One of our rescue partners in Austin, TX sent us the screenshot below and asked if we could help. They rescued her after seeing the post. She was found on the side of a road on the hottest day of summer panting, drooling, and unsteady. The rescue’s vet determined she was very dehydrated, elderly and blind. After several weeks of recovery, Jilly was transported to us in September 2022.
Our vet estimates she’s 14-16 years old. She had an upper respiratory infection and severe infection in both ears when she arrived, which were treated immediately. She was then checked by our animal ophthalmologist who found she has detached retinas due to high blood pressure that went unchecked. She is now on high blood pressure meds in hopes that no other issues arise and there's hope she MIGHT regain her eyesight.
Jilly is feeling so much better and we're so grateful she was found in time. She's a sweet, gentle girl who loves her fluffy, heated bed, treats, and a big meal. Did we mention she eats like a horse?
