Pet of the Week




Eleven-week-old Nova came into OC Animal Care with a traumatic injury to her leg. Her left rear leg had been partially degloved and amputated. To say the least she was in an incredible amount of pain.
Our clinic staff worked quickly to get her pain under control and into surgery to save tissue and muscle surrounding the wound. This resulted in one of our smallest kitten “tripods” yet! Weighing in at just under a pound, little Nova was lucky to have made it into the shelter and under the care of our veterinarians.
Once weaned from her pain medication, Nova was cleared to go to foster care. Her wonderful foster mom did not care that she only had 3 limbs, she loved her with her whole heart. Her mom says she loves dogs and is a total purr machine!
Does Nova sound like the purrfect fit for you? Please call 714-935-6848 to schedule an adoption appointment!
