Yakima Police K9 Trex has significant medical issues
K9 Trex has health issues, and the Yakima Police Department is working to find out what’s wrong. Yakima police officials say he has “significant medical issues.” They say Trex hasn’t been feeling well for some time and now say his condition is getting worse. The problem is that the doctors cannot find the problem. Police say he was seen at Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine with visits to several local veterinary clinics, but still no response as to why Trex is not feeling well and not eating much. They continue to “struggle” to diagnose his condition despite multiple tests and biopsies. Yakima police say the treatment is expensive and they are hoping for help. The K9 Yakima Valley Foundation collects donations. You can find information at https://k9foundationyv.org/
Trex has undergone several treatments but so far no response
Trex has taken various medications and appetite stimulants, but he still weighs 55 pounds compared to his ideal weight of 85.
Sadly, police say his “appetite for food is mostly gone, aside from being hand-fed chunks of roast chicken.”
Trex will return to WSU this week
Yakima Police Department officials say they are concerned and want answers to help him, so they will return to the Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine this week for more treatment. They hope to soon diagnose and start treating the problem he has directly.
Police are asking the public to keep K9 Trex in your thoughts.
