Once Team Paws has initiated a rescue and are able to successfully save the puppy/dog, our Rescued Paws begin their journey with New Life For Paws by immediately being taken to a certified veterinarian. All Rescued Paws receive a checkup. Frequently they may require blood tests, vitamin shots and antibiotics. The most common conditions which we have to provide treatment for are anemia, tick disease, parasites, flea treatment, heartworm and/or skin conditions.Many Rescued Paws will require multiple visits to the veterinarian each day/week until they are healthy. While receiving veterinary treatment, our Rescued Paws will be fostered with one of our amazing families on the island.
