***UPDATE ON IVAN***

Ivan had his oral surgery to repair the severe degloving injury he suffered when he was attacked by two Rottweilers.
A degloving jaw injury is when the gum is completely detached from the jaw bone.

As you can see by these pre & post photos the surgery was a huge success and it’s obvious that Ivan has some swelling and continues to require strong pain killers and antibiotics.
Please Note: these photos are surgical photos and may cause distress.

Unfortunately, the sad news is that while in recovery Ivan suffered a post op complications which required him to have a second surgery.

Following his first surgery Ivan swallowed a lot of air. So much air that his stomach bloated to the point that it was causing him trouble breathing, this is a serious life threatening condition.

Because of the air in his stomach Ivan had to go into emergency surgery to have a special tube inserted to remove the air from his stomach.

There are many reasons why this condition can occur and in Ivan’s case it’s most likely that it occurred while he was eating because he is not used to eating with a reconstructed jaw but it can also occur if he has a small abdominal injury which cannot be seen via X-ray or scan.

Ivan remains in hospital under the excellent care of our wonderful vet team.
We are all hoping that this condition does not reoccur again during today’s meals..... if it does Ivan will need to have full abdominal emergency surgery to search for the abdominal injury causing the problem.

Ivan is such a sweet and loving young boy, the whole Forever Home Team is already in love with him and we are a worrying, nervous wreck at the moment.

We will keep you updated on Ivan as soon as we receive any news.

🚨🚨EMERGENCY RESCUE!!🚨🚨

This sweet Russian Blue 5 month old boy accidentally wondered into the wrong home and was attacked by two Rottweilers!

Unfortunately, he does not have a microchip so we’re not able to find his owner but we immediately took him in as an emergency rescue and straight to our wonderful vet.

Considering how severe the attack he suffered was it is a miracle that he is not more severely injured or even dead.

We’ve named him Ivan.

Ivan suffered a broken jaw with degloving of the lower mandible; this means that not only is his jaw broken, his whole gum has been detached from the lower jaw.
PLEASE NOTE: last photo shows this injury and might cause distress.
Ivan also has multiple puncture wounds and a possible broken leg.

We are giving Ivan pain relieving medication and antibiotics. Unfortunately, because of the swelling and pain in his mouth Ivan doesn’t feel like eating so we are feeding him baby food via a syringe every 2 hours.

Despite his terrible ordeal Ivan is a sweet loving boy who loves a rub behind the ear.

It breaks our hearts to know that we will never find his owner because he was let outside to roam without a microchip.... and more heart breaking is the thought that because he was outside he suffered this terrible attack.

Ivan will have surgery this week to repair his jaw injuries and his recovery and rehabilitation will be long.
