Lightening, aka Jit Lightening, is a 2 ½-year-old brindle female born October 26, 2008. Her sire is Kiowa Sweet Trey, and her dam is Jit Aero Design. Lightening's 15 race career at Gulf Greyhound Park in La Marque, TX, ended on Sunday, February 27, 2011, with a severe compound fracture of her right rear hock. GALT was called Monday, and volunteers transported her to VCA Preston Park Animal Hospital on Wednesday. Dr. Jeff Ellis referred Lightening to Dr. Bob Radasch of the Dallas Veterinary Surgery Center. Sadly, Lightening's fracture, with infection already setting in along with multiple fractures to the tibia and talus, was too severe to repair, and her leg had to be amputated. Surgery was completed on March 3. Lightening is now fully healed and ready to hop into your heart!
Lightening has not yet been tested with cats or small animals.
