Can you help Anja fight for her life?

We currently have a little Rottweiler puppy fighting for her life at the vets who was cruelly abandoned late at night on Christmas Eve. At barely 8 weeks of age Anja was found in a box by a passerby who called the National RSPCA rescue line. She was found to be lame on one leg, shivering with cold and underweight. Anja spent Christmas at the National RSPCA vets and came into our charity's care on 27th December.

After two weeks Anja was no longer lame; it was originally suspected that her leg bones were growing at different rates but with her rapid development they soon rectified themselves. But no sooner had she got the all clear with her legs she came down with cystitis so off she went to the vets again. Whilst this improved in no time, late at night on Sunday 12th January Anja became desperately ill with vomiting and diarrhoea. She was rushed to the vets and admitted straight away. Anja has been there ever since fighting for her life with suspected parvo virus. Tests are currently inconclusive because of her recent vaccination, however today she has had to be operated on to explore abnormalities in her intestines. It is likely that the abnormalities may have been caused by the gastro enteritis but the picture remains vague and her future in doubt.

So far Anja's veterinary care is up to £1000. She is 11 weeks old now and we are desperate to give her every chance of recovering and going on to live a long and happy life but we are running out of funds. Her veterinary team are fighting hard to keep this little girl going and she's certainly doing her bit too. Can you help us help her?
