Vivian is our Office Cat. Vivian joined our team in 2017! Vivian was brought to our clinic for an emergency exam after Bloomington Animal Care and Control found her on the side of the road. It was thought she had been hit by a car, which resulted in a likely fractured upper jaw, injuries to the insides of both eyes, and a cut on her leg. We fixed her leg and started her on pain medication and antibiotics. She did so well during her recovery with us and fit in so well with the staff, the shelter let us foster her and ultimatley adopt her due to the severity of the injuries to her eyes and being blind and stressed at the shelter. These injuries could have resulted in cancer in the future, so after a visit to Dr. Klein, a Veterinary Ophthalmologist, it was decided it would be best to remove both eyes. She is able to navigate the busy hospital with ease and she can jump and climb stairs. Her favorite pastimes are chasing paper balls and napping. She has been a wonderful addition to the team.
