Olivia “OLIVIA” Sager
This inspirational dachshund was found by a technician suffering from seizures in an alleyway. She was found critical, not walking and barely alive. With only seconds to spare, the doctors at our facility acted quickly in hopes of saving her life. She went under a battery of tests and her condition seemed to be deteriorating by the hour. The doctors and staff were determined to turn her around and save her life.
By the second day, with invasive and extensive treatment, her seizures stopped. Within a week, she was walking again. Miraculously she was running around within a month. With treatment and love from our staff, after 2 months she was fully recovered.
About 8 months later, she was adopted by our loving client, Felicia Sager. About one year later, Olivia is fully accustomed to her new loving family!
Her inspiration earned her Animal Medical Center’s Pet of the Month.
