How Far Would You Go to Save a Life?

Thousands of kilometers from the nearest fully equipped veterinary clinic, Star and Blue were about to lose everything.  

Rescued in a small provincial town in Saudi Arabia, with no access to X-rays, blood tests or other necessary medical resources, limited veterinary assistance nearby and overwhelmed local fosters — their injuries sentenced them to certain suffering and probable death without help…

When we first looked into their mournful eyes, these two babies were as good as dead.

STAR WILL SURELY DIE ON THE STREETS

BLUE, REQUIRING URGENT ASSESSMENT AND POSSIBLE SPINAL SURGERY

The two cats are in urgent need of evacuation, examination and stabilization. A proper diagnosis must establish the extent of their injuries so treatment can be planned. Blue’s paralysis leads us to suspect a spinal injury and possible spinal nerve damage or compression. If the nerves are simply compressed and not severed, emergency surgical intervention could help prevent Blue from becoming paraplegic and forever losing the use of his hind legs. Star’s injury could be anything from physical to nerve damage, and he may need either recovery treatment or amputation.

STAR

The doctor established that baby Star has radial nerve damage, and there is no hope for saving his leg. An amputation — complete shoulder disarticulation — has been suggested as the most appropriate action. Cats can live quite happily on three legs as they are light, agile and can easily compensate for one missing limb.

According to the X-rays and examination the doctor has concluded that there Blue indeed has a spinal injury but that there is no visible vertebral bone damage. Blue has hindquarter paresis, and not a complete paralysis. Because we have no history on him before his rescue, it is difficult to guess the origin of the injury or assess when or how it happened. There is possible nerve compression causing the paresis, which may be alleviated to some extent with cage rest, large doses of vitamin B and corticosteroids.

The doctor reports deep pain reflex but no proprioception, and a delay in the patella reflex. This means that Blue does not have a very good sense of the relative position of his legs and the strength or effort he must apply to move them. The delayed patella reflex means that Blue also has trouble maintaining his posture and balance.

Blue’s backside is severely infected due to urine scalding as he must have spent an unknown period of time totally incontinent and dragging himself around. The area has been shaved and thoroughly cleaned.

The good news is bowl movements, and his toilet functions seem to be operational and he attempts to walk on his hind legs, albeit so far with minimal success. Blue is also trying to use the litter box, which is a great sign and give us hope for recovery. He has been stated on a stabilization complex and prednisolone. His appetite is great, CBC, blood chemistry, and other vitals are ok.

UPDATE | February 18, 2016

Star is now officially a tripod! We could mourn the loss of his leg but we prefer to focus on the positive result of him now being free of a non-functioning limb, which was severely impeding him and would have caused his certain death on the streets.
