Philomena Update

Many of you will have seen Philomena, our latest admission that arrived at the rescue last Sunday.
Poor Philo just looks like a battered old stray who has spent years fighting for survival in the streets.
The truth is Philomena is only around 4 months old.

It has been confirmed that Philomena is both deaf and blind, she had structural damage to her spine causing nerve compression also affecting her bladder function.
There is a huge piece in the jigsaw missing and either Philomena has been involved in a traumatic incident, has congenital issues or indeed both to cause her symptoms.
Philomena will need months of veterinary care, intensive and supportive care here at the rescue, rehabilitation and intensive physio.

Today Philomena spent the day in the vets for a review and together we decided that she would benefit from being on intravenous fluids over the weekend to aid her recovery and to give her the best chance possible.
This weekend we will be nursing Philomena intensively in our Pawspital.

Thankyou to everyone who has already donated toward her care …. If you would like to support her in her long recovery journey please click the link below.
