What's the difference between life and death for a cat? Well for Sweetie it was a caring person and the right vet. Sweetie was living in my friend Cynthia's yard the last few months, fed and cared for, and when Cynthia noticed her not eating well and becoming thin, she took her to the THS for help, hoping they would give her medical care and perhaps be able to put her up for adoption before the winter, since she seemed to be friendly. But the THS said Sweetie had severe periodontal disease and recommended she be euthanized. Cynthia was devastated by this news and instead took her home and reached out for help.
I offered to take her to my favourite vet, Dr. Vlad, from Yonge Davenport, for a second opinion. Today we took her in and he examined her. Dr. Vlad agreed that her mouth looked bad, but no reason to euthanize her. Sweetie seems to be about 8 years old and in good shape, her viral test was negative, so we took a leap of faith, and removed all but 2 of her teeth. We expect her to recover well and hope that she can be socialized and have a home inside.
I need your help though, the bill is $854 and that's a rescue rate, and a great price but neither Cynthia nor I have the funds to cover this bill. We believe that Sweetie deserves to live, I hope you will too, and donate for her care, even $5 or $10 would help. I'm happy to provide the bill if you would like to see it.
Thank you for helping us to save Sweetie!
