Before I went to bed Tuesday AM, I managed to get BHRR's Maggie May to pee and drink a bit. I could not interest her in eating any more food. Other than that she has not eaten or drank a thing until just now(2:00 AM Wednesday). I was able to get her up and outside just now where she peed once more and encouraged her to drink some. I also handfed her some wet food and got her to eat about 1/4 can.
I had talked to the Vet I saw on Monday when I was working on Tuesday as I was worried that perhaps due to complications from the Ehrlichiosis and that the records I had indicated a 10 day course treatment, not 28 or longer as per usual recommended protocol, this could be somewhat responsible for her current condition. I explained that i am very worried about BHRR's Maggie as something is just not 'normal' and the Vet agreed that even on Monday, she would pant after the slightest exertion.
So, we are going to do more bw and a urinalysis and start with that. I have fluids at home so that I can subq if needed. I will bring in some blood when I am working next at KAH or most likely have Sean bring it in as I am now not scheduled to work at KAH until Saturday.
I also emailed her fostermom in KY and was told that in fact, she was on Doxycycline for a few weeks and that she also handfed BHRR's Maggie May to get her to begin to eat and from there she tended to finish her bowl of food.
BHRR's Maggie May was just wiped all day today from her visit at KAH on Monday and I truly am so worried about her. 🙁 She is lethargic and more than the normal 'depressed' state we see many rescues arrive at BHRR with.
I promised to keep her fostermom updated and BHRR's Maggie May would welcome a sponsor or a BHRR Buddy to enable us to purchase more wet dog food to try and entice her to eat. She will not even eat boiled hamburger and rice. 🙁
Since she has arrive to BHRR, her Vet Bills have been over $200.
We are doing a 'MONEY MARATHON MOVEMENT' for Maggie May Fundraiser; whereby all monetary donations that come to BHRR over the next week will go directly to her USA bills incurred to date –
Fundraiser begins Monday June 13th @ 8:00 AM EST and shall end Monday June 20th @ 8:00 AM EST. All monies raised will be used to pay for the $400+ bill in TN, USA and then her $3,000+ bill in KY for her leg amputation. We are setting a tough high goal of $1,000 and plead to our supporters, followers, fans and believers to donate even $5.00 to her cause! No amount is too little!
