Is this the standard of care for handling a "near death" cat after major abdominal surgery?
Further evidence on the hospital's inability to communicate consistent details have been uncovered.
On 02/28/14, an employee of Hometown Animal Care posted pictures of the cat a day and a half after surgery on a public Facebook page. In her comments, She reveals the surgical removal of 61. That is approximately 45% less than what Dr. Sutton reported on 4/22/14. The owner says 111 hair ties is a huge exaggeration and used to distract attention from the real issue.
This post-op cat, recovering from major gastro-intestinal surgery is shown DANGLED in front of the camera for show, completely irregardless of the exposed abdominal incision along his mid-section.
Look at how he is being held. The hand is right above
the incision with no other support with legs dangling freely.... most likely stretching his fresh incision.
