Pretty Girl – Prepares for Amputation

5/1/19 – Update on Pretty Girl:
Pretty Girl was seen by Dr. Zalac yesterday and she determined there were 3 options for Pretty Girl. Option 1 was having her operated on by an orthopedic doctor we have used in the past; Option 2 was the possibility of Dr. Zalac performing surgery which would not include a plate but something she thought might be possible – but, she was going to consult with Dr. Dregner, the specialist; Option 3 was amputation. Last night Dr. Z consulted with Dr. D and it was decided that the surgery Dr. Z considered would not be plausible so we were down to two options. Unfortunately, the orthopedic surgery would be quite expensive. After talking with Julie who took on Pretty Girl and will be finding her a forever home, it was decided that amputation would be the best option for not only Pretty Girl, but for the many other animals who are coming to us right now needing our help. Dr. Z felt very comfortable that Pretty Girl would do very well as a tripod in that she has been getting around already without the use of one leg. She will be having her surgery today and should be back home with Julie no later than tomorrow. I know many people have been invested in Pretty Girl and I hope everyone will understand that those of us in rescue/medical help will always consider all options, the impact on the animal, and our ability to help others. As Julie said, we have to feel positive in the fact that we at least saved her life. Without everyone’s help, including Dr. Z’s, Pretty Girl was going to be humanely euthanized. Now she will live a great life as an indoor kitty with a furever family. Pretty Girl will be available for adoption upon recovery. Please contact Julie at: if interested. ~ diana
