Kora the Miracle Dog

Kora was rescued from near death as a pup by the loving Henderson family.

While visiting a farm in Palmerston with her family she was accidentally run over. Her grandparents rushed her to the Veterinary Centre Palmerston. She was given pain medication and promptly sen up to Oamaru for further treatment. On arrival at the veterinary hospital she was started on emergency support including intravenous fluids and oxygen. X-rays revealed that her stomach and liver had moved into her chest preventing her from being able to breathe. She was taken into surgery straight away to have her ruptured diaphragm repaired and her liver and stomach returned to their position in the abdomen. Kora was a real fighter and recovered remarkably quickly from surgery.

We look forward to Kora coming for a visit soon for a catch up with our miracle dog.
