Poor Chuggers – he went missing for a few days and returned home limping and walking in an odd way. This story is from Petplan and it’s really about the importance of micro-chipping your cat. Petplan vet Brian Faulkner tells the tale:
Chuggers had returned home late one evening after being missing for four days and was walking in a strange manner. I turned up to their home and advised them to bring him into the surgery the following morning for x-rays.
As I suspected, Chuggers had broken one of his legs and required surgery to correct his broken bone.
Despite his injury, Chuggers – who was recently used in a Petplan photo campaign – and his owners were incredibly lucky that he was able to make his way home.
