Very disturbing development with Dr.Hagrid. Despite calling out sick yesterday and today, this picture on a French nude beach was found. Needless to say Dr. Hagrid’s job is in peril.

Jake came to FSS for wound management after he had emergency surgery at Friendship Hospital For Animals for necrotizing fasciitis. Due to the infection, Jake ended up losing some skin from the first surgery site and eventually had a second surgery to close the open wound. Jake also had a torn meniscus and cruciate ligament which left him non weight bearing on his right hind limb. Dr. Glassman repaired his knee during his second surgery and Jake went home last Friday, the 27th. He will be back next week for suture and staple removal.

Ginger took off after a deer in the woods and came back non weight bearing on her left front limb. Her owners brought her to Friendship Hospital For Animals' emergency service, radiographs revealed a fracture, and she was referred to Friendship Surgical Specialists. Dr. Glassman repaired the fracture the next day, using an external fixator. Now that her leg is fixed, she is feeling so good, that her owners report she is a little hard to keep quiet. In a few weeks, we will be taking radiographs to assess bone healing and hopefully she can have the fixator removed soon!

Hailey had a TPLO surgery on her right hind limb on November 29, 2011.

Her caretaker writes - Hailey is a 2-year-old, female, Rottweiler, that lives at the Hyattsville Volunteer Fire Department in Hyattsville, Maryland. Hailey’s story starts well before she ever came to be the firehouse dog. She was adopted as a puppy from the Washington Animal Rescue League, where her story is one with a sad start, but becomes happier with each passing day.

Hailey, along with her sisters, Rylie and Lilla, were found in a precarious situation in Washington, DC, where their owner had placed heavy rubber bands around their limbs and necks. As the puppies grew, the bands didn’t and eventually began to cause harm. When Hailey was adopted she still had a scar around her neck where the rubber band had become embedded. Her sister, Rylie, had one of her front legs amputated as a result of the abuse.

Hailey was taken home as the newest member of the Hyattsville Volunteer Fire Department in April at about 16 weeks old. Over the past year and a half, Hailey has become a trademark of the station, a friendly companion to the members of the company, and an important fixture at the firehouse. Hailey even joins the crews from time to time on fire prevention trips into the community to discuss fire safety.

More recently Hailey began making trips back to the Washington Animal Rescue League to take part in camps for children who want to learn about working animals and about abuse prevention. She was also reunited with her sister Rylie, after a year of growing, and enjoys play dates whenever possible.

At some point during Hailey’s recent history she injured one of her back legs, likely playing at the firehouse with her human brothers and sisters. Subsequent vet visits confirmed that she had a torn ligament in one of her knees and that she required surgery to repair the damage. As a volunteer organization the Hyattsville Volunteer Fire Department relies on donations to purchase equipment used to fight fires and perform rescues. Because we are not for profit Hailey’s funding for food, vet visits, and toys comes from the firehouse soda machine. At 50 cents per can, it was going to take a lot of soda to get Hailey her surgery.

Through various channels, including our friends at Washington Animal Rescue League, Hailey was connected to the staff at the Friendship Hospital For Animals in Washington DC. Their board certified surgeon, Dr. Mat Glassman, worked with Hailey and the members of the Fire Department to make sure she got the help she needed. Both Hailey and the members of the HVFD are grateful for their assistance. Hailey is currently in her first week of post surgery rehabilitation.

Oscar is an energetic, 6 month old, Lab who lives in Maine. During a visit to DC he misjudged the height of the hotel bed. He attempted to jump up while his owner was sleeping and fell back on his leg, causing a fracture.

Nine days after surgery his owner writes, "Oscar is his general crazy and wild self...He loves his walks and smelling all the Maine things. He loves to bother me and the other dog. More than anything, he loves his food."

Make sure to also watch the video of him walking the day after surgery. ~Coming soon~

"I've had Moose since March 2008. I had just arrived to Camp Lejeune, NC, and was coming back from the beach one day when I stopped at a gas station. There was a box of puppies there, and when I went to pet the puppies, they all shied away, except for Moose. I knew right then and there I was goin...

Meet Moose! Moose's mom, Laurie had barely been back in the states after serving our country in Afghanistan when Moose was hit by a car. The severity of the accident requires such specialty surgery and post-operative care that Laurie considered taking out a loan to help cover the estimate of over $10,000 dollars. To recognize the contribution and outstanding commitment Laurie has given to our country, Friendship will be covering the cost of Moose's care. Stay tuned for updates on Moose's progress!
