Seniors’ Week at Aanifeira

Aanifeira - Associação dos Amigos dos Animais de Santa Maria da Feira

It was a busy week at Aanifeira this week along with the normal day-to-day running of the shelter and veterinary clinic, there were several adoptions plus one new canine member to the shelter.

Last Tuesday vet Claudia arrived at the shelter to open up, to find a beautiful elderly basset hound sitting on a rug at the front door!   It was sad to see her left in this state, although she was not thin and had been reasonably well cared for, it was obvious she had been used for continuous breeding and had come to a stage when the owners had decided to flagrantly discard her without a second thought!

Claudia quickly picked her up and took her in the warm infirmary, settling into a bed with food and water.   Dama as she has been baptized is a senior dog and after a veterinary checkup it was found that she has a gastric problem and therefore needs a special diet.
