    Story

    Please join our group 'Izzy's road to recovery' on Facebook for more up detailed updates xx

    Update: This story is based on the initial attack Izzy since then has required another major surgery lasting 6 hours at The Royal Veterinary College in Potters Bar. She is still fighting. Please keep sharing & donating we cannot thank everyone enough. Izzy is still critical but we cannot give up it was nearly a week ago since this nightmare began.

    08/05/2019 - Izzy is coping without oxygen at the moment and is now on oral medicine. She is eating small amounts and drinking. She's had one of her drains removed as the fluid that was being produced has reduced. But she still has one in.

    Izzy' story:

    After many suggestions from the loving and caring people in this world we are setting up a crowdfunding page for Izzy’s vet bills. The vet bills are mounting by the day we have already paid lots and as Izzy is in intensive care it is costing £350 plus any other treatments a day. Izzy is being treated at the Attimore Veterinary Hospital in Welwyn Garden City and we cannot thank them enough for the amazing job they are doing at helping our Izzy to get better.

    On Sunday afternoon a male Staffordshire bull terrier and a female Staffordshire bull terrier escaped from a neighboring garden the result was Our West Highland Terrier Izzy was brutally attacked for 20 minutes.

    My mum, and two older ladies tried to rescue Izzy, but the male staff had her in a derelict shed cornered. Whilst trying to rescue Izzy the older ladies and my mum were nearly also bitten by the male dog. We were told the dogs were extremely aggressive and by the time we were able to rescue Izzy she had been left for dead and was bleeding out.

    Izzy’s injuries are around 28 puncture wounds, broken ribs, crushed breast plate and a dislocated sternum hence the full body cast. Due to these injuries Izzy is on many different drugs for pain and has fluids. Izzy required an operation, she had to be cut open and have her chest repaired as she was crushed by the bites from these two dogs and her muscles were torn so they also needed to be repaired. Izzy also has required all her wounds to be flushed out to help prevent infection. Once her swelling goes down Izzy may need another operation to place a metal plate in her sternum. The costs of this are unknown for now. We have so many people who have offered to help and who have been so kind to us. It’s amazing to know there is so many good people in this world. We’re completely overwhelmed by the support and kind messages we have received from the public and the love we have felt from every kind message.

    Izzy is fighting for her life and we can not give up on Izzy. Any donation small or big will make a massive difference and take the pressure off my parents who are trying to get her the best treatment she needs to fight through this and survive. So any help even if it is sharing the page would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    The people who own the dogs that attacked Izzy do not have any funds and have made it clear they have no money to contribute towards her vet costs.

      Izzy has a long road ahead of a 4-6 weeks recovery. The vets main concern is infections and to much moving around because the fractures may damage her insides She’s still got a way to go Can’t believe she’s made it home what a fighter thank you so much to everyone.
