    Story

    Evie was found in the road, having been hit by a car in Romania. She was taken to the vet who gave her painkillers and had to amputate her damaged paw. She was there for 14 days and they told the rescuers that she would now be fine, and was ready to be adopted.

    She came home to the UK 10th November, and immediately I could see that something wasn't right. There was a racid smell coming from her foot, and a small brown rotten lump, the size of a thumbnail, was literally hanging off by a thread. I took her to my vet who confirmed that it was badly infected. He gave her a strong shot of antibiotics, but advised that the whole leg would need to be amputated from the hip. The reason being, that as it's still long enough to use, she would try and the continued pressure and rubbing would cause constant pain and infections. It's common practise in the UK to remove the entire limb for this reason, and he was sad and frustrated that the original vet had not done this.

    So here we are, she's just arrived in a new home, trying to settle in and recover from her ordeal, and she needs another operation! She's a very young adult, probably barely one year old, and she's already been through so much.

    I don't have this sort of money, and it's a massive unexpected cost. I'm already struggling to find the money to buy a car after mine died a month ago, and I also have to have surgery myself in the coming weeks. I've tried to do something good, but it's just bitten me on the behind, and is now adding to existing stresses.

    Any help whatsover for this precious little girl would be so greatly appreciated. She's so sweet, and cuddly and has the most loving temperament, I just want to give her a chance to live a happy, healthy life. I usually donate the odd £10 or £20 to charity, and regularly help the rescuers who found Evie, it's only now that I really understand how much these donations mean, however big or small.

      The operation was a great success, and she's back home. She's not liking the collar, and clearly wants to chew the stitches off, so it's on tight as possible without asphixiation. But this wound is so much cleaner and neater than before, and thanks to pain relief, it really doesn't seem to be bothering her too much. The bill has come in at £1,200 as expected, as she had to stay in overnight due to the need to for stong pain relief. The vets have kindly agreed to contribute £650 from their charitable donations account towards the costs.

      Here's a better look at her foot. She's been to the vet today for a blood test before we book her in for the surgery. She was a little nervous, so they asked me to leave her with them to settle her first, and she was an angel, so I'm told
