Akira was found with a huge open wound to the side of her face. The vets were able to stitch the jaw portion together, however she is missing a large portion of the skin on one side of her mouth.
We believed that Akira would be able to live a happy life once the tissue heals, so we authorized the surgery she needed to close the side of her mouth. Infection was the biggest hurdle after that, but she did great and travelled to us, where she spent a couple of weeks in isolation.
Akira had reconstructive surgery by our vets here and recovered beautifully! She had no trouble finding her forever home and we couldn’t be happier!
