Nikki was found hanging around the basketball courts at the north end of 1st Avenue North in Antigua. She had been in the same area for several day, growing progressively thinner and hungrier. She was very sweet, and approached eagerly in hopes of food.
We finally picked her up as it was obvious that she was either lost or had been dumped, and did not know where to go. She was very dirty and flea infested.
She recovered from her time on the street, but developed a neurological problem causing her to stagger and fall. Dr. Bader was consulted and diagnosed possible toxoplasmosis, which we treated with Doxycycline. Nikki recovered completely and Dr. Jim flew her to Michigan and placed her in adoption with a lovely family through Headin’ Home Pet Rescue.
