I brought my cat, Pig to the vet recently because he had been howling like he was in pain. I suspected crystals in his bladder. Once I got him to the vet, my suspicions were confirmed. Crystals from his urine had built up in his bladder, preventing him from urinating. To relieve this, they tried to flush them out and inserted a catheter. The hope was that upon the removal of the catheter, he would begin normal urination again. This, however, was not the case. They removed the catheter only to find that he had blocked back up again. So, the solution to this now becomes surgery. The surgery will open up his urethra in order to allow him to pass the crystals. It has minimal risks and he will lead a happy normal life with it. Unfortunately, it comes with a pretty hefty price tag—$1000-$1500 (that is on top of the $500 bill we already have for the procedures they performed).
My mom and I aren’t very well off financially and this is going to be a pretty big stretch for us to pay for. I was really hoping that you guys could possibly help take some stress off of us by donating anything you can or feel comfortable donating. I would appreciate absolutely anything you could give.
We found Pig when he was about a week old and had been abandoned by his mother. We bottle fed him, loved him, and raised him. He is an important member of our family and we need him to be better. He is a sweet, sweet boy. I love him a lot and I really need some help.
Help my friend out, please.
If you can’t donate it’d be awesome if you could at least reblog and share this. Thanks.
