Mavroula, RIP…

A few words from Mavroula’s foster home:
“Today, sadly we decided, after the opinions of 4 vets that the kindest thing for Mavroulla was euthanasia. This is not a decision taken lightly. We have spent the last 6 weeks caring for her, treating her and hoping for improvement.
Unfortunately the injuries which, at the beginning we believed treatable proved more severe and as she was not recovering as well as expected we took her for another opinion. As we know this vet never gives up hope until there is no hope left, we had to respect his opinion today.
We considered the possibility of her travelling to another country to be cared for, but not healed for the rest of her life.
As she was incontinent, she required constant cleaning, her walking was a strange lurching, ending in collapse and her rear end was emaciated. Having cared for her for 6 weeks it was an extremely difficult decision to make but we feel that this was the only humane alternative for Mavroulla.
For those of you who do not agree with us I would ask you to consider if it was yourself, lying seriously injured, unable to control your bodily functions and relying on someone to empty your bladder, wash you constantly trying to keep you free of wounds, for the rest of your abnormal life, what would you choose?” If you have any questions, please contact CAWG via info@CretanAnimalWelfare.org
