Unexpected Treatment and More

Your sex life isn’t the only thing Viagra can help fix. It’s helping to keep a Pit Bull named Ingrid alive.

She needs a daily dose of the wonder pill in order to help treat congestive heart failure.  Anyone who adopts her will receive a free supply of the drug. Wink wink.

A Pit Bull puppy was beaten to death on a golf course by three children.  Golfers stopped the beating and rushed to a vet to try and save it, but to no avail.  Is a special place reserved in hell for animal abusers? 

Who knows?  But those children probably need to feel the back side of a stick themselves.

The puppy was only 8 weeks old.

Meanwhile, a wheelchair bound Pit Bull mix is bringing some light to kids with various disabilities.  Every few weeks, Piggy visits the Shriner’s hospital and meets patients coming out of surgery or being fitted for wheelchairs themselves.

Therapy dogs offer something special, as simple canine love can sometimes accomplish things regular therapy can’t.  As therapist Laura Lewis says: “I’ve witnessed moments where a child hasn’t talked to anyone else, but
the second that the dog comes in the room, they will just sit down and
tell a dog how they’re feeling and what scares them.”

Hey all! I’m Matthias and I love Pit Bulls (as you probably can guess lol). Until a couple years ago I had Blaze next to me while writing the articles for this blog and he was my inspiration, he still is but - hopefully - from a better life 🙂

I am not a veterinarian or veterinary health care specialist, so nothing in this blog should be taken or used as a substitute for professional help. Use our content as information to have a basic understanding about Pit Bulls but always look for expert advice, specifically when treating or diagnosing your Pittie.

Hope my articles are of any help to you, your family and especially your Pit Bull. Thanks for stopping by, enjoy!
