Help Us Save Dobby

Update posted by Martina Russo On Dec 13, 2019

Wow, we are super humbled and grateful for all the help and donations we got in such a short amount of time 😻 Thank you, you are PAWESOME!

Here's an update on Dobby's conditions.


11.12.19

1 First vet visit: Diagnosed with tapeworms and parasites, malnutrition, dehydration. Extremely skinny. Scabs on the nose, cheeks and around. She didn't eat and couldn't walk properly (bad balance). She didn't clean herself and her whole fur (from paw to tail) was consequently all dirty. Unhealthy fur on the whole body.

2. Treatments: We gave her an injection of antibiotics and a dewormer, which we'll need to give her again in 2 and then 4 weeks as her belly is incredibly large, hard and swollen from all the parasites. We bought special nutri paste and food to help gain some weight.


12.11.10

1. Second vet visit: Diagnosed with ear mites.

2. Treatments: We gave her an injection to kill the ear mites and other special meds that were applied directly in her ears. We will need to repeat the same treatment 1 x week for the next 3 weeks.

FIRST HEALTH IMPROVEMENTS

Within such a short timeframe, she is already getting on a bit of weight, eats a lot, purrs a lot, her poop went from very runny to solid and she doesn't stink anymore.

She has started cleaning herself and sometimes her balance is good enough that she can stretch, scratch, lay down and demand belly rubs 😻

Her ears are already looking better (less 'dirty'), the fur around her head and neck is starting to look slightly healthier.

We tried to play with her with some strings and she was reactive and showed some playfulness!

She is still so weak that she has never even tried once to get out of the paperbox we put her in, or maybe she simply knows that we're helping her out and she likes being in a warm, cozy new home and off the streets 🤷🏻‍♀️


Thank you again so much for all of your help! 😻😻 Visit this link to see photos & videos of Dobby's recovery https://www.instagram.com/stories/highlights/17869... 🙏🏻


We also noticed another kitty in similar conditions to Dobby, albeit a bit bigger and slightly less skinny.
