I received a email about a emaciated blind diabetic senior rottie girl in Tazewell, VA sitting out in a penon 9/1/14. She was not getting insulin and neighbors were feeding her. After some scambling in less than 24 hrs she was at the er vet in Roanoke, VA. Connie Hylton was the angel who stepped up and offered to drive 2 hrs to pick up Zena and cover vetting till we could raise donations for Zena.  

Upon arrival at the er vet we found out Zena had DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis and had to be on continuous insulin and fluids until stable) her sugar was 670. The good news was no other organ damage was found other than cataracts on her eyes from the neglect. She only weighed 40 lbs and probably should be about 90 lbs. She was stabilized and released to go home on 9/4/14 with Connie who is also fostering this sweet girl. After lots of generous donations thru paypal and directly to the er vet most of it was covered!!!

Zena still needs follow up visits to get her sugar regulated, special food, insulin, testing supplies, vaccines and hw/fecal tests which will be done at Highlands Veterinary Clinic in Selma, Va. 540-862-3000 donations can be made directly to the vet clinic for Zena c/o Connie Hylton.

On Zena's eyes she has 1 mature in one eye and a smaller one in the other eye. She is very disoriented from going abruptly blind. Soon as she puts on some weight and her diabeties is regulated she will see a eye specialist and surgery to remove the cataracts. Eye specialist info will be posted later for donations directly to them.

Thank you for all your help so we can help this sweet girl recover and find a loving home like she deserves!

If you are interested in adopting Zena,keep in mind she will need to be on insulin for life and at this time she prefers to be the only animal [this may change once she is feeling better and can see]. Email angelwinstonspackrescue@gmail.com if you would like more information.

Thank you for all your help!
