Dip-Dab needed emergency veterinary care and was taken straight to our partner veterinary clinic, Vale Vets.
She had a severe flea infestation and was anemic, cold, and very weak. With a temperature of just 33*c the veterinary team needed to act fast if she was to have any chance of survival.
Dip-Dab was placed on a drip, treated for fleas, and given a blood transfusion.
The next 48 hours were going to be crucial for Dip-Dab and the team at CDCH were keeping everything crossed for good news.
Dip-Dab continued to receive intensive veterinary care over the weekend and as her temperature started to regulate, she became brighter and began eating. Things were starting to turn a corner.
We then received the call that we had all been waiting for, Dip-Dab was stable, bright and ready to be discharged.
CDCH welcomed her in to a safe warm bed and with expert care from our cattery and veterinary team, we continue to support her in her recovery.
At just 4 months old, Dip-Dab has already been through so much.
We are so grateful that she found her way to us and that we could offer her the help she needed to survive.
Dip-Dabs lifesaving veterinary treatment has cost in excess of £1000.
Every animal that comes into our care will cost an average of £372 to receive basic veterinary treatment. Sadly, many of the animals, like Dip-Dab will far exceed this amount due to being in very poor health.
