No one knows how long Lucy laid in the middle of a Houston street waiting and hoping someone would help her. There she was – blind, helpless, starving and dying, yet no one thought she was worth stopping for – that is until Thursday when ThisisHouston changed Lucy’s dismal looking fate.
Lucy was rushed to VERGI 24/7 where the eight-year-old dog was administered life-saving treatment.
” She is diabetic, has fluid in her abdomen. Her hematocrit is below 9% which is very bad and dangerous. She is extremely dehydrated and anemic, so she will need AT LEAST 2 blood transfusions. VERGI wants to hold her for a minimum of 3 days due to all there is to do. She has a UTI, and cataracts in both eyes. She’s on a feeding tube so she can get fed hourly. On a body scale of 1-9, they put her at a 1.
Lucy has lots going on. But we will remain hopeful for her. We will continue to update.”
