Upon the vet's advice, Lauricella kept Pippa's legs wrapped in bandages. But the next day, Lauricella got the shock of her life. When Lauricella changed Pippa's bandages, she discovered that Pippa's feet were shriveled up and had turned black. "I sent the pictures to both of the vets, and they said, 'Yup, that's frostbite,'" Lauricella said.
Pippa is still too young to have her legs amputated, so the vets advised Lauricella to keep Pippa's legs bandaged, and to change the bandages every day. If all goes well, the injured sections of Pippa's legs will naturally fall off. To speed up the healing process, Pippa is on antibiotics, and Lauricella treats her wounds with medical-grade manuka honey.
