Our little one-eyed wonder girl, Winnie, had her 5th foxtail removal surgery on Tuesday!
This time our incredible vet went in and opened up dozens of sites where hundreds of foxtails were still hiding. Poor Winnie. She’s covered in sutures now (some had to be redone yesterday when she decided to scratch them open), and her ordeal is still not over. It’s like she has a foxtail factory inside of her! They just keep coming out! Our vet and her team removed more foxtails this surgery than any surgery before.
Luckily for Winnie, she’s got a team of people with her who love her and are determined to get every last foxtail out of her. If left in there, these foxtails could kill her. Not only are they incredibly painful, they can lead to massive infections when left untreated. Winnie has already lost an eye to a foxtail, we won’t let her lose her life.
