Tiny Kitten Pog Gets Lifesaving Heart Surgery and a Home
Blue Cross Victoria charity animal hospital saved the life of 5 week old shelter kitten Pog, who was in a bad way due to a birth defect. Now she is recovered and has a home.
Pog was brought to UK animal services charity Blue Cross at only 5 weeks old. She was underweight, with raspy breathing, and was found to suffer from a congenital abnormality when examined at Blue Cross Victoria Animal Hospital in London. She had emergency open chest surgery to fix the problem, caused by several blood vessels wrapped around her esophagus. After a few weeks of recuperatrion at the hospital, she had gained weight and recovered. Pog was transferred to the Blue Cross Hertfordshire Rehoming Centre, and has since been adopted.
Pog’s is just the latest complicated lifesaving surgery on a cat at Blue Cross hospital.
