Meet Lt. Dan
Note some of the photos of the original injury are graphic.
This ordinary black cat is nothing but ordinary. Lt. Dan was brought to the SPCA from Humane Animal Services a few days before Christmas. He had been taken to SPEC (Solano Pet Emergency Clinic) and recieved emergency care after he had been presumably hit by a car. He sustained a severe degloving injury to his left rear leg. In the following days the wound became infected despite two different antibiotics and Lt. Dan became septic. A rear limb amputation was the only way he could be saved. Cal West Pet Hosptial performed the surgery on Lt. Dan a few days after Christmas. Lt. Dan is getting along just fine on three legs. This adorable black cat is another special case that due to the Krinkls fund was able to recieve extensive medical care and be rehabilitated. This case is a prime example of when a community works together the result is amazing.
