Blanche was discovered on the streets one morning in Macon, Georgia in a great deal of pain and unable to move her back legs. Thank goodness she was brought to All About Animals, and amazing local rescue group. After their usual veterinarian was unable to diagnose the problem, they brought her to the University of Georgia, where they bring their worst cases. At UGA, Blanche was diagnosed with discospondylitis, an inflammation of the intervertebral disc and adjacent vertebral bodies. She was put on an expensive 8-week course of antibiotics, anti-inflammatory meds, and pain meds.
Blanche was lucky enough to be moved to a loving foster home, where she needed to be walked with a harness supporting her back half. She is slowing getting stronger and better, and has come a long way since she was found in the streets! She may never walk normally again, but her foster mother says she was a sweet disposition and is friendly to everyone she meets. And her legs don't stop her when she sees a cat in the backyard!
Thank you so much for your support, which is helping pay for Blanche's medicine and care until she finds her fur-ever home.
