Meet Helen, our newest sweetheart. Helen came from the San Jacinto shelter where she ended up after being picked up as a stray. This poor girl has never known care in her short little life. The shelter aged her at 7 years old, but her teeth are pretty good so she may be younger.
She has multiple mammary tumors, both chains will probably have to be pulled. They are numerous and large.
She has enormous cherry eyes; the right cherry eye is so big it has pushed her eyeball down behind it and you can barely even see the eye unless you move the cherry eye out of the way. The left eye also has a huge cherry eye covering most of it, and looks ‘big’ (possible glaucoma) and has a huge scar on the surface, so no doubt some corneal abrasion/ulcer from a long time ago that was not treated. She may be blind.
Her shelter notes said she has luxating patellas on both back legs, but she walks fine, gingerly, but she can walk.
The inside of her ears were absolutely black. They did not appear or smell infected, but were unbelievable dirty.
We cleaned her up and have given her a lot of TLC. She is very sweet and friendly.
She will be paying a visit to Dr. Card on Monday.
Any donation, large or small, is much appreciated toward medical attention for this girl.
She’s looking sad now, but we’re hoping soon, with SCCR love and care, her tail will be wagging.
