Good News: Joey the Garden Cat to head home to THV

Good News: Joey the Garden Cat to head home to THV

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- It’s been several weeks since our sweet Joey had surgery to remove a tumor on his leg, and today all of his friends and family at the station were relieved and excited to learn that he’ll be heading back home to THV!  Here’s more from Dr. Terry Dew:

“We're here today, eight weeks after we removed Joey's tumor, his osteosarcoma, from his leg. He's done well in his rehab period. He's been away from the station and confined a little bit,  but he's done very, very well; more and more activity each day. I'm sure you've been following along on FaceBook and those posts.

He's here today and we took some x-rays. We wanted to look at the healing of the graft that we put in and his tibia itself. These are the x-rays we took today. This is from the front of the leg, and what we see, we want to make sure our plate and screws are where we put them. Everything looks nice and tight; no change there.

Joey the Garden Cat health update

Joey the Garden Cat health update

Update from Dr. Terry Dew with Azzore Veterinary Specialists in Russellville: "We have some really great news for Joey's fans today. We got back the biopsy from Dr. Doss. The good news is that even though Joey does have an osteosarcoma, so it is definitely a bone tumor, it looks like we removed all of the tumor cells that were present and they did not invade through the thickness of the bone and into  the bone marrow cavity. All of that is great news for Joey. We expect that he should  go on and heal without any further difficulty. We look forward to an extremely long disease free interval, hopefully for the remainder of Joey's life.

"Dr. Doss is going to upload some photo micrographs of the actual tumor itself, and we hope to have those posted on our website in the next several days. Joey's doing great.
