|The Story of Lilly
Last update 01/01/2024
Lilly, a Corgi/Cattle Dog mix, was owner surrendered for euthanasia, as her owner had medical issues that meant she could no longer care for her. A family member took her in, but didn’t realize how sick Lilly was. Lilly and another dog had lived their entire lives outside with no vet care other than their original puppy vaccines and being spayed. Lilly had nails so long they had grown into her pads and she was excessively drooling. Upon exam by an emergency vet, she had her nails cut and mouth checked. It seemed she needed dental work and had an abrasion that may have been caused by a foreign body at some time. She was given an injection of antibiotics.
The family member contacted the rescuer about fostering her and she was taken in. The rescuer had her examined by another vet and it was determined that she has some form of an immune mediated skin disorder causing severe ulcerations in her mouth, whole body skin eruptions and sluffing of her foot pads as well as wide spread secondary infections. Treatment was started and she responded well – even though the treatment is painful. Lilly likely has erythema Multiforme, vasculitis or other immune mediated skin disorder and will require ongoing care. Lilly has a potential adopter – with the person who adopted her companion from her original home. Due to Lilly’s ongoing needs, CorgiAid considered her a tough case, and she was granted full eligible care for the rest of her life.
