Dog Photographer David Darcy with MiMI at PetFriends Winmalee

Dog Photographer David Darcy with MiMI at PetFriends Winmalee

 

Famous dog photographer David Darcy is wearing an ice pack after a recent tooth extraction.  But David is smiling despite his discomfort - his beloved cat Mi Mi is recovering after a massive operation to repair horrendous wounds caused by an attacking dog.

Mi Mi disappeared on Wed night, and was found on Friday morning, in a collapsed and shocked state, with terrible wounds on the chest. Dr Russel Bassett operated on Mi Mi, and the operation was successful.

Now the skilled nursing staff at PetFriends will give Mi MI TLC and help mother nature heal these wounds.
Mi Mi is being fed via a tube that is inserted into the oesophagus, and a special gruel is syringed into the feeding tube 4 times a day.

This procedure takes special skill, especially in building a trusting bond with Mi Mi, who is naturally traumatised by her ordeal.

Kind and gentle care is always appreciated by sick pets, and Mi Mi's feelings of calm security are helped enormously by the use of Feliway, a calming pheromone.

Mi Mi has received extensive pain relief, and is fitted with a pain patch, which give extended pain relief without the need for constant injections.

Mi Mi is expected to make a total recovery.
