After bringing him home, Rodgers took Neno to the vet. The vet discovered Neno was anemic, which could have been the result of a massive tick infestation he had. He also has an underactive thyroid, which the vet is stabilizing before doing any advanced neurological testing for Neno’s wobbliness. Neno is also infected with heartworm, which will be treated once he’s healthy enough.
Rodgers suspects Neno may have lived his former life outside, or on a chain, due to the number of pressure sores on his body.
