Cora is doing so well that she was spayed this week. She had no trouble with the surgery and is feeling fine. And better news: Cora will be at our first adoption event since the pandemic at Charlie's Pet Fashion in Bajo Boquete on October 9! Yes, Cora is ready to find her new home! She has a bright future ahead of her, thanks to each of you! Every one of you made a huge difference in the life of this innocent little girl. She was left to die on the side of the road in the pouring rain, and she was saved and healed because YOU stepped into her circle of care. Blessings upon you all.

Cora is healing extremely well, and is starting to enjoy life. She plays with other dogs and scampers around on all four legs. All her pins are out, she can put weight on her legs, and her skin is healing. She acts like a happy, carefree little pup, which she deserves to be! She is doing so well that she is nearly ready to be spayed. Then she will be eligible for adoption. Her long journey toward health and wholeness is almost complete!

Cora got the pin in her hind leg removed (yay!), but has developed a breakdown of her skin. If she bumps into something she bleeds. At first the doctor thought it was an allergy to her antibiotic, but upon further investigation we discovered it is due to her compromised immune system. She has had so many assaults on her system that the skin disease is difficult to manage. She is receiving treatment for skin issues as well as overall nutritional support. The pins in her front leg will be removed in early August.

Every little bit of progress is important. Today Cora stood upright on four legs to eat her dinner. She bore her weight on all four legs. This is new for her, and represents steady progress! We are so grateful to the generous folks who have contributed to her medical care. /|

Cora is learning to put weight on her hind leg, which is where she had the infection. She had to make yet another trip to the hospital to drain a hematoma on her front elbow. So she's been back and forth to the vet's a lot of uncomfortable procedures. In spite of this, she maintains her loving attitude and is always patient with the people trying to help her.

Cora was hospitalized again on Thursday, June 18 because she developed a fever and severe infection at the surgery site in her hind leg. The vet extracted 1/4 cup of infected fluid and immediately started antibiotic injections every 8 hours. Cora remained at the vet's until Monday, June 22. She came home with a drain implanted in the surgery site. Throughout this painful complication, Cora trusted the people working with her and never snapped. She has such a loving heart in spite of her suffering.

Cora developed a fever and an infection in the surgery site on her hind leg. She was taken back to the animal hospital, where the doctor removed 1/4 cup of fluid from the abscess. She is receiving antibiotic injections every 8 hours around the clock until at least Monday. She will not be released from the hospital until she is stable and the infection is under control. In spite of it all, Cora is affectionate and trusting with everyone working with her.

Cora is home from the hospital. She's in pain still, not able to walk much. You can see the pins in her front leg in this photo.

Cora has external pins inserted in both legs to help the broken bones heal. She stayed overnight at the animal hospital and rested quietly. If you look at her right front leg you can see the pink padding for the pins.

After her rescue, Cora was placed with an experienced foster, who assessed her condition. Her right front leg was splinted. She received flea treatment, treatment for her skin fungus, and anti-parasite meds. She is malnourished. She went on pain meds, but there was still a big problem. Cora struggled to do her business in the grass because she could not put weight on her hind leg. X-rays showed severe fractures of both front and hind legs on the right side.
