Ella's owner passed and there was no one that was able to give her a home. She came into our care with a happy smile but underlying medical issues.
At 10 years old Ella is morbidly obese with a soccer ball sized mass on her left hip. Luckily the mass does not appear to be cancerous, but due to the size and location, treatment is going to be a long and difficult road. Ella not only needs to lose weight, but the first step will be a process known as "debulking" in an effort to make future removal of the mass more manageable. There's even a strong possibility she may need an amputation in her future if the debulking fails. Ella is expected to have a long stay at our Marathon Campus through her weight loss and surgeries.
