Poor little Violet came into the shelter in a horrible state with severe matting all over her body and skin inflammation. She was covered in her own feces with a huge build up making it very painful and extremely uncomfortable for her. The bone on her tail was completely exposed and even under sedation it was painful to touch.
Our veterinary team worked very carefully to remove the matted fur and after she was cared for and monitored closely by our animal care staff to make sure she could go to the toilet on her own as she was unable to do so because of the matting. To see any animal this way is just so upsetting and totally unacceptable. With a huge team effort Violet made a full recovery and she was adopted by a wonderful lady who adored her the moment she met her.
