Mirri, a four month old kitten, suffered a tough week. A child had placed a hair tie around one of Mirri’s legs right before she went missing for three days. Upon her return, her owners noticed she could not walk on her front leg. Her blood supply had been cut off by the hair tie.
They brough Mirri into Darwin Animal Doctors’ clinic. Our veterinarians did everything they could to save the paw, however the hair tie was on for too long. The paw had no blood flow and was severely infected. The best option for Mirri was to amputate.
Our talented vets did an amazing job on the amputation, and Mirri returned later to remove her sutures. She is healing great and getting used to running around on her three legs.
