Past, Present & Future
Faith was brought and surrendered to SEER. She was close to about 300lbs under weight and was said to have a tack in her hove since she couldn’t walk on her rear right leg. After cleaning her hooves and finding no tack, SEER’s vet was promptly requested to check her. She was diagnosed with a locked patella. With many attempts to unlock it, it was determined the only course of action was to have it surgically unlocked.
We, along with Faith, made the trip to AVS Equine Hospital in Florida to see the vet. Unfortunately, it turned out to be worse. On top of Faith’s locked patella, she had a severely dislocated hip. After much discussion with Dr Fisch, it was determined Faith’s recovery and ability to lead a normal, pain free life was incredibly slim.
Faith passed over the Rainbow Bridge on 22 October 2015. She was, however, loved and cared for during her final days.
