Severely malnourished, Barbie wouldn't have lasted long if we hadn't stepped in to help...
Nicky is a 14 year old dog, who was abandoned in a garden for 5 years. When we took her in a few months ago, she was in a terrible state: she had no hair, she had abscesses all over her body and her eyes were infected.
Thirsty and hungry, she was very skinny and completely anemic. She was also covered by vermin... So we took her to the vet in emergency.
If we were able to cure her glaucoma and her hepatic problems, Nicky still has regularly new infections in her eyes. She also keeps on having abscesses on her back, despite the treatments.
She also suffers from age-related problems: she has osteoarthritis and a heart condition.
A quality diet specially adapted for senior dogs would be a great help to Nicky. With such canned food, she would have enough to get her strength back, so she could spend her old age more peacefully. She would never lack for anything again!
The possibility of receiving unsold kibble for the dogs of our association has just fallen through. With the prices that have increased and the impossibility to find certain products in stores, we don't know how we will be able to feed all our animals. So we have been forced once again to stop new rescues...
