This kitty was brought into Range Road Vet who then contacted SCARS. Vegas had been hit by a car. We contacted Pulse Veterinary Specialists & Emergency and rushed him to their care because of his severe oral trauma. Vegas received a CT scan and oral evaluation under general anesthesia to identify the underlying injuries.
There were severe lacerations of the soft palate. There were numerous fractures of the hard palate, nasal, maxillary, and pterygoid bones. There was a fractured canine tooth that was treated with vital pulp therapy.
The lacerations have been repaired and a feeding tube has been placed to allow Vegas to receive water and food during the healing process!!
Vegas is not ready for adoption yet as he is still in recovery. Please keep him in your thoughts during this time.
