Dixie Boy came in to the rescue in May 2014. He is 15.2 hands and weighed in at 836 pounds, approximately 300 pounds underweight. He had a severe overload of worms. He was immediately IV wormed and is now on a daily wormer.
In his first week at the rescue, he got a vet check. His teeth were floated, he was IV wormed and microchipped. The vet said he should be fine with some groceries and some TLC.
He was taken to University of Florida for an exploratory surgery. He never woke from the surgery.
