On July 29 2021, we rescued a young female dog and her puppy from extreme neglect. She and the puppy were tied up with no food, shelter or water, and must have been like that for a long time. The owner signed them over to us.
They were both full of worms and other parasites, and were dangerously underweight. She weighed just 4.6 kilos, which is around the weight a four-month old puppy should be. Izzy's blood tests showed her to be in a critical state and we began preparations for a blood transfusion.
We put her on an IV, and bought her into the clinic, but sadly she gave up the fight around 10am on Sunday 1 August 2021. Ozzy lives on, but without a mother. We are so sorry Izzy, and words can't properly express our profound sadness and bewilderment as to how an animal can be left to die in this manner.
