Update on Finn

Finn continues to improve but also has setbacks. His skin has improved but continues to have little sores rise through the skin. He has been on a cocktail of 3 antibiotics. Recently he developed a nasty cyst on his knee (see picture), leading the vet to recommend surgically removing it to prevent ongoing infections and switching one of the antibiotics. His physical therapy sessions of acupuncture, laser treatment, and massage, and his foster home exercises, have improved his mobility. Treadmill water therapy has been put on hold while the skin issues get resolved.

The Shamrock Circle Fund was established in 2003 by a gracious adopter to fund extraordinary medical and emergency expenses for purebred Golden Retrievers.

Through this fund, we are able to help the neediest Goldens: the sick, the injured, the severely abused and the elderly.


Shamrock donors make monthly pledges for which every dollar donated to this fund is spent only on these special needs Goldens.
