Little Ruth

Registering to Give as you Live Online will help us to care for animals like Little Ruth, who came into our Wingletang Centre after looking very lost on Dartmoor.

As soon as we picked up Little Ruth, we realised that she was in a lot of discomfort with her ear. Her head was on one side and was continually shaking. Her ear was also double the size of her other ear from what looked like a haematoma. Ruth’s ears were very dirty and inflamed, so we assumed they were badly infected.

We brought her back to the centre and immediately scanned for a microchip, but she was not identichipped. Whilst this condition is not classed as life threatening, we felt her welfare was being compromised because of the extreme discomfort she was in. We took her to Westmoor Veterinary Hospital so that the haematoma could be drained. However, over the course of the week the ear started to double in size again, so we felt that the only action we could take was surgery.

Ruth’s surgery aimed to remove the haematoma, prevent recurrence and retain the natural appearance of the ear. We are delighted that Little Ruth underwent this operation and came back to the centre safe, well and most importantly, pain free, before going to her loving forever home!

By signing up to Give as you Live today, you could help more animals in need like Little Ruth!
