Canine Health Institute Donates Services To Disabled Dog

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.
