Northwest Boy Chewy
Chewy is a sweet young chessie who has struggled with some medical issues. Arriving with uncontrolled diabetes and very underweight, his amazing fosters went to work getting him healthy, going from 52lbs to 77lbs, tracking blood sugar levels with the Libre meter and giving daily insulin injections.
Because of diabetes, Chewy developed an abscess on his leg and has had to undergo several treatments to get wound healed.
A suspected Melanoma on the third eyelid was detected and removed, labs confirmed it was indeed Melanoma. Chewy’s doctor was able to fully remove the tumor and he should not be troubled with it any further.
The Board unanimously agreed to cover costs for Chewy under our “Pawlitive” Mission.
Chewy’s Forever Fosters say he is the best, sweetest boy ever.
