Suzy and the Ham Bone

Suzy is the first dog assisted through our veterinary assistance program with BISSELL Pet Foundation grant funding at Blue Ridge Animal Clinic.  Suzy was adopted from a shelter in 2013 as a skinny and scared dog and was nursed back to health by her owner. Suzy’s owner has since fallen on tough times and doesn’t have any income right now.  She reached out to us after Suzy, her spayed beagle mix, accidentally swallowed a ham bone.  With funding from the BISSELL Pet Foundation, the vet determined there weren’t any bone fragments left in her stomach.  We also helped Suzy get vaccinated for her distemper and rabies.
