Token, a rescue cat from Qatar, moved to Abu Dhabi several months ago. When his parents noticed a limp in his hind leg, they brought him to GVC to see Dr. Vito (who was also their vet in Qatar).
Token was in serious discomfort and therefore not happy to be examined. Dr. Vito took an x-ray and found that he had an old fracture in that leg that had healed badly, leaving him in pain. Despite efforts to manage the pain, the leg was still causing him a lot of discomfort. Finally, his parents made the tough decision to put him through surgery to amputate the leg.
Choosing amputation turned out to be the best decision for Token. After the procedure, Token transformed into a happy and playful little kitten and his parents say that he is a completely different cat.
He is now living a happy and healthy life with his parents in Abu Dhabi and is a much-loved member of the #GVCFamily
