Jewelry on humans come in all shapes, sizes and designs; ranging from chains to pendant stones and even costume jewelry made for fashion statements. Jewelry however, are not meant for animals.
This is the story of a pit bull named Roxanne, rescued in Columbia, South Carolina. She was only a year’s old when she was found. Roxanne however, bore a nasty surprise – her neck and face were swollen due to the pressure the 6 pound chain collar set has caused.
Her neck area in particular, were full of dead tissues and blood clots.
Roxanne was only 50 pounds – that meant that the chain on her weighs at least 10% of her total frame! The good souls at Rescue Dogs Rock NYC however, took Roxanne in and rushed her for emergency treatment at a partnering medical facility located along South Carolina.
Although Roxanne’s neck was left gashed by the chains, the medical team were fortunately able to safely remove and sanitize her wounds properly.
Roxanne also required several stitches to patch the wounds up – she’s one brave dog!
This is Roxanne at present.
A happy patient is a smiling patient. Well done, Roxanne!
