Veronica was found with a huge deep injury just adjoining her spine. It was rather tough to treat a wound which was so close to the spine but luckily had not damaged any of the nerves. Yet it took very long to heal and after healing there would have been a permanent dent next to her spine which looked like a “sealed hollow” created due to the injury.

Veronica could no longer walk straight but would have a “swayed walk”. It was not possible for her to live on the streets or in the wild, as the wound could have re-opened, any slight injury at that area again could have severely damaged her spine and she had to be under rehab for her lifetime. Today Veronica is happy and healthy, she is given good food, is well taken care of and can play, jump, climb without any fears.

Animals with Spinal Injuries would in almost every circumstances find it very difficult to live on the street or be in an unprotected environment.

We as animal caregivers would like to express the need to care such animals permanently where their play, health and cat-like activities can be monitored and they be safe.
