Update – Lily
Severely emaciated senior petite black lab mix that required immediate blood transfusion for survival.
Lily is still at Blue Pearl under 24 hour care . After receiving fluids and a blood transfusion her condition has improved . She is still weak but so much better than when she came in . We should have pathology reports back soon on aspirations taken from the masses that we found on her frail body . Lily continues to have elevated liver enzymes. Further testing will be done . She is on a very strict feeding schedule to ensure that her body properly processes food . Thus far she is ! Lily did test positive for a tick born disease that causes lethargy and she will begin treatment immediately.
Lily is so gentle . Her sweet kisses just melt your heart ! Also, whenever you stop petting her she looks deep into your eyes and gently puts her paw on you to ask you to continue. This girl did not deserve this degree of neglect… no animal does . We are just so thankful The Arrow Fund could say yes to her and that is due to your support!
New Case – Meet Lily
Yesterday afternoon we were contacted about a starving dog that was starting to visibly decline . We immediately said yes and she was transported to Blue Pearl .
Lily needed fluids immediately and a blood transfusion. Sadly Lily has several masses which we have aspirated and will get pathology reports back on Tuesday . She is anemic . Her white cells are high . She also has elevated kidney and liver values . An ultrasound and radiographs have been done . Lily is a body scale 1 of 9 which means she is severely emaciated. She has been started on a scheduled feeding plan of very small meals several times a day to make sure she can tolerate food properly . Lily has had most likely many litters which also has taken a toll on her frail body . Several teeth are missing and many ground completely down . She is stable and under 24 hour care . Please keep our Lily close to your heart ❤️. These pictures really do not really show how thin she is .
