Cindy Scarlett came to GRRMF suffering from malnutrition, a urinary tract infection (UTI), and mite infestation. Lab work diagnosed her with EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) and she requires pancreatic enzymes mixed with wet food and a low fat diet. Her special needs to ensure this potentially deadly disease stays in check and she has the consistent care and monitoring, Cindy has been selected as a GRRMF Sanctuary pup as of April 1.
Cindy continues to gain confidence but still needs the back up and reassurance of her mom and sister Hazel. Her health has improved, achieving weight gain to 50 lbs in January and in continuous need of her special diet, medication and enzymes to survive. To support her well-being requires a lifetime budget of approximately $300 per month to continue her progress and maintain her health. Her mom continues to work on her commands, recognizing her name, eye contact and helping Cindy relax and trust. Each day she gets a little more comfortable with things she has reacted to in the past and is developing into a typical two-year old sometimes “forgetting” her behavior training. She loves her foster sister and is always by her side ready to play.
Each night she THANKS each of you and GRRMF for embracing her and helping her survive. With her belly full, she is beginning to feel better and she is experiencing the loving interaction of a human – what a wonderful feeling that must be to a once scared and starving youngster! How priceless is that!!
