Friday saw the arrival of ‘Mary’ from Burtonwood. Mary, although in good condition otherwise, has the worst case of feather mites we have seen, having gone untreated for so long, they now effect right up her legs, belly and chest, she has some really nasty sores from rubbing herself.
Mary is only rising 4 years old and was due to be put to sleep, as her loaner was struggling to afford to keep her, never mind pay vet bills. Once aware of the situation her owner was agreeable to her coming here and paid for her to be transported here. The yard where Mary was also very kindly clubbed together lots of useful items which they sent along with her, which we are very grateful for.
Monday morning will see our vet Luke start her treatment, with the help of our lovely supporter Fran Randles clipping her, so we can get to her skin for more effect relief of the itching.
As always, any help towards Mary’s care is gratefully received, you can find out the many ways to donate on our donate page.
