Promise     pawprints5.gif   pawprints5.gif   pawprints5.gif   pawprints5.gif


Despite all our efforts, Promise's bowel problems worsened.  She enjoyed her last few days with us in Room 3, where she could go outside and sit high atop a haven.  We said good-bye on 3/17/12.  Sweet dreams, pretty Promise.

Biography:         Promise was a stray who came to us via the SAINT rescue organization in Wyoming, IA.  Promise's main problem is likely a combination of a spinal injury and pelvic injury.  Her hips are fine and if there is a fracture in the pelvis, it isn't bad enough to cause the problems we are seeing in the way she poops.  Most of her colon has been very full of almost-hard stool.  Fortunately it isn't too distended, which can cause real problems.  She's been on a motility drug and stool softener since she arrived.  Promise also has early kidney disfunction, but not bad enough to affect how she feels.  She has one broken canine which doesn't seem to bother her.  Whatever injury broke that tooth also likely tore her lip pretty well to the right of the nose (actually, a pretty common injury).  Only time will tell if her neurological issues will improve, as well as the kidney issues.  In the meantime she is getting lots of love and is so very sweet, given all she's been through.  We wish she could tell us about her past so we could help her more quickly, but she's definitely looking better already and we're hopeful for a full recovery.
Special Needs:  Spinal injury causing constipation and mild neurologic problems
