Doctors Prepare Luke For Surgery

The "Luke" Series - Episode 2

Luke’s wounds are extensive and doctors have no idea what they going to find once they open up.

Just a few weeks after his traumatic escape from dogfighting, Luke remains determined to recover.

Luke was found completely collapsed.

After a lengthy pursuit and searching for the injured dogs in several private residences, the second call led the inspector to Luke. ” I loaded him into the SPCA vehicle and rushed him straight to our animal hospital in Grassy Park. On arrival at the hospital, Luke was unresponsive and the attending veterinarian initiated emergency treatment.”

“I thought he was going to die,” Mfini recalled.

Dr Stephanie Chatry gets Luke ready for pre-operation.
