Poor Missy has Stomatitis
This condition requires removal of all her teeth
It is painful to eat, and this condition will get worse and become life threatening. It can get so painful that the cat cannot eat! Missy was just rescued from the shelter in March of this year. Glenn, her owner, is disabled and lives alone, and his friend got him Missy from the shelter to be a companion.
Then in May, Missy started drooling, all the time. Glenn took her to the emergency vet who then referred him to a regular vet clinic. In the end Glenn, whose income is only $780 a month from disability, spent over $500 on Missy. She has stomatitis, a condition where the gums become inflamed and painful. It gets so bad the cat can barely eat, and cannot clean itself.
Glenn has to get Missy to a specialist, which is more than 80 miles from where he lives (and he does not drive). He has an estimate from his vet that it will be about $3000, but has not gotten an official estimate from the specialist yet.
A previous fundraiser to fund treatment while surgery is arranged for Missy was SUCCESSFUL! That is amazing, and very helpful for her! Now she needs to have the surgery!
We apologize for the poor photos, but Glenn does not have a good camera/phone and due to his disability has trouble getting Missy in a good position for a photo. All donations are for Missy, and will go only to her care. The vet has not provided an estimate because Glenn lives far away, and doesn’t drive himself. So the surgery has been arranged with the specialist by phone. For this reason they will not provide a written estimate, but they have told us it will be about $3000 to $3500, which is typical for this procedure.
