Boone is a Redbone Coonhound rescued from animal control after being found limping on the side of the road by a hospice worker. Boone had x-rays done the next day which revealed a bullet lodged in his knee, as well as a cracked/shattered bone, and an ACL rupture. Boone came back positive for heartworms as well. Affiliated Veterinary Specialist in Maitland preformed a surgery on Boone to remove the bullet and culture the joint. Due to possible infection, they didn't repair the ACL. This procedure they may have to do in 2-3 months. Pet Street Veterinary Care Center has been doing cold laser treatment to help him with the pain at no charge. Since then, Boone has started using his leg more and more each day. Boone will go through heartworm treatment soon, then for his neutering once his leg is all healed up.
