Oscar is part of a pair who were abandoned in Hurricane Sandy. He and his lady companion, Rosie are now living out their lives in Forever Foster care where the get all the love, attention and the special care that Oscar needs. 

Oscar is a happy go lucky big ham of a pug who loves life and all people, other animals and children, his toys, food and belly rubs so much. He's a very content boy except for one thing. He has a dangerous seizure condition that can be potentially fatal if not kept in check. So far Western drugs have helped with the severity of seizures but the frequency of seizures has not decreased and he is still having the dangerous cluster seizures where they occur more than once in a 24 hour period. 

Before we go the route of adding anymore chemicals to Oscar's system, we have begun a holistic treatment plan aimed at addressing the root cause of the seizures by using Acupuncture, diet modification, and a number of Chinese herbs.

Here is Oscar receiving his first Acupunture treatment. He was so relaxed he fell asleep and snored through the whole thing:

 

We are very hopeful that Oscar's seizure condition will improve so he can get on with the daily living and loving that every pug deserves - without the interruptions of these scary seizures!

Despite Oscar's ailments, he has a very good quality of life in his forever foster home, and has a good prognosis as long as we can continue to provide for his on-going medical care that will be necessary. Breakdown of costs, as follows:.
