I have a wonderful filly that I adopted after she was left to starve by her previous owners. Hope spent 90 days in a sling, and for several days we didn't think she would make it. When she was brought into the clinic she was 11 months old and should have weighted 700 pounds, she only weighted in at 300. When I first saw her it broke my heart, I didn't think she would make it through the night. Her legs were swollen, and she had lost most of her hair. Her loving vet didnt give up hope on her and neither did she. Now she is fat and sassy, living the life of a beloved pet and friend.
