Hernia surgery success for road traffic accident cat

A young cat with a diaphragmatic hernia caused by a suspected road traffic accident has made a complete recovery following emergency surgery at Davies Veterinary Specialists (Davies) in Hertfordshire.

Tiger checked into his home much later than normal on Boxing Day and his owner became concerned when she noticed he seemed weak and unable to jump.

Apart from a slight scratch on a back paw and some discomfort when he was picked up, Tiger didn’t have any other obvious signs, but he was clearly not well.

Tiger's owner took him to their local vets who performed a radiograph and detected a

tear in his diaphragm. The severity of the Injury prompted emergency referral to Linnaeus-owned Davies Veterinary Specialists.
