If there's one thing that Fur Kids Foundation has seen a lot of, it's kitties getting themselves into trouble, which sometimes leads to injuries.
Take the case of Banshee, a 1-year-old domestic short hair (DSH) cat. Her mom loves Banshee, who was found as a stray kitten near Spotted Horse, and was very concerned when she suspected Banshee hurt her leg.
At the vet, she found out that Banshee broke her front leg in two places, and the break was so severe that surgery wasn't an option—Banshee would need an amputation.
Vetted wants you to know that the symptoms of sprains and breaks are very similar:
Banshee's mom recently left her job to pursue entrepreneurship, and has been doing odd jobs to help pay for the bills. She was not expecting Banshee’s emergency veterinary care at all. She applied to Fur Kids Foundation for help and was more than qualified. Banshee is now happy tri-pod. We’ve heard a lot of vets’ say, “most pets are born with three legs and a spare.” So, we're very confident Banshee will do just fine as a tripod.
