(A Slightly Chewed Website)
This is Summer, who only arrived with us recently in a poor condition.
She was suspected to have a pyometra (womb infection) when she came in, so went immediately to the vets, who confirmed the diagnosis and needed to operate as soon as possible. She also had a bad leg which she held awkwardly and seemed to be in pain from.
We will keep you posted on Summer's story, but please consider donating to her appeal, any amount will help.
Summer has recovered from her operation and is doing really well at Pip's.
The orthopaedic surgeon has said that the best thing for her pelvis is to leave it, the only way to mend it would be t re-break it and set it which could cause more problems than it solves. As she seems to be moving comfortably on it we have decided to leave it alone unless it becomes a problem.
Her coat is coming back through nicely now that the mange has been treated and she is generally a much happier, healthier dog.
I am pleased to report that Summer has now found a forever home where she can finish recovering and enjoy the rest of her life as a cherished pet.
She is settling in well and seems to have landed on her paws.
