Cika's owners contacted our Bali rescuer because she was completely paralysed and they didn't know what to do.
We took her into our care and on inspection, it was clear her paralysis has been caused by blood parasites. We bathed her with flea and tick control shampoo and literally hand picked off hundreds of ticks. That's the easy part. The difficult part will be in her rehab where we will try to get her walking again.
We have been fortunate enough to have sponsors help us to set up a rehab safe house where we can offer specialised therapy for special needs cases just like Cika. She has started physiotherapy, laser, water theraphy and acupuncture to try to stimulate the use of her legs again and she is handling these sessions incredibly well.
She has garden time, but she also needs crate time so she can recuperate and rest after her therapy sessions. She is also getting all her nutrients with lots of supplements and vitamins and a protein rich raw food diet. Her journey with us has only just started and it's too soon to say whether she will make a strong recovery or whether she will need mobility aids.
This gorgeous Pitbull girl has such a beautiful, gentle nature and such a strong will to live, we will do everything in our power to give her all we can and help her have the best chance of leading a healthy, normal life.
