Coco: Embedded collar and boat rope cut so deep into her neck, practically decapitating her!
Just when you think a dog who has been through hell on earth, can not possibly endure anymore challenges, you see things like this. Our sweet girl Coco who Second Chance Rescued saved early last week, with an embedded collar and boat rope cut so deep into her neck, practically decapitating her, faces another setback.
Coco was found tied in a yard, by animal control after neighbors smelled, what they thought to be a rotting dead animal. In fact it was not a dead animal, but Coco's rotting flesh, where the rope and collar had been so tight it cut into her neck. The owners of the home where she was is under investigation. We will keep everyone updates. For now we are focusing on saving this babies life.
Rescuers immediately had Coco rushed to their emergency vet partner for critical treatment and removal of the collar and rope. She is in critical condition. While she was undergoing surgery, the doctors noticed an infected mammary tumor which had burst and needed immediate attention. As you can see here in the pictures, her infection was severe, and are away at her flesh.
Coco was so critical, she required 2 blood transfusions, and was at risk for becoming septic. Coco has been hospitalized all week, and she is still not out of the woods yet. We need to ask you for your support in helping with her medical care. Coco can use your prayers, shares, and positive healing vibes. She deserves a second chance, and nothing but love.
We have partnered with Second Chance Rescue to help raise the funds needed for Coco's recovery. Help us save another innocent victim of abuse. Please, if you are able, consider purchasing an item below to help save Coco's life.
