Pets & People, Healthy at Home

Scamp, a 13 year old, large black dog was adopted from a shelter as a young pup by his person, Charlee, now a retired telephone communicator. Over his lifetime, Scamp was a true life saver – several times, in fact! He was that kind of dog. She had a concussion and the first thing she knew when she woke up was that Scamp was licking her. Scamp pulled her to a safe place so she could use him to get back on her feet without falling again. Whenever their home was in danger, Scamp protected all of the pets and Charlee. If there was a gas leak, carbon monoxide fumes, or a hot wire in the wall, Scamp would insist that they go outside so frequently, that she knew they had a problem in their home even before the alarms finally went off. Scamp helped Charlee make new friends and helped her adjust to their new home. Scamp was even in tune with Charlee’s medical health! Whenever Charlee’s blood pressure would rise or her blood sugar was too low, Scamp would let Charlee know she needed to take care of herself. They loved taking walks together, and as he got older, Charlee made sure Scamp had pain medication to manage his chronic pain and see his veterinarian every 6 months. She needed to make sure she helped Scamp, the dog that saved her life so many times. Scamp was enjoying a walk in the park when all of a sudden, another dog attacked him! Charlee knew that he needed veterinary care right away. Scamp needed lots of stitches, and he was in a lot of pain. Because of generous people like you, Scamp was able to get the excellent care he needed. Charlee got the Veterinary Payment Vouchers she needed from One Health Organization to afford the veterinary care that Scamp required when he was hurt and got professional help. We are pleased to say that Scamp lived a long and happy life with Charlee.
