Transformation Tuesday: Peaches
Peaches, a 5-year-old Maltese mix, arrived at AHS as an injured stray. When Peaches came through our doors, she had wounds to her head and neck. Upon her initial exam, it was also noted that Peaches had a rare eye disease called microphthalmia. Since Peaches was a stray and was not receiving proper treatment for her condition, hair and debris had accumulated in her eye socket. Due to the result of the infected area, our veterinarians in our Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital did recommend an enucleation surgery be performed and did remove Peaches' left eye. Along with the many lifesaving programs and services AHS has to offer, AHS’ Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital™ is dedicated to providing care for animals with nowhere else to turn. Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital Pet Groomer and Docent Volunteer, Lisa, groomed this sweet pup and exposed her wounds, allowing our medical staff to ensure she received the treatment she needed. Peaches received the works from our Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital staff including a groom, wound treatment, vaccinations, enucleation surgery, non-reducible umbilical hernia repair surgery and spay surgery. Now, all healed up and ready to take on the world, this sweet pup is currently available for adoption and looking for her fur-ever home at our Petique at Biltmore Fashion Park.
