HER HEAD RECEIVED A BRUTAL BLOW. The impact broke her right jaw. Since then, Laika’s life has been hell. Day after day a bone callous formed that ended up locking her jaw closed and pressing on her eye.
During all this time, Laika could only try to eat and take in water the best she could. She cannot open her mouth and is only capable of pressing her tongue out a little on one side. That she has survived is a miracle. In the meantime, the bone has pressed on the eye and destroyed it. Hunger, thirst and agonising pain… that is a summary of Laika’s life.
With her jaw broken and locked closed, unable to eat or drink and abandoned in the middle of nowhere, LAIKA had no hope of surviving on her own.
Until now… Laika has been rescued and urgently brought to us for the surgery that will save her life.
LAIKA’S ONLY HOPE IS MAXILLOFACIAL SURGERY – A RECONSTRUCTION PROCESS THAT WILL ENABLE HER TO OPEN HER MOUTH AGAIN.
P.S. When LAIKA has recovered, she will need a wonderful family to care for her and love her. If you think that family could be yours, PLEASE WRITE TO V.LARKHILL@GMAIL.COM, including pictures of your family and animals.
