Sponsor Animal Update: Sara
Sara: 3rd Quarter 2010
NEW TO PROGRAM! SARA was rescued from the debris of a fire. Sara had burns covering the surface of most of her body. She was dehydrated, extremely painful, and had harsh lung sounds from smoke inhalation. Sarah also had hematomas in both ears. Her eyelids were burned off as well as the tips of both ears. She underwent multiple extensive surgeries to repair her burned skin. Sara was also treated for pneumonia secondary to smoke inhalation. She will need medications for her eyes for the rest of her life since her eyelids were damaged and she can no longer produce adequate tears to hydrate her eyes. Her lungs may be more sensitive to developing infections or allergic problems in the future. Since most of Sarah’s skin is scarred and she is not able to regrow hair, she will wear sunscreen when outside.
