Princess's Journey to Find a Family
As the days passed, Princess became a member of the Amazon CARES and Vet Ventures Teams, while our deadline to leave Requena grew close. The thought of leaving Princess behind to wander alone and defenseless in the streets tormented us all. She had captured our hearts, so we brought her with us. In Iquitos, healthy and happy, she will have a better chance to have a family.
Princess suffers from epilepsy In dogs, epilepsy is very similar to that in humans, and can be defined as, "an unloading of electrochemistry in the brain, appearing at any time and becoming repetitive with time.”
Amazon CARES has decided to administer these medications to Princess for anyone who adopts her, for as long as is necessary, since these medications are strictly regulated under the Peruvian law.
Here you can see her very healthy and happy with a full coat of shiny hair. She now has her own family! Her collar and lead are donated by the generosity of www.lupinepet.com.
We are appreciative of people willing to adopt a special needs pet, which is a very recent trend in Iquitos,
