NAOMI – Update – Her Leg was Amputated and Now She is Looking for Her Furever Home

Naomi was found by a mail carrier in Chesney (near Frankenmuth); Naomi had a horrible leg wound. She was taken to a nearby veterinary clinic where the veterinarian said Naomi had been attacked and was missing a bone in the back leg. Naomi was then released with an open leg wound, no bandages and no pain meds. The woman who rescued her and took her to the vet said that she wasn’t home enough to properly care for her and was asking for someone to take Naomi in. Our Board member, Dee, tried to think of someone that could take her. The more she looked at Naomi’s photo, she knew she needed help. Dee didn’t know what else to do, so she sent a message to Gina and Gina said to bring Naomi to her. The rescuer drove down and delivered her and her leg looked absolutely horrible – again, NO BANDAGE and NO pain meds. Dee texted Gina immediately and Naomi was started on pain meds. A couple of days later Naomi was able to get into Moore Veterinary and got the ‘works’, as well as a bandage on her leg — that helped her tremendously. Naomi also had a very ‘weird’ intestinal issue that the vet saw on an x-ray but after putting her under, Naomi was able to clear her bowels and the issue was resolved. Naomi was also extremely anemic and she received treatment for that. The Frankenmuth vet had advised that Naomi had a chip on her knee bone and said it would heal but she would walk with a limp. But, unfortunately, after x-rays were taken at Moore’s, it was determined that Naomi’s knee is totally blown out and her achilles is torn and the rest of her ligaments are torn. The doctor at Moore’s believed Naomi was probably hit by a car and recommended amputation. Because Moore Veterinary does not do amputations, we referred the x-rays to Dr. Z at Orion Animal Hospital and she confirmed the Moore veterinarian’s diagnosis. Naomi had her surgery February 4. Please remember her in your prayers. Dee and her husband, Rick, both tell me how very sweet and deserving this baby is to be given a second chance at life. There is no doubt that Dee will find Naomi the very best home and family. The very sad reality is that without the financial support of our followers, Naomi would probably have had to be euthanized. So, a huge thank YOU!If anyone is interested in Naomi once she recovers, please contact Dee at: dee.4paws1heart@gmail.com – diana.4paws1heart.org/donations/
