We’re appealing for your help to find out more about an unwell dog found on a doorstep yesterday evening.

A member of the public kindly called us and brought her in to our rescue centre. On arrival, our staff quickly rushed her to the vet. We have called her Kylie, and we believe she is only a few years old. 

As you can see from the photos, Kylie is emaciated and weak. She was passing a lot of bloody diarrhoea when she arrived, and this has continued through the night at the vets. 

Kylie has been on IV fluids overnight and is being kept comfortable whilst we await the results of blood and faecal samples.

Our vets believe her condition isn't the sole result of not being fed enough food, but may be caused by a medical condition which has sadly gone untreated for a while. The most likely condition is a malabsorption issue, where the body is unable to digest food properly or absorb the vitamins and minerals it needs. 

If anyone has any information about how Kylie came to be in this condition, please contact us on 01443 226659. It would also be really beneficial to our vet and Kylie's diagnosis if we knew how long she has been unwell. 

It is going to be a long road to recovery for Kylie but both we and our vets will do everything possible to help her. She is the sweetest little lady. The costs of Kylie's treatment so far is around £750 but it is likely to increase as she needs further treatment.
