CHARLESTON, S.C. — It’s been one month since Caitlyn, a 15-month-old Chocolate Staffie, was found with her mouth bound shut with electrical tape. Unable to eat, drink, or pant for days, she was in critical condition. When she arrived at the Charleston Animal Society, few knew whether or not she would survive.
Charleston Animal Society immediately transferred Caitlyn to Veterinary Specialty Care for specialized laser treatments and a complex surgery to her tongue and snout. Though the outlook was initially grim, Caitlyn’s progress has been remarkable.
Doctors Klein and Bianucci and the entire staff of Veterinary Specialty Care, worked collaboratively to give Caitlyn the best care and the most modern veterinary treatments they could provide. As a result, Caitlyn has healed well. Her transformation is striking.
This past week Caitlyn rested comfortably at Charleston Animal Society while awaiting entry to her final step towards recovery — foster care. Caitlyn’s Comeback, a Facebook page devoted to everything Caitlyn, has reported as of June 29 that Caitlyn’s now officially in the care of her foster mom.
Prior to her departure, she made the rounds to say goodbye and thank you and the staff lined up to wish her well.
