Rescued Dog Heals with Help from Naples Wound-healing Expertise

A pitbull named Abigail was rescued late last year from "bait dog hell." The dog was being used as bait in dogfights, and was saved only after suffering severe injuries to her face and ear that required extensive veterinary care.

That's where Arthrex in Naples stepped in, using cutting edge wound care and a state-of-the-art wound dressing to help the injured pitbull. Abigail is now on the mend and even visited the Arthrex team that aided her recovery.

Wednesday at 1 p.m. on Gulf Coast Live, Abigial stops by with the people who helped rescue her and nurse her back to health, including:

  • David Shepard, Senior Director of Orthobiologics and Vet Systems with Arthrx
  • Michelle Chargot, a clinical specialist in orthopedic trauma and orthobiologics with Arthrx
  • Victoria Frazier, founder of Love is Fur Ever Dog Rescue
Matthew Smith is a reporter and producer of WGCU’s Gulf Coast Live.
