Columbus, Georgia (WRBL) — In early December, WRBL reported on Layla, an injured, emaciated, heartworm-positive dog who was adopted by the Paws Humane Society. At the time, she had a severe laceration in her throat that had to be treated with her surgery. A veterinarian found two scars on her neck, which the Paws Humane Society attributed to her implanted collar.
Since then, Layla has made a significant recovery and is ready for adoption.
“She’s actually doing very well…of course she still has scars,” said Courtney Pierce, executive director of the Paws Humane Society. “But all her wounds have healed. Scars.” Hair has started to grow from the top, they are there but when she is fully recovered they are actually less noticeable. looks like.”
After gaining enough weight, Layla was treated for heartworm.
“Whenever we do heartworm treatments, it takes a while for them to come back negative,” Pierce said. It takes, but that’s standard for any dog.”
Pearce said Layla’s diet is fine and she’s fine. She said Layla loves people, but the Paws Humane Society doesn’t yet know how Layla treats other dogs.
“Whenever we do filariasis treatment, we also have exercise restrictions,” she said.
