3/7/23 – Kia was rescued by a man after she was found in an abandoned home in an area known for animals who have been abused and neglected. He had posted a request for help because he could not afford to pay for any medical care. A friend of 4 Paws 1 Heart, whom we’ve helped with other rescues, contacted us to see if we could cover any medical treatment needed. There was a concern that Kia may have been suffering from Pyometra which is most common in older dogs after many years of estrus cycles without pregnancy; the uterine wall undergoes the changes that promotes the disease.
Kia was seen the next day and was spayed; she did have the beginning of pyometra which was treated. She was also vaccinated and tested for heart worm. Thankfully everything went well and Kia is now with her rescuer receiving lots of love and care. – diana.
