When Goober was eight weeks old, she was transferred to Toronto Humane Society from another animal welfare organization.  

Two issues were noted during her intake examination, runny eyes and scabs on her belly. Skin scraping were sent for testing and our team monitored her runny eyes, which we expected might be part of an upper respiratory infection (like the common cold). 

The skin scraping came back normal and the runny eyes cleared but a stool test showed that Goober was positive for Coccidia and Roundworm. Coccidia is dangerous for puppies as they have under-developed immune systems, and the organisms can grow quickly. Goober was given medication to treat Coccidia and Roundworm.  

Once Goober was well enough, she had her spay surgery and was adopted.
