At only 8 weeks old Bella suffered a traumatic injury to her right eye. Bella was seized by the Hamilton Burlington SPCA where she received emergent veterinary care. Unfortunately, after examination by an ophthalmologist at the Mississauga Oakville Veterinary Emergency Clinic, it was determined that her eye could not be saved. Bella had her eye removed and went to live with Dr. Tanya during her recovery. She never left her home.
