**Appeal for Paiton & Paisley**
Can you help?
Paiton and Paisley came into our (Band of Rescuers) care on 12/3/17 having been rescued from less than idea conditions, exhausted and suffering. As suspected, both are requiring ongoing and intensive veterinary treatment- and we need your help!
•Paiton is around one year old, she came to us with a heavy tapeworm burden and cat flu. After becoming acutely unwell an ultrasound scan revealed she was suffering from Pyometra and a related bladder infection. Pyometra is a life threatening condition that must be treated quickly and aggressively. Immediate surgery was required to remove her infected uterus and she began antibiotic therapy. Paiton is recovering well but has since gone on to develop gastrointestinal problems requiring ongoing monitoring & care.
•Paisley is around 2-3 years old, she also came to us with a heavy worm burden and a respiratory wheeze. Initially it was thought that she was heavily pregnant, having been seen by the vet we were preparing for her to give birth in about 2 weeks time.
Sadly, Paisley also became acutely unwell, an ultrasound scan revealed she was not pregnant but was in fact also suffering from a much more severe case of Pyometra, requiring immediate surgery and antibiotic treatment.
The vet did not expect Paisley to survive but did everything he could to give her the best possible chance. Despite her slow progress in her recovery she does continue to fight. We want to do everything we can to give her the best possible chance of survival and to do that we need your help. She's currently requiring ongoing treatment and blood tests.
Paiton and Paisleys' ongoing veterinary treatment has hit us hard. We are funded solely by public donations and cannot continue the work we do without your help.
