PLEASE HELP MEMPHIS
Abandoned in churchyard, sick with heart worms, mange and ehrlichiosis, and a fracture from being hit by a car twice
Memphis was abandoned in a churchyard in Memphis, Tennessee on Friday (7/6/18). She was scared, sick and covered in ticks. A call went out on Facebook asking if anyone could rescue her that day. Cali’s K9 Rescue in Nova Scotia, Canada said they would take her into their rescue if someone local would get Memphis from the churchyard. Someone did get Memphis and brought her to the vet. That’s when it was discovered that Memphis has heart worms, mange and e. canis (ehrlichiosis). The latter is a tick-borne disease, and in later stages can cause serious health problems. The vet staff pulled 30(!) ticks off her.
Memphis is now being treated for all 3 conditions. She will be staying with a wonderful, experienced foster in Tennessee for several months as she’s nursed back to health, then will be transported north to Cali’s.
