help pay for his care. (CONTRIBUTED PHOTO)
The Buffalo Pug and Small Breed Rescue, Inc. says that lab results from "Teddy" the pug's veterinarian's visit have returned, showing that his kidneys and liver are "OK," but other problems persist and help is needed.

"Concerning is his (white blood cell count) which is over 51,000, indicating he has a pretty bad infection," the group said on its Facebook page. "Also, his Globulin was significantly elevated which could indicate a few things: early kidney failure, multiple myeloma or possibly just from the infection. There were a few other things slightly off as well but that's what concerned him right now."

His labs will be sent off to an internist to get a second opinion and then be redrawn Monday to see if the medications, nutrition and hydration have helped. In the meantime, the dog has been started on pain medication.

Teddy is eating and drinking normally now, "and was barking in his crate bright and early to go outside."

The group is taking monetary donations at buffalopugs.org or directly to the Millersport Small Animal Clinic at 688-9424. They have also started a wish list for him, including canned food, t-shirts and blankets.

Teddy had been left in a garbage bag at the side of Mountain and Bolton road in Royalton on Sunday. He was found by a family and later turned over to Buffalo Pug and Small Breed Rescue, Inc.
