Kittie was found limping after a cat fight on my street and I rushed her to Bdr Puteri Vet clinic. She had punctured wound and pale mucous membrane. Dr Edmund took her blood reading and found that her PCV was 9.5%. After two weeks of antibiotics, she became weaker and stopped eating. I sent her back to Dr Edmund. Her PCV dropped to an alarming 6%. Blood transfusion was needed to save her and I rushed home to collect 2 of my community cats to donate blood. Since her PCV was too low, Dr Edmund could not do any cross-match and proceeded with the blood transfusion with blood drawn from Sunny Boy, who was found to be FELV and FIV negative and fit to donate.
Kittie was boarded at the clinic as Dr Edmund wanted to monitor her progress in case her body rejects the donated blood and he needs to measure her PCV periodically. Her PCV increased to 10% on Sunday and Dr Edmund suggested Retromad which can be obtained from Klinik Wawasan. Kitty was tested FELV+.
On the day she was discharged, Kittie's PCV went up to 16.5%. She is now recuperating at my place and still being force-feed AD only. I am praying that her PCV will continue to increase and she recovers fast. Her total bill amounts to RM680. She will be required for follow-up visit to check on her PCV as it is currently way below the 40% of a normal cat.
I would like to appeal for financial assistance, thank you very much.
