So glad everything is looking up for you!!  The new price for the surgery is MUCH better for your situation, and it’s awesome the SPCA is helping you out.  I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Soon2bee, it is SO hard to make decisions about life versus death versus quality of life! Please keep us updated and I will send healthy kitty vibes to your little girl. Just remember no matter what happens, you have given her a very happy life and for that, you are amazing!

I’m so glad you are feeling better and are getting answers. Since we went through so much with our dog, it might help to tell you to try not to buy the meds directly from the vet’s office. Mine was great in knowing the costs of things up front and would often write me a script to fill at Walmart that was often just $4.  The pharmacist even asked to talk to me a few times about my dog and her progress since she was on so many things at various times, as he rarely filled prescriptions from veterinarians. When you’re constantly needing medications for them it really adds up and you need to save wherever you can!

I hope you can get some rest now and relax a bit. Sounds like she’s in good hands!

@Soon2beeMrsM,

I’m glad your kitty is doing better. It sound slike you have some more affordable options even if extracting her teeth occurs. It sucks, but your kitty is still loved. I think cats are different from people in that they can TRULY be happy despite the ailments they posess. I don’t think my cat even KNEW he had ringworm to the point it almost killed him. They just want to be loved. Esp rescue cats.

Your pharmacy may be able to order in animal meds. Price them out–if you don’t have pet insurace, pharmacies are competitive businesses. I learned this too late. Turns out the medication would’ve been like $25 cheaper at Sam’s Club. I got my cat’s fungal medications from Walgreens. His ear drops, too.

Lots of things used for our pets are the same as are used by people. Dosage amounts need to be figured differently,but our dog was on Pepcid (extra strength) OTC almost the whole time as well as Clindamycin, Amoxicillin, Flagyl,Prednisone, Doxycycline and Cephalexin. Others were strictly prepared by and dispensed by the vet. Yours is pretty cheap, so its just something to keep in mind.

i’m so glad to hear that she’s doing better 🙂 

I just had to take my fiance’s cat to the vet to get his teeth rechecked; he had a major cleaning/pulling back in Sept. His teeth are crappy too, he’s now on a special food (Science Diet T/D) for cats with dental problems and he’ll be getting antibiotics once a month to try and clear up his gingivitis.

Ha and he also peed in the carrier as I was putting him in the car this morning! So he was late for his appt because I had to drag him back inside and wash him. Brats!
