NURSED BACK TO HEALTH
FINS, FEATHERS, AND FUR
On April 16, we had Ferrari admitted to the Manila East Veterinary Clinic under the care of Dr. Lopez. Angela assisted us and gave Ferrari an X-ray, stool exam, nebulization, Roborant injection, antibiotic injection, and oral antibiotic. Ferrari spent three weeks in the clinic. During that time, she gradually recovered, becoming more responsive and starting to eat on her own. Her stool exam tested positive for worms, but after treatment, the problem went away. The three weeks later, although she was still weak, she had recovered enough to be taken home. On May 7, Ferrari came home to us, along with a set of instructions from Dr. Lopez on how to nurse her back to health. Armed with these instructions, we cared for Ferrari. Slowly but surely, she fully recovered. Ferrari was a fighter – and a ferocious one at that. Despite all her health problems, she for her life and came out victorious. On June 29, Ferrari was fully recovered. She is alive and well.
