    Life-saving surgery

    In October last year, a female street dog was brought in to the Tbilisi Municipal Shelter. She had been involved in a serious car accident.

    Unfortunately, the poor dog had such severe injuries to a hind leg that Dr Ursula, Dr Ana and the shelter’s Vet team had to make the hard decision to remove it. This was Dr Ana’s first time completing a leg amputation and Dr Ursula expertly guided her through the procedure.

    The dog, later named Arwen, recovered well and Dr Ana took her home to foster while she got used to her new life on three legs. Arwen cannot be re-released as a street dog as she would be too vulnerable now, so once she’s fully recovered, Dr Ana will find her a loving new home.
