New Arrival: Little Puddle

This is little Puddle.

Puddle came to us as an emergency admission as she was failing to thrive. It would seem that Puddle has a number of neurological issues including ataxia, sight issues and reduced mentation which is likley to be caused by a condition called hydrocephalus. Hydrocephalus is the abnormal dilation, or expansion, of the ventricular system due to an increased volume of spinal fluid, also known as “water on the brain”.

We are looking to confirm this with scans and other diagnostics however little Puddle is not strong enough at this time. She is under nourished and less than half the body weight she should be. We are in touch with specialists and receiving great support in the meantime to provide Puddle with all the supportive and nutritional care she needs.

Puddle is currently on our critical care ward in intensive care. Obviously Puddle is not in any way being considered for adoption.a
