Rescue Kitten Lucas by Shann Ikezawa, DVM

We are saddened to report that despite aggressive and dedicated care by the Good Samaritan that originally rescued Lucas, he continued to have episodes of constipation and weakness. He spent weeks in and out of the hospital on fluids and multiple medications trying to correct his disease, but he failed to gain any weight and had intermittent periods of collapse. Ultimately, our Good Samaritan and the doctors here agreed the most compassionate decision would be to stop putting Lucas through any more and he was humanely euthanized. It is these patients that remind me of the best part of my job- our wonderful, generous clients, and the worst- the pets that can't be saved.
