New Arrival: Inka
New emergency arrival today @ BCWR, this is 4 to 5 week old Inka.
Inka is dreadfully ill and whilst we don’t have a clear picture of her history what we do know is that she was a very neglected owned pet at some point.
On arrival this teatime at the rescue Inka was barely conscious, extremely dehydrated, hypothermic. Her temperature was just 32.2c, which is the lowest recorded body temperature that we have ever dealt with.
Her gums are the same colour as her teeth and she cannot lift her head up at all.
Inka is unlikely to survive.
She has had emergency treatment including fluids, glucose, antibiotics and is now warming up.
We have a long night ahead of nursing and intensive care despite her poor prognosis.
