The Canteen 2 cat needs $277.00 for a suspected fight wound.
We first noticed a wound on Robbie’s right front paw on Sep 9, which we thought could have been due to a fight.
As the wound was not very serious, we made the decision to continue monitoring Robbie closely, flushing out the wound with saline and applying medication when we could get to him.
But on Sep 22, we began to notice that his wound had began to be infected – Robbie was allowed to roam outside despite the wound – and we decided to bring him to the vet the next day.
The vet cleaned Robbie’s wound, and hospitalised him to make sure that his wound healed. We released him on Oct 3, after a full recovery.
Robbie is no stranger to the vet – he had been hospitalised for a very long period last year when he was diagnosed with pancreatitis due to a rather unhealthy diet at Canteen 2.
He has since made a full recovery, though we have continued to observe his condition.
We managed to give Robbie the best care despite our strained resources – but as we’ve explained in a previous blog post, we will require a total of $634.00 per month to be able to pay for veterinary bills like these, so that we can take prompt action if necessary without having to wait for additional resources.
Meanwhile, we require $277.00 for Robbie’s vet bill.
