Savannah was dumped outside a supermarket!
This is Savannah. Second Chance Pet Adoption League picked her up from a crowded shelter after she was dumped in front of a supermarket! She is skin and bones and her eyes were crusted shut. Her perineum was caked with so much feces she had trouble going to the bathroom. She smelled like she was rotting. Despite her condition she was sweet and trusting right away, trying to rub her painful eyes on her rescuers for relief.
I did not want to share Savannah’s story with you until I knew she could survive this. She was rushed to their vet hospital, Animal Clinic of Morris Plains. The doctor examined Savannah and was shocked to find out she is only 5 years old and has functional eyes under all the crusts! What a miracle!
Savannah is eating well and her bloodwork was normal. She was suffering from untreated chronic dry eye for a long time until the discharge matted over and sealed her eyes shut. After nurses shaved her down you could see just how destroyed her body is. Savannah is a fighter and with proper care she can live a long happy life!
UPDATE: Her ultrasound showed some signs that she could have some gi disease like ibd so we are still figuring out, she had some diarrhea and doesn’t always eat as well as she should
