UPDATE: Pinkie is in critical condition - the last picture shows how she came to The Arrow Fund - totally emaciated. She weighs 6.6 pounds. Upon arrival to TAF she required a blood transfusion immediately. Her PCV ( packed blood volume ) was 15 - 20 is usually the number when transfusions are done - especially if clinical signs are shown. Her PCV number went up to 25 then back to 19 and they currently are at 21. Pinkie is showing signs of early renal failure now. She ate initially a small amount and now for the last 36 hours she is refusing to eat. Her blood pressure has been running high - so a blood pressure medication has been added. Emergency staff also pulled a sample of her spleen on day 2 to send off for testing.
Every shirt, hoodie and bracelet can help save Pinkie's life! We have partnered with The Arrow Fund to create this week's animal saving t-shirt design!
