to have her emergency cystotomy surgery and return to fun-filled days with her mom!

 

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: Meet Casper!

This happy little pup is a recent FACE Sucess Story.  Casper is a member of a large and loving family of 6.  He was diagnosed with a painful and debilitating spinal condition known as IVDD (intervertebral disc disease).

Casper needed immediate surgery with a veterinary neurologist.  Thanks to our partner California Veterinary Specialists and a grant from FACE, Casper’s family was able to get him the surgery he so urgently needed.

 

Summer Pet Safety – Dogs and Hot Cars

With the Memorial Day holiday weekend just around the corner, now is the perfect time to share an important reminder with all pet owners:  Dogs and hot cars don’t mix!

According to the ASPCA, leaving pets alone in a hot car is animal cruelty.  Pets can die from overheating in a parked car very quickly.  Certain dogs are at higher risk for heat-related illness, including:

  • Puppies
  • Senior dogs
  • Short-muzzled breeds
  • Dogs with dark and/or thick coats

Remember that on a day that feels comfortable to you, the temperature inside a car can be 20 degrees higher than the outdoor air temperature, even with the windows cracked open.

Don’t take your dog with you when you’re out running errands in your car on hot summer days.  If you see a dog left alone in a hot car, be sure to call local law enforcement or animal control right away.
