Unfortunately, Fern’s exact medical diagnosis is still unclear. Her issues could have been caused from inbreeding, damage from her seizure or the result of not being fed a proper diet. The vets put her on some medications they hope will help, and have also scheduled an MRI for her to see if they can learn anything else about her health issues.
In the meantime, Fern is now happily settling into life at the sanctuary. Due to her issues, her rescuers are in the process of creating a special space for her, complete with air-conditioning and special carpeting to help her get around more easily. Her former family may not have cared enough about her, but Fern’s new rescue family is making sure she’s as comfortable and happy as possible.
