DISCLOSURE: SKD recommends all adopters and fosters schedule a thorough vet checkup within 3 months of arrival. As you are aware, these dogs are rescued from the dog meat trade where there is no standard of care or nourishment. Due to their past and the unsanitary environment on dog farms, there may be unknown health issues or injuries. What to look for: Ear, eye, skin, teeth and gum issues, gastrointestinal and respiratory issues, parasites, wounds, and bacterial infections.
That means you will be responsible for all future veterinary/medical care.
