this little girl in your prayers:
Read about her beginnings/her parents and siblings
Short haired Havanese, born Sept. 18/06
Karma was born normal, except much much
smaller than her siblings. She was doing everything normal, till she
reached about 8 weeks, when the foster Mom (at that time in California) heard
her scream. She thought maybe the other puppies jumped on her..but all of
sudden she could not walk properly or hold her head right.
Karma @ 13 weeks
At 13 weeks, Karma weighed just over 2
lbs, while all her other siblings weighed close to 7 lbs, at this time, Karma
was having great difficulty walking. She was medically evaluated, but the
vet wanted to give her time, he was uncertain what her damage or medical problem
was. His prayer was to wait, as xrays just would not determine the
answer. Karma returned to her foster home, with Sandra, who loved her,
prayed for her, and as time can be a healer, she is getting better.
Karma @16 weeks
Karma thanks everyone for their prayers!
Updates as we know them...keep this darling girl in your thoughts. I believe she will have a normal life...that is "MY PRAYER"
Jan.20/07: Sorry for no updates, Karma has not been to the vet yet, as the weather in the NW had been horrendous. She is scheduled for the 22nd...more later.
18 weeks old (5 lbs)
This precious girl had her visit. She is for the most part acting pretty normal. Though she holds her head at an odd angle when picked up, and doesn't manage to run for as long as a puppy of her age. The Vet, checked her neck carefully, all the bones are connected properly. In order to do an x-ray, she will need to be asleep. Since her progression has been upward, he will x-ray her in 4 weeks, when she goes in for her spay. He felt confident enough to start her puppy shots...and now let nature and growth pave her way, for now.
Karma has now been spayed along with her shots. While she was under anesthia, she was x-rayed, the x-rays were sent to the specialist, and everything is completely normalall bones developed properly. Advise for now, is to put her on 12.5 mg of rimadyl for 10 days, to see if this brings more of an improvement for her neck. If so, acupuncture will be the next step. So stay tuned.
Karma is now 24 weeks, and still weighs
just over 6 lbs..small little girl.
Her story in one way ends now, as she is in her FOREVER home. She will stay with her Foster Mom, Sandra. After taking everything into consideration, and the love and time spent with this girl, Sandra could not let her go. She is a very lucky lil one to have this great home. Karma continues to improve...
