Chip has a new home

1/7/16: Chip had a big day moving into his new home with his new family, a wonderful retired couple in Georgetown, TX. When Chip came to us in late November, we thought he only needed a dental and a neuter. At the time of his initial checkup, we learned he had a fractured jaw at some point which was not fully healed and slightly misaligned. The regular vet recommended he be seen by a specialist for his dental to ensure his extractions would not compromise his jaw. We scheduled a specialist and thankfully all went well with Chip's remaining extractions. He just needed a little healing time and was ready to go to his perfect forever home. Chip's total vetting exceeded $1600 and thanks to his wonderful donors, we collected $915 toward his expenses.
