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.

Someone found Cora lying crumpled on the side of the road, like a piece of trash. It was nightfall and raining heavily. The person who found her took a grainy video in the dark. This is an out-of-focus still from that video. Cora was unable to move because of the pain of two broken legs. This kind person picked her up and brought her to safety. In spite of her illness and pain, she has been very trusting of the people trying to help her.
