Specialist teams get together to save Mila!
10 March 2019
Mila is a beautiful young cat who was referred to the Cardiology Team at Willows by her usual vet as she was feeling very unwell and her vet had a suspicion that she may have fluid within her chest cavity. She also had some persistent bleeding from where she had previously had bloods taken.
Mila was seen by the Cardiology Team to look for the cause of fluid within her chest cavity, and they were able to confirm this was not due to heart disease, so the investigation continued with the Medicine Team. Further investigation and blood tests revealed that Mila was suffering from severe blood loss due to rodenticide poisoning. The Critical Care Team worked fast to stabilise Mila whilst we organised a feline blood donor to help us save Mila’s life.
Here at Willows we have Specialist teams covering many different disciplines which makes the care of our patients truly exceptional. The team approach of our Medicine, Cardiology, Emergency and Critical Care service all under one roof ensured a speedy recovery for this lovely girl.
Thankfully, due to the immediate actions of Mila’s usual vet, as well as the Willows’ multi-disciplinary team and the blood donor that came forward, we are delighted to say that Mila is now doing very well, and she is now back at home loving life as a kitten should!
