Many of you will have been following the tragic story of Ethel, The kitten who was tied up with a metal chain and left for dead.
Ethel had a suspected crush injury that had caused lung collapse and pneumothorax on one side, this was corrected by our fabulous vet team but this kind of injury can lead to permanent lung damage, pulmonary contusions, clots, reperfusion injury…. although she looked externally well, sadly her injuries were just too great despite intensive treatment.
It is with great sadness that despite everything we tried Ethel lost her fight yesterday morning.
Thankyou to the amazing team at Northcote Vets, all our lovely supporters and our fabulous volunteers who all, day in day out make our work possible despite our difficulties.
