STOP PRESS. AFTER HIS FINAL CHECK WINSTON HAS NOW GONE TO HIS NEW HOME ON A FARM

We are introducing Winston our very special boy, to you all. A call from a vet on Monday morning to ask if we could help a stray that had been taken in following a probable traffic accident and was found to have serious injuries to his pelvis. After x-rays it was decided that he either had to be a referral to a specialist or pts. Following much thought in a short space of time we decided to give him a chance and have the referral to Leeds. Winston now has a superb metalwork of screws and plates to hold his pelvis together, and a cold bottom minus all his fur!! He is doing as well as he should be at this stage. Will keep you updated on his progress since without your support, we would not have been able to save him. Our paypal acc is wecare@lincolncatcare.com if anyone would be willing to help a small amount towards his £3500 vet bill

WINSTON’S STORY CONTINUED AS HE WAS TREATED AT FRANKS PET SURGEONS IN LEEDS. THE PIECE BELOW WAS KINDLY SENT BY LOUISE THEIR CLIENT ADVOCATE


One of our recent patients was Winston, a stray cat who was referred to us from Lincoln Cat Care charity.
When Winston arrived at frank. Pet Surgeons. he was unable to walk, and we assumed that he had been involved in a road traffic accident.

Winston had a CT scan which revealed a left sacroiliac luxation and a comminuted fracture of the right ilium. Additionally, there were fractures of the pelvic floor and of the right ischial body; the latter fracture extended into the caudal few millimetres of the acetabulum. Winston underwent surgery to reduce and stabilise the fractures on both sides, and after a few days he was discharged into the care of the charity.

With our fixed prices, Lincoln Cat Care were able to refer Winston knowing exactly what the cost of treatment would be, which also includes our surgical complications warranty should any problems occur, as well as his follow up appointment in six weeks’ time …. It would be lovely to hear that Winston has found a new home when he next comes to visit us.
