Stats: 9 years old, female
Adoption Fee: TBD
This sweet senior girl is Violet. We estimate she's at least 9 years old. She was found in bad shape in a rural area of OK known for dumping dogs. She could barely walk and was obviously sick. Thankfully our friends with BCSAVE stepped up and got her in to see a vet ASAP before she made her way to Texas. Since she is an Aussie, they reached out to us for help!
She was suffering from a very bad case of pyometra from never having been spayed, which led to a massive infection in her uterus. She went into surgery to remove her uterus and hopefully get the infection under control. She also had x-rays done on her leg to see if it was broken. The x-rays showed a spot on her shoulder bone that they don't think is a fresh injury, but couldn't tell for sure if it is a tumor on the bone or muscle atrophy around the bone from an old injury left untreated.
We're going to give her a month of rest and recuperation, along with gentle therapy and controlled walking, then have x-rays done again to evaluate. Aside from all her ailments, Violet seems to be a sweet old girl who is soaking up the love and good care.
