Lanna was transported from Mexico after being found with her nose missing.
This poor girl was just transported from Hermisillo, Mexico to Arizona by Little Lotus Rescue. They saved this sweet girl and transported her to the states by car to rush her to the emergency vets. Lanna will be able to recovery but it will a lot of care.
She is missing her nose along with one of her ears. We have had a similar case from LLR were a dog in the exact same situation, missing nose and missing ears.
The best explanation doctors in the states can give is that Lanna's body was so depleted which means that it only took care of ONLY the most vital organs to keep her alive. This meant that her ear and nose had shriveled up and fallen off without any blood circulation. Her nose and ear were not cut off.
With Lanna's nasal cavity gone there are many things that need to happen to make sure she can recover from this traumatic ordeal. Medically she did test negative for Valley Fever but tested positive for Ehrlichia. X-rays were taken and there is no significant findings. Her gum color is pale but doctors will wait to do other bloodwork. Her wounds on her body are healing along with the remnants of her ears. She started wagging her little tail and eating which are both small steps in her recovery!
We have created the animal-saving products below to help raise the funds to cover Lanna's transport to the states along with her emergency care. Please consider purchasing one of these items and share her story to help give this baby girl the second chance she deserves!
Little Lotus Rescue & Sanctuary
Little Lotus Rescue & Sanctuary is an organization in southern Arizona that changes the fate of homeless animals. The volunteer-run rescue lifts the animals out of the shelter system, placing them instead in loving, temporary foster homes. Many of these animals are ill, injured, or suffering from malnourishment, so we attain the necessary medical care to return them to health. Every animal is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Loving foster parents, Veterinarians, and an certified animal behaviorist help them overcome physical and psychological issues to again be healthy, happy pets ready for their permanent homes.
