Kanunu's Journey to a Better Life
Kanunu was brought into Rescue Ur Forever Friend with her 5 littermates on the evening of April 29, 2013. Much to the foster mom’s dismay, they were in terrible condition! Kanunu, being the smallest and sickest, was taken to the vet the next day.
After a vet check at Crossroads Veterinary Hospital, Kanunu was described as the worst case of malnutrition/starvation that the vet had seen (with the exception of Laila Ali, another RUFF rescue). Kanunu’s little back legs were tucked under her body and appear to have no muscle mass. The vet thinks that she must be having abdominal cramps with the way she is tucking her legs underneath her body.
Kanunu and her littermates are being treated for intestinal worms, hooks and roundworms, intestinal parasites, coccidia and giardia. They also have sarcoptic mange with a skin infection. The sarcoptic mange is infectious and special care will have to be adhered too so no other animals get this contagious mange.
Please consider donating to help towards the cost of Kanunu and her siblings care.
Update: May 1st, 2013 - morning
The foster mom reports that Kanunu is drank 400 ml of formula and 200 ml of water through the night. Stools have gone from bloody to brown liquid. She is still not eating solids. Foster mom will try cooking her some chicken and liver pudding after work. Overall she is showing improved awareness, crying for siblings or when her potty pads need changing. This baby girl is fighting to live!

As Kanunu feels better, she's been lonely. Her smallest brother Akoni (invaluable) is going to be her snuggle bunny tonight.
