Patient: Max (Found and brought to BFVC)
After being picked up in the Bronx all alone and scared, Max appeared to have been neglected and abandoned. Thankfully Max was brought into Brook Farm Veterinary Center when a family found him and knew he needed help.
Max was severely matted and dirty, and required he get a good shave down and bath. He was nervous at first, but our amazing Vet tech, Jessica, and Animal Care Assistant, Caitlin, were heroes in getting him calm and comfortable. It took them hours to get to a place where this patient felt completely comfortable and could relax, but they did not give up on him! They knew with a lot of TLC they’d start earning his trust and in time, they certainly did.
The Brook Farm team worked together using Fear Free techniques to get Max looking and feeling his best. He went from being a scared and dirty mess to a friendly happy little guy with a bunch of new friends. This patient really transformed while in Brook Farm’s care. While he was with us, we checked him for a microchip to try and reunite him with his family in case he had been lost. Unfortunately, Max did not have one, and we weren’t able to locate his owner. We also made sure that Max was up to date on his core vaccines to ensure he stays happy and healthy.
We wanted the absolute best for this patient, so Brook Farm Veterinary Center decided it was in the best interest of Max that we get him cleaned up and feeling better. In doing so, Brook Farm Veterinary Center also took care of his invoice as a sign of good will using our Farm Fund. Luckily after seeing his transformation, the lovely people who found him came back to pick him up and claimed Max as their new fur baby.
There is a happy ending here thanks to these good people for finding Max and bringing him in for the care he deserved. We wish him the very best in his new home and look forward to seeing him back for routine visits.
Thank you for finding Max and bringing him to us, where we could help get him back on his feet again. At Brook Farm Veterinary Center your pet’s health is our life passion because we are obsessed with helping pet’s!
