Our Campaign Story

ends 07 Aug 2018, 11:59 PM

Angel may look like she's all skin and bones, but the look in her eyes tells us that she still wants to stay by her 70-year-old caregiver's side.
The 10-year-old schnauzer is currently in critical condition, with her body deteriorating day by day. She is extremely thin for her size, with her mouth of abscess, and teeth so rotten that the vet could pull them out by hand. Blood tests reveal a startlingly high white blood cell count, an indication that her body is fighting against severe infection. Angel is also suffering from dehydration, which may cause an increase in her blood urea level, pointing towards the possibility of kidney disease in its early stages. She also has very low albumin level, likely due to severe malnutrition and inflammation.
Fortunately, her X-ray did not show significant bone complications. However, there is a thickening of bones closer to the lump which requires further observation. Given her unstable condition, with her temperature dipping to 36, the vet recommended that we start plasma transfusions immediately. Angel has undergone her first plasma transfusion, and requires continuous medical care and attention. We are currently using heat packs to ensure that her body temperature does not fall to critical levels, and it has been steadily increasing at a very slow pace.
Her next plasma transfusion will take place in 2 days' time. We are now appealing to all kind souls to help us raise funds for her vet bills.
