Things go Right for Lefty
Lefty, a 1-year-old dachshund mix, came to the shelter with severe injuries to her right upper leg. The large open wound was compromised by infection and dead tissue, making it very difficult to treat. Dr. Johnna Lee, the shelter’s veterinarian and who had only just started, decided to attempt treatment and give Lefty a chance. She performed surgery, removing all of the necrotic tissue and closed the wound with a drain to deal with infection. After weeks of monitoring and treatments, it was determined that Lefty was in the clear and could be readied for adoption. She was adopted in only two days! She is now a member of a great family.
