It is with a heavy heart that we report the loss of Salty. He came into rescue as Scooby, an extremely large 10 month old puppy who had no idea of what “manners” were. Thanks to the efforts from his foster family we learned that Scooby loved water and having a good time & just needed an experienced owner who knew how to set the rules and be consistent. Then along came the Bludworths. It was a perfect fit! He got a new home and a new name.
Unfortunately, during the last 7 months it became apparent that something wasn’t right. After numerous tests and consults with different vets & specialists, it was determined that Salty had neurological degeneration. At the rate it was occurring, it was becoming hard for him to control his movements and was in pain. The Texas A&M Neurologist and the Bludworth’s vet recommended that the best thing to do was to help Salty “Cross the Bridge.” The Bludworth’s decided to have a complete autopsy done in the hopes that, in studying Salty’s brain damage & degeneration, it will shed light on the disorder and help future dogs.
