On Saturday we rescued a newborn that was stuck in the river. We named her Sidney in honor of Senator John Sidney McCain, who fought with us for the protection of the Salt River wild horses.
We tried to find her band to reunite her, to no avail. But it turns out there was a reason for her not being able to keep up with her band, as there usually is.
At first she was doing ok and drinking well, but her face started mysteriously swelling up and she is currently at the vet and not doing well. So far it is a mystery what is going on with her. She is on antibiotics, she is getting fluids, but no one knows the cause of the swelling. She now has a tube to keep her airways open.
We have had her inside, so a bite of some sort is not likely unless it has something to do with the red bumps she has had on her nose since we rescued her.
We need our supporters help with funds and lots of prayers for her please. Her estimated vet bills are $3500 so far. Thank you so very much for your support.
