Ginny has a wound that fully encircles her neck, the embedded chain needed to be cut off with bolt cutters and the ring had to be dissected out. The wound was fully infected. Between the infection of the wound and the feces matted to her skin she smelt terrible when she came into her foster home.

She is being seen for daily wound management that includes laser and hydrotherapy for a minimum of 2 weeks.

Through all of the pain and uncertainty is is experiencing she is still such a sweet soul and learning to trust that there are people who love and care for her.

Update: On Tuesday, Sept 5th the caring team at Orchard Veterinary Care found that it was time to close up the wound on Ginny’s neck. While she is missing hair and has a lot of stitches she is getting to heal and her foster home says that she is a complete sweetheart!

Update: On Sept 18th Ginny had her stitches removed, spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. We are happy to share that she is ready to find her forever home!

Final Update: Ginny is thriving and loving her life with her forever home.
