Chef barely survived a painful infection
When 3-month-old Chef arrived at Animal Haven, we didn't think she'd make it through the night. She had an upper respiratory infection so bad that one of her tiny eyes had ruptured, and on top of that, she was severely hypothermic, shaking, and anemic from a flea infestation. This tiny girl was in horrific shape.
We rushed her to the vet, where we feared we might have to say goodbye. But we knew we had to give her a chance. With some compassionate overnight care, medicine and fluids, Chef began to perk up. Her body temperature warmed and she began breathing regularly.
Chef is now back at Animal Haven, where she's receiving lots of love, frequent feedings and fluids to ensure she stays hydrated. Once she's healthy enough, her right eye will need to be surgically removed, but we're hopeful she'll be able to live a long, happy life in a loving home. Chef isn't quite out of the woods yet, but with your help, we can continue giving Chef the fighting chance she deserves.
