Pet of the Month
Okami is living proof that microchips work. A good Samaritan found him badly injured, with severe facial swelling, possibly from being hit by a car, and rushed him in to VCA Windham Animal Hospital. We scanned him for a microchip and found one, allowing us to trace his identification and discover his owner was one of our clients. The owners had been frantically looking for him for days and came right over to get him. His injuries were severe enough that he was transferred to the 24 hour emergency hospital, where he had an extensive stay. After his release, he still required multiple tooth extractions due to fractured teeth from head trauma. He has had a long recovery, but none of it would have happened if he hadn’t had that microchip, and some very dedicated owners. He is adjusting to life as an indoor cat!
