Background Story:

Lorraina is a two year old orange DMH female with very cute freckles on her nose. A resident at an apartment complex noticed her wandering around the parking lot. She had a severely injured tail and wounds to her lower back. It’s unknown whether the two injuries were related or how they were sustained – could have been frostbite, auto injury, chemical burn… But thankfully the resident brought her to Bolton Vet were she was given the care she needed. Unfortunately the tail had to be amputated due to the severity of its injury. Either related to the injuries or its own problem, she has been diagnosed with hyperestesia. Read more about it here.

Current Status:

After consulting with a neurologist, we started her on a new course of medications. Staff has noticed some improvement so we remain optimistic! Plus, her new soft cone is a lot more comfortable and she doesn’t even act like she has one on.
