Pet of the Month
Jasper is a sweet barn kitty, less than a year old, who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. An unfortunate encounter with a motor vehicle left him with severe injuries, including a diaphragmatic hernia. This is where the diaphragm muscle is torn, allowing the abdominal organs into the chest, crowding the lungs and making breathing very difficult. He also had extensive bruising of the lungs and several broken ribs.
Luckily for Jasper, the surgery to correct his diaphragmatic hernia was successful, and thanks to great nursing care from his owner, he has made a complete recovery.
