LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Joey the Garden Cat's cancer surgeon, Dr. Terry Dew with Azzore Veterinary Specialists has looked at Izzy's x-rays.
Izzy, named after Izard St., was found near the THV 11 News station with an injured leg. Dr. Dew said, "It looks like a lateral patella luxation (aka trick knee). The knee cap is moving out to the side instead of staying central where it belongs. This is very repairable. It isn't an emergency by any means, but long term Izzy runs the risk of developing osteoarthritis in that joint."
Izzy's new forever family will wait to make a decision on his care since it is not a pressing matter at this time. Right now, Izzy needs to settle into a routine of safety and love.
