Lily (formerly Lucy) entered the Bastrop County Animal Shelter on August 20th as a stray with a severe injury to one of her back legs. Bastrop Animal Rescue immediately rushed her to the Bastrop Veterinary Hospital where the doctors discovered that she had a fracture to the bones in her right hip. This fracture would require a surgical FHO repair (FHO = Femoral Head Ostectomy).

Lily has since received this surgery and she is doing great on her road to recovery, but now she needs to be treated for her heartworms. Lily tested high heartworm positive and she will need to receive the "full-kill" treatment to rid her body of the worms. Heartworms are parasitic worms that live in the heart and pulmonary arteries of an infected animal. The worms travel through the bloodstream—harming arteries and vital organs as they go. Several hundred worms can live in one dog for five to seven years. Heartworm disease is serious and can cause animals to die a slow painful death, if left untreated

The estimated cost for the pre-treatment blood work and chest x-rays, the two injection treatment, and the post-treatment care is $525. Your generous donations will enable us to treat Lily for heartworms and begin the search for her loving forever home. Any donation, big or small, is greatly appreciated!
