“Abigail” was a stray that was a victim of a hit and run. She was microchipped, but staff was unable to contact the owner since they did not register the chip with their contact information.
After her holding period with animal control she was transferred back for cage rest due to a fractured pelvis. A physical exam and radiographs revealed “Abigail” needed more than cage rest to recover. It was discovered that due to the location to her pelvic fracture and a torn cruciate ligament that her leg would need to be amputated. Dr. Rachel Beck, a surgical professor at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, donated her time to the case and completed the surgery for the Chester Foundation.
“Abigail’s” foster family fell in love with her through the process and she now has a loving home.
