In Siberia – Russiɑ, winter brings severe frosts that put the lives of other animals at risk. This is the story of a kitten named “Dymka” (the Russian word for ‘fog’), became the ᴠɪᴄᴛɪᴍ of a cold Russian whip, and after using it it ᴅɪᴇᴅ. . . all four limbs. Luckily, thanks to tremendous advances in technology and the development of elite veterinarians, she’s ready to do just that.
As far as is known, this kitten was found driving on cold roads in Novokuznetsk, Siberia. This man trying to help the poor animal brought her to the Novosiƅirsk clinic located in the city of the same name. There it was discovered that Dymkɑ had suffered frostbite in his extremities, tail and ears, after being exposed to the harsh Siberian cold for a long time.
Considering the condition of the kitten on arrival at the clinic, it is necessary ᴛᴏ ᴀᴍᴘᴜᴛᴀᴛᴇ its front and hind legs. However, experts from the clinic where Dymka was received, have begun working together with researchers from TPU (Tomsk Polytechnic University) to design a 4-year-old fake titanium cat that will do just that… allowing her to return to school and return to a normal life.
So then, using cutting-edge technology, such as the Dymk foot CT scanner and the 3D print of the calcium phosphate and titanium implant (which comes with the kitten’s paws) they just need to touch the child who has successfully reduced the impact first, on her front leg, and then they perform the impact on her back leg.
After more than 6 months of this important procedure, one can now see how Dymka is trying to regain maximum mobility with her huge legs. In the kitten clinic, one can see the cat stretching, walking, and even drinking if it doesn’t lose a limb or its legs are perfect.
It should be noted that to date Dymka is the second cat in the world to undergo such a procedure. It was first performed in 2016 on a cat named Ryzhik (red) who, after losing a limb, underwent this surgical procedure to restore mobility.
During the cold, snowy winter, dozens of animals and other animals symbolize the icy coldness of Siberian cities. Frostbite occurs when the extreme cold of winter freezes the skin and internal tissues, often extremities, sometimes stripping healthy tissues and forcing them to work to save lives.
If you have a pet and live in an area with extreme cold, try to make sure all the necessary conditions are met to avoid falling ɪɴᴛᴏ ʟɪꜰᴇ-ᴛʜʀᴇᴀᴛᴇɴɪɴɢ situations like these.
