Your Amazing Pets: Back from the Brink


Ginger, Amazing Pets 2010While on a walk in front of her condo this past January, Ginger, an eight-year-old Chihuahua, was attacked by a larger dog. Her tiny body was “degloved”; two-thirds of her skin, gone. Owner Jessica Bickley of Inman Park turned to Georgia Veterinary Specialists (see page 60), where Ginger—whom Bickley calls a “fighter”—underwent extensive surgery and spent thirteen days in the ICU, followed by six months of recovery. Now Ginger is completely healthy, though her newly grown skin is still delicate. “Remarkably, Ginger is the same dog she was before the attack,” says Bickley. “Lovable, sweet, trusting, and sassy!”
