As pet healthcare professionals, we are often exposed to a sad and unfortunate side of pet ownership, like coming to work and finding a box of ‘unwanted' kittens on our doorstep, often in poor condition and in need of urgent medical attention. The good news is, in most cases we are able to make a difference, just like the case of little Connie. Tiny Connie was handed into our Carine practice as a stray. One of her eyes was completely fused shut and she was in much need of medical care and attention. Once settled down, our veterinarian, Dr Jonathon was able to conduct a physical examination and health check-up.
Connie was also so little and young she required regular hand feeding, using a syringe. During this time, our wonderful nursing team stepped in to provide the care and love she deserved, around the clock.
A month after surgery and with lots of TLC Connie's progress was outstanding. Not only was she maturing into a beautiful kitten, she was coping well with just one eye and had a personality everyone couldn't help but fall in love with.
