On 8 October 2021, Carys (the Welsh word for "Love") was one of a depressing series of hit-and-run dogs rescued from a long, lingering and painful death the roads.
She couldn't walk and apparently had been lying in the same place for two to three days after being hit by a car. People were feeding her, which is all they can do. Most local people cannot afford the vet bills to treat a dog like Carys.
Our vet assistants provided first aid treatment, took blood, ran blood tests and started her on medication. We also used a Nexgard Spectra donated by Catherine to address her flea tick and mange condition. There was blood in her urine, and x-rays showed that her pelvis was broken at the connection to her femur.
A full blood test run by Animal Wellness indicated internal bleeding, and we were hoping to do a blood transfusion on 10 October when she succumbed to her injuries and slipped quietly away, with her pain managed with Morphine. So sorry Carys. Run free.
