Warning – graphic content: Nadia was found suffering from infected open wounds and flystrike – can you help us with her £280+ emergency care costs?
Nadia recently arrived in our care as a stray after being found by a concerned member of the public who had noticed a worrying discharge on her coat.
After a thorough inspection it appeared that poor Nadia had multiple infected open wounds and was also suffering from Flystrike. Flystrike is a painful and sometimes fatal condition caused by flies laying their eggs on another animal or in an open wound. These hatch into maggots which eat the flesh of their ‘hosts’.
We apologise for the graphic images of Nadine’s injuries – but it’s hard to imagine her suffering without seeing the extent of her condition. We dread to think how Nadia would have managed on her own had she not been found by a kind member of the public and brought into our Animal Centre.
Our Animal Care Team suspect that she may have been attacked by another animal – and has sought shelter somewhere, leaving the wounds to become infected whilst hiding out. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, we have not been able to locate an owner.
Nadia received immediate veterinary treatment to have her wounds cleared and cleaned of flystrike. She then stayed at the Veterinary Clinic for a few days while she had her wounds redressed and was kept on fluids, painkillers and antibiotics.
We’re delighted to let you know that Nadia is very much on the road to recovery and is now well enough to be back in our care. Our fabulous Animal Care Team are ensuring she has all of the TLC she needs… and this loving, sweet, affectionate lady will be available for adoption as soon as her wounds are fully healed.
Nadia’s case was undoubtedly a shocking one and we’re so relieved we could be there to provide her with the life-saving care she so desperately needed …but her current veterinary costs are already at £279.94 and this amount will inevitably increase until she is back to 100% full health.
Can you help us with Nadia’s care costs? As a local and self-funded branch of the RSPCA, it is our responsibility to raise all our own funds so we can continue our vital rehabilitation and rehoming work. Without the generosity of our amazing supporters, we simply wouldn’t be able to help animals like Nadia and we want to make sure that we’re ALWAYS here to help local animals in need, whenever they need us.
