Iris was found by local animal lovers after a month of attempts to trap her and then pulled for rescue from a county shelter by All4Paws. Upon arrival it was obvious Iris was very malnourished. Her first day at All4Paws Iris spit up all the food she was fed. It was thought this could be caused from travel or stress so she was treated for upset stomach.
The second day at All4Paws her ability to process food had not improved. Thanks to our observant staff, Iris was quickly rushed to a local vet knowing Iris had more than just an upset stomach. The first exam suggested a large growth or tumor in her chest. Realizing Iris’s condition was critical, she was taken to Veterinary Specialty Care in Mt. Pleasant on March 8th.
