We ended up moving Dotti to our foster home on Nov 22 after her massage and she has been doing great! The massage definitely did her wonders (thanks again Mackenzie!). Her foster mom says she trots up to the barn for breakfast and dinner.
Our foster mom also notes that she has not had a seizure since being there - which means her last one was Nov 19 :) Given that all her tests and bloodwork were normal, it is possible that the two seizures she did experience were caused by either a pinched nerve or were a severe reaction to the stress of finding herself at the stockyard and subsequently the rescue.
She is clearly doing much better now and we are happy to see her in good spirits, both physically and emotionally.
She is located in Maple Ridge and is available for FREE to an approved home. She is available as a pasture pet only as she can no longer be ridden due to arthritis in her back and knees. Regardless, she is an absolute doll to be around and a very gentle companion. She would be a colorful addition to any herd!
If you are able to give her the retirement she more than deserves and a safe place to live out her days, please contact us or submit an adoption application today!
For now, she is soaking up all the love she can get with her foster mom.
