Franklin was found begging for scraps at a local restaurant.  Kind patrons and staff were feeding him, but they knew it wasn't the best life for him.   He had an obvious limp and the restaurant was on a busy road where he could have easily been hurt.  When ACDC took him in, our veterinarian saw his hip was dislocated.  This poor, sweet boy was in a lot of pain. 


After X-rays and evaluation, our veterinarian performed a Femoral Head Ostectomy for Franklin.  This surgery removes part of the bone that is damaged and allows the joint to heal.   His pain was relieved, but he still has a long road ahead of him with rehab in his foster home.  Franklin is healing nicely and has daily "kitty rehab" exercises.  He is also undergoing laser therapy to help the joint heal.  Franklin enjoys his exercise sessions (with greenies treats as a reward) and purrs his way through the stretches. 


Through everything, he remains a super sweet furball who enjoys being held and cuddled.  Can you help sponsor this little fella's recovery?
