Cat Sasha came to me for coaching 20 April 2016 with a bloody, hanging out the back of his paw. We managed to find out that the cat paw pinched escalator in the mall. Someone took pity on a cat and drove to the doctors. Doctors explained that the cat had damaged the tendons (Achilles presumably), but the ligaments and nerves, they do not sew, so that they could have done - just like the skin stitched up the wound. After this seal was returned back to the street, where he continued to live near the shopping center. Thereafter paw badly decayed and turned into a solid bloody corn, a little more and to gangrene. We have put Pasha in-patient treatment in the clinic, "Dr. Ronit," the doctors told us that needs an operation, but refused to operate without a diagnosis. We tried to make imaging, but, as it turned out, a small object as ligaments and nerves in the paw of a cat on the tomograph is not visualized. Then we were persuaded to transfer the cat to be treated in another hospital. There the doctor said that it is possible to do without operation and need only reduce inflammation in the paw of a therapeutic way. And now, after five months in the cat at the hospital, finally it became clear diagnosis. At Pasha ligament rupture extensor hock right hind leg, damaged peripheral nerves of the hind paw, which is why there is not healing on the heel neurotrophic ulcers. Make this the doctors have not been able. We went to other surgeons. The diagnosis, delivered by Dr. Ronit 5-minute inspection and monitoring of the cat, coincided with the diagnosis made by us after 5 months of hospital treatment. So I decided to trust this doctor. In the cat is now visible degenerative changes in the triceps muscle of the hock joint and in the tissues of the peripheral nerves (in other words, thighs shrunk), joined by vascular changes that lead to the disruption of the microcirculation and trophic tissue, including themselves peripheral nerves - because this creates an ulcer. Ronit recommended arthrodesis (plate on the pins, locking the joint in the hind leg unbent position) and microsurgery (dermepenthesis - transplant skin graft). Heal local trophic ulcer treatment is not possible, it is some time later reopened. Eliminate the causes of ulcers, sew ligaments - can not be - an old injury, ligament ends oplavilis and find they can not. The proposed version of the correction - the only way to help the cat. Solve us to save or cut his paw. I decided to go to the end, and as a curator I take the responsibility to try to save the leg. Cut it, we always have time. Anyone who supports me in this decision - I beg you to help us raise the necessary funds for the operation! You will also need post-operative care - treatment, injections and dressings! Collection will be closed as soon as will collect the required amount of payment for the transaction. All financial statements will be posted here.
