**Emergency Intake this evening!! We got a call from one of the shelters we work with regarding this lady who needed immediate release due to medical reasons. We were told she is 1-2 years old and very sick. Our volunteers rushed to get her and rushed her to the vet. She has a very deep hematoma on her ear that is split open, bite wounds on all four of her legs and she is a very, very sick little girl.
Her rescuers have named her Ellie....
Ellie is spending the night on antibiotic fluids and the surgeon has been called in. The vets are worried about sepsis. The pinna (part of the ear) is torn very deep and they said from the ooze she may be resistant to alot of antibiotics. They may have to do a pinnectomy. Dual ear infections and finding out the severity of that will tell canal issues. Her left front leg is swollen also, either due to healing from an old wound or abscess. Tonight, they will sedate Ellie, clean out her ear, do xrays of her leg, trim her ear, start the antibiotics, culture the wound, and evaluate again tomorrow.
Ellie is very sick. She is very tired. Please pray and send her lots of love. Her care is going to be very expensive. The deposit alone from tonight is $1500. Can you help with her care? No amount is too small. Ellie deserves this fighting chance.
