She was picked up in the street, lactating and bleeding vaginally. We have no idea if she gave birth, or miscarried, or what, but the vet thinks she has a severe uterine infection. Unfortunately she also came up heartworm positive. The vet had to send out bloodwork and do chest x-rays, because if the heartworms were actually in her heart, putting her under would be too risky. The good news is that her heart is clear. She gets emergency spayed today, and then if she makes it through that, she will have to start heartworm treatment.

Her name is Carmela, Ray of Sunshine (yeah, don't ask).

She also has a growth on one back leg, a small growth on one of her toes, her ears are split, and she is missing a lot of teeth. So she has a lot stacked against her, and she could use some positive vibes sent her way!

She looks like a sweetie. Poor thing. I really hope that she recovers well and lives out her days happily.

Poor baby. Hopefully everything goes really well today and she can get on the road to recovery. She does look very sweet.

Thanks, everyone! She made it through her spay surgery. Unfortunately, she is weak from the infection, and the heartworms are pretty advanced, so it is still touch and go.

Poor girl! Even if she doesn't make it through, at least she is in a place where people care about her. But I totally hear Christina Aguilera's 'Fighter' when I look at her.

Poor mama dog. Her pups probably died or she didn't care for them for some reason.

She is staying at the vet for observation until Friday. Once she is a bit recovered, we'll have to start thinking about treating the heartworms. It's a harsh treatment, poor thing, and she'll have to be on cage rest for months. And the worst part is this all could have been prevented.

Carmela is back at the shelter, recovering from her spay (with the dreaded cone of shame). Unfortunately there currently is a shortage of the heartworm treatment drug (Immiticide), and it will take a little while for the vet to obtain some. So she is going to be started on heartgard, which will start killing off some of the worms. She will have to be at the vet and monitored when she receives it, as any time heartworms are killed off, they can end up in the lungs and it can be fatal. I'm sure she appreciates all your good wishes!
