Road to Recovery: CARA Cat Leah’s Leg Amputation Surgery Posted on Wednesday, 19 September 2018

Update on Oct. 3: Leah is back at the clinic! Here is she 1 week after the amputation surgery. So far she’s taking it like a champ. She’s just feeling a bit woozy from the ride back. Ate Roselle our cat caretaker is giving her the prescribed medications to help alleviate pain and make Leah stronger. Thank you to the amaaazing staff at Philippine Pet Birth Control Center for taking good care of her 🙂

Earlier this year, we had a leg amputation story following the life of Sweetie the CARA rescued dog here.  We also asked for monetary donations to fund the surgery. The call out was received with a lot of positive response and Sweetie has long since undergone the surgery and recovered. *She’s also adopted already, yey!*

This time, we have another clinic animal that needs an amputation surgery.

Leah is one of CARA’s longtime cat adoptables not to mention is also one of the friendliest cats we have. (just let her approach you and all is cool) Just last week, our cat caretaker noticed wounds appearing on her distorted left leg. Upon further observation, the clinic staff determined that the wounds were a result of her walking which involves the heavy dragging of her left leg.

To confirm this, Leah was brought to the vet on Thursday, Sept. 20. And true enough, the vet said that it was so.  The increased pressure in the dragging of her leg irritates the skin so much so that it peels off, which can be a very painful sensation. The vet then recommended that an amputation of her leg must be done because this will not go away and will keep happening from now on.
