I received this picture in the middle of the night. A female dog lies on the floor in the darkness. She is terrified, unable to move, one of her legs has a terrible gash.
The person that took the picture left the dog behing, rushing home to look for help.
There was no time to waste. If she stayed there overnight chances are she would die of exposure so we organised to go there and quickly move her to our hospital.
We have called her Bianca… and today, she is a broken dog, physically and emotionally.
I´m looking at her shaking, thinking that just a few hours ago there was nothing in her world but darkness, cold and fear… It´s a heartbreaking moment but deep inside I am happy. Happy because I know last night was the last night Bianca will ever suffer. From today we are going to change her world, and her life.
BIANCA lays today at our hospital, surrounded by one of the best medical teams in the country… Her blood results are a catastrophy, she has anemia and Ehrlichia, and we need to stabilise her before we perform surgery to save her leg.
BIANCA surgery is called and arthrodesis (fusion) of the carpus, and it´s the only way she will be able to walk again…
The arthrodesis is a very radical surgery but it´s the only way to salvage her leg…
Together, we can achieve a miracle for BIANCA…
