Ivan, a three year old Miniature Dachshund male, was brought to the Citizens for Animal Protection shelter in early February.He was extremely obese and could not walk. CAP hopes to find a new, loving home for Ivan but in the meantime, they are sponsoring surgery for this wonderful little dog, who will make someone a loving and loyal companion.
Shelby Kibodeaux is fostering Ivan and took him to the Canine Health Institute for evaluation. CHI has graciously donated their services for Ivan, and they have determined that Ivan will require an operation to correct an intervertebral disc compressing his spinal cord.
The Canine Health Institute (CHI) is a new facility offering an unparalleled level of care for pets in pain. Located at 3800 Southwest Freeway, this new, state-of-the-art facility is truly one of a kind. CHI is dedicated to enhancing the physical abilities and life quality of dogs through offering services in conditioning, pain management and rehabilitation.
Through a process of veterinarian referral, you can find new comfort for your dog. Through services such as diagnostic imaging, acupuncture, chiropractic, heat therapy, hydro therapy, laser therapy, massage, ultrasound, stem cell therapy, weight control and more, CHI can develop a customized program for your pet, working in tandem with your veterinarian.
