Surgery Success: Goldie’s Nose Repair
Goldie, a 15-week-old Labrador Retriever mix, came to AHS with an old injury that resulted in the middle piece of her nose being detached, making it difficult for her to breath through her nose. Goldie was treated in AHS Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital™, where AHS' medical team performed surgery and was able to successfully reconnect her nose. AHS' Second Chance Animal Trauma Hospital™ is the largest shelter-based trauma center for homeless animals in the Southwest. Second Chance is dedicated to providing veterinary care for animals with nowhere else to turn.
Now, all healed up and ready to take on the world, Goldie is available for adoption and awaiting her fur-ever home at AHS' Sunnyslope Campus!
Second Chance features state-of-the-art medical equipment, including digital x-ray machines, in-house diagnostic equipment, orthopedic instruments and dental equipment — all made possible through generous Arizona Humane Society donors — which allows us to provide prompt medical and surgical attention to more than 11,000 homeless animals that need our care each year.
