Spread the word for Saber, and help if you can!    
Saber

Saber is an incredible boy, full of life and love. Rescued once before, he wasstable and happy with his owner until she passed away three months ago. He was once again dumped at a shelter. Saber suffers from a long history of horrific cluster seizures. During this time many of his needs other than the basics were neglected and he did not receive his seizure medication or dental care either.

Saber's lack of oral care resulted in a deep infection that ate away at the roof of his mouth into his nasal cavity. It was incredibly painful, severely affecting his quality of life. But even when his pain became unbearable with that secondary infection, somehow Saber continued to find joy in his life.
Saber recovering

On July 28, Scooter's Pals provided Saber a two hour reconstructive surgery. Because of massive infection in his gums, all his teeth except two had to be extracted. Saber is slowly recovering now, safe and gaining strength with the love of his foster family.

Will you be a part of Saber's journey? Every dog matters. Please help Scooter's Pals pay Saber's vet bills and give this brave, sweet dog the special care he needs as he recovers.

Please donate to Saber's GoFundMe page and help by spreading the word to others. It's up to us to help this dog. Blessings for whatever you can do!
 
PEANUT BUTTER ALERT
A Common Food Additive is Deadly For Dogs!

Dog parents are being warned about giving their dogs peanut butter, a common treat most of us feed our dogs without thinking. However, with the rise of artificial sweeteners comes a serious danger to dogs!

Xylitol, a sugar alcohol derivative used in lieu of sugar, has been showing up in nut butters. While safe for humans, xylitol can cause a sudden drop in blood sugar for dogs, sending them into hypoglycemic shock and possibly lead to liver failure.

Nuts-N-More

The most common nut butter containing xylitol is Nut-N-More, a peanut butter with added protein, chia seeds, and other items to help up the nutrition without adding calories. Pet owners should make sure to read the label carefully when purchasing nut butter, or any other sugar-free product that contains xylitol, including sugar-free gum, toothpaste, yogurts, and other products with no or reduced sugar.


SAVE THE DATE!
