Lucy was rescued when her owner passed away, and sadly Lucy had been neglected recently. Even in her weakened condition, Lucy is still a loving and friendly golden, who loves to go on walks. With the expert care from her veterinarian and her compassionate foster mom, Lucy has improved already, but she has a long road ahead of her.
Lucy arrived underweight, so her foster mom is doing her best to fatten her up by giving her special meals twice a day and a mid-day snack. Luckily, her appetite is good! As you can see in her rescue photos, Lucy has some skin irritations and requires medical baths several times a week. Being the sweetheart she is, she seems to know these will help her and she tolerates her frequent washes like a real trooper.
Lucy needs ear and eye drops daily. Her foster mom says, “You would get a good laugh out of how tight she can hold her eyes shut!” Our GRRMF veterinary partner is optimistic regarding her eyes, but is concerned about her ears. Further testing will be necessary to determine her hearing ability and potential recovery.
As if that’s not enough for one sweetie pie to endure, Lucy’s hips seem to bother her and she is receiving additional medical treatments. With your support and her spirited determination, paired with a very loving foster mom, we will all help this precious girl mend.
She will recover; it will just take time, love and lots of care. Her medical bills will be high, but with the generous support of donors like you, one day soon we can call her Lucky Lucy!
