When Kanella was rescued she was in the worst condition imaginable… emaciated, skin and bones, and with injuries so terrible in one of her front legs that it had to be amputated.
Losing a leg did nothing to change Kanella´s will to live, but it wasn´t long after that her second front leg started causing problems. Small pain at first, then it progressively became worst to the point that she could barely walk. Her rescuer took her to the vet but she was only given painkillers.
She wasn´t getting any better… on the contrary.
Finally, after months of useless treatment her vet decided that the best option for Kanella was to be euthanised.
It was at that point that we were asked for help… is there anything that could be done for her? her rescuer asked…
We had to figure out the reason for Kanella´s condition. After a series of tests we found out that the damage on her wrist was due to Leishmaniasis.
The damage is, unfortunately, irreversible… Kanella´s only hope is surgery, a procedure called Arthrodesis that will fix her joint in place and allow her to use her leg normally.
KANELLA NEEDS TO GO INTO SURGERY… SHE CANNOT CONTINUE LIVING LIKE THIS…
After Kanella is operated and recovered she will be ready to be adopted. Kanella needs a beautiful family that loves her and protects her for the rest of her life… if you are that family, please write to me on firstname.lastname@example.org . Please include pictures of you and your animals.
