JUST over a week after a spaniel was savaged in a dog attack, leaving him unable to walk, a Nottingham vet has got him back on his feet again.
Dog owner Kathy Hart said that veterinary staff at Hucknall’s East Midlands Referrals have performed a miracle operation on her 11-year-old Papillon, Cody.
Retired Kathy, 86, from Aspley had taken Cody on holiday – along with her daughters Annette and Caroline and their partners – to Devon on Saturday, June 7.
They were celebrating Annette’s wedding anniversary but only minutes after they arrived the attack happened. It left Cody with a spinal injury requiring specialist surgery.
Annette, 59, of Chilwell, said: “I was just unpacking when there was an awful commotion.
“We thought he was gone, he was absolutely lifeless.
“The vet told us that he was very lucky that the attack missed vital blood vessels.”
The other animal has been put down.
Cody was rushed to a nearby vet with blood pouring from his neck.
