Flamingo

Shelter

Bastrop County Animal Services contacted Austin Humane Society about taking this little girl on as a special medical case. It was evident Flamingo had issues with her rear right leg and was in pain. She refused to put weight on it and is very sensitive to being touched on it – for good reason.

Vet Visit

Flamingo’s hind right kneecap is broken and is twisted around to the inside of the knee, instead of sitting on top of it. The vet believes she suffered a fracture which healed incorrectly. She also has some flaky skin and a callus on her broken leg. Flamingo’s medical support staff recommends amputating her leg to give her the best chance at a pain-free life.

Foster

Once this little bird gets her leg amputated, she’ll recover in a medical foster home, where she’ll wait for her forever family to adopt her! She’ll need to wait for her incision to heal and her adopter may need to take her in for a re-check, but the cost of all of her care for the leg is covered by the Foundation.
