Maya came into us suffering from Ehrlichia (tick fever). This is a very common issue we face here in the Galapagos. Maya’s owner brought her in, and a good thing she did because we found that Maya was incredibly anaemic and suffering from a lot of other problems as a result of the chronic infection, including a septic joint and skin lesions.
Once we realized the issue, Claudia brought down her other dog, Charlie, to save the day! Charlie donated his blood to his friend, Maya.
Both were absolutely golden in the clinic and the transfusion was a success.
Maya is still in the clinic recovering, she has a long road ahead of her but she is still here after the blood transfusion and will not stop fighting!
