Sugar Ray says thanks

From the Portage APL: Thank you all for your patience. Here is the latest on Sugar Ray’s recovery…

Start here for context.sugar ray
The veterinarian indicates that Sugar Ray is doing pretty well at this point. He is eating eagerly the small but frequent feedings he is given. He has gained some weight. His excretory functions are now up and running. His body temperature has improved. He does NOT have non-regenerative anemia and his blood cells ARE regenerating. Sugar Ray also has started wagging his tail and back end just a little!

At this point the doctor is “less cautious and more optimistic.”

Again, a reminder that this process is going to be a long one. We appreciate everyone’s interest in his condition and interest in adoption. It is way too early for that, however. Because the treatment (which did include a transfusion) will be costly, the APL is grateful for any and all support. And to the many questions as to whether the on-line donation application uses PayPal, the answer is “yes.” Those wishing to help may click here.
