KIT KAT

Appeal Closed
26/8/12  APPEAL FOR KIT KAT
was critically ill with ruptured bladder
.
Total cost  $6,500.00
 
“Hi, I’m Kit Kat. Everyone says I’ve a very brave boy.”

26/8/12 Kit Kat was critically ill with a ruptured bladder. SASH concluded that he must have jumped or fallen with a full bladder, causing a tiny hole in his bladder. Poor little Kit Kat was so ill, he nearly died, but with SASH’s expert care Kit Kat made it through his surgery on 29/8/12  and he has now fully recovered. He was so amazingly brave. He was only hours away from death when delivered to SASH, and at midnight on the first night, SASH advised his test results were off the scale. We were all so worried. The next morning after treatment, his results were back to normal!
Kit Kat finished his recuperation at Kirrawee vet where everyone gave him lots of care and attention. Dr Joanna said “What an amazing little cat!” And he is too.
He is now back home and enjoying life again. he is due to go back for a check up shortly,

SMUDGE



Appeal closed
29/7/12 APPEAL FOR SMUDGE
Taken ill suddenly - hospital stay + tests. Costs $1923.30
“Everyone said I was a sweet and brave little kitten.”.

29/7/12 Smudge had been vomiting throughout the night. It started suddenly without any apparent reason. He was taken immediately to the vet and stayed in hospital overnight. He is still bright but a little quiet and still some vomiting. Currently on fluids to help him feel better. Dr Leah and Kirrawee vet are taklng good care of him.
30/7/12 Smudge has been in hospital at Kirrawee vet all day. Was vomiting through last night and has been on a drip most of day,
Smudge has tonight been transferred to SASH where he is being put on a drip and will be having blood tests and an x-ray to determine the cause of his condition.
31/7/12 Midday
Little Smudge is being cared for by Dr Melissa at SASH. Melissa advised us this morning that. His first chest x ray is clear. He was tested for Feline Aids and Feline Leukemia and this test was also clear. He has a slight temperature of 39.5 degrees this morning. The biggest concern is that his white cell count is very low, putting him at risk of developing Sepsis which would be life threatening. SASH is doing further tests and will repeat his x-ray and do an ultrasound. The diagnosis is still unclear. Some possibilities could be an infection, a gastro bug, reaction to medication, or perhaps an underlying condition. Or he may have swallowed something possibly chewed off from a toy. It could even be related to a change of diet. At this stage little Smudge’s condition is serious but not life threatening.  SASH advises that he will need to be in hospital for at least 4 days. This will be expensive but little Smudge is worth it. We will be working hard to fundraise to cover his treatment costs which will be updated when SASH sends us the new estimate. We have checked with the new owner of Smudge’s litter mates and they are all well and happy in their new home.
31/7/12 4pm Report from SASH
Smudge is responding well to anti nausea medication and antibiotics and feeling better. He is walking around his pen, bright and alert, and talkative as usual. He has been eating some Science Diet a/d today.His temperature is back to normal. He has not had any more vomiting. He has tested negative for Feline Parvo virus, but this could always be a false negative so needs to be double checked by the lab.His white cell count which is very important, will be re-tested on Thursday. This was seriously low today. Smudge is being a very brave boy. SASH staff are taking good care of our little Smudge.
We have just received an estimate of the costs which could be around $3000
31/7/12 8pm Report from SASH
Smudge’s temperature is at the high end of normal. He has eaten tonight. No more other adverse symptoms noted
1/8/12 10am – Report from SASH vet
Smudge’s blood tests came back from the lab last night and they were much better than expected. His white cell count is higher than it was. He is eating well and behaving normally this morning..Vet Lisa says he has a good chance of making a full recovery. He needs to stay in hospital for a further 24 hours observation.
Smudge has recovered well and is now 100%. Hooray for little Smudge!

MOLLY (DOG)


Appeal closed
Feb' 2012 - MOLLY
Abandoned in her twilight years
Treatment costs $1900
 
Melanoma on Molly's head        

Little Molly was sadly lost and abandoned in her twilight years and sat in the pound waiting for a new home.
She had a myriad of health issues, being 10 yrs old and neglected and had no real prospects for a future and was due to be euthanized.We helped a lovely girl, Billie, rescue Molly and she is now an integral part of a loving family. Due to Molly’s age and neglect, she suffered from blindness in both eyes due to dry eyes, which has luckily cleared up now but her other health issues required surgery. Molly had  lumps on her mammary glands and head (4 in all), 1 of which turned out to be a melanoma. Due to the cancerous nature of melanoma, Molly underwent further tests including x-rays, ultrasounds and biopsies along with blood work to see if the cancer had spread. With a weight lifted, we happily report that she has the all clear now and is improving every day and enjoying her loving care.

Molly's vet bill has been growing and growing. We now need your help to help Molly recover in full and find her furever home so she can live her years out in a loving and peaceful home.

GINGIE

 


Appeal Closed

Feb' 2012 - LITTLE GINGIE - HIT BY A CAR
NEEDED MAJOR SURGERY Gingie's Total treatment costs came to $1958.00

On Wednesday 22nd February 2012, little Gingie was brought to the Animal Referral Hospital (ARH). Sydney Pet Rescue was contacted as Gingie's microchip has been recorded against the charity however we are unable to locate his record/owners in our system.
The very kind Daniella who picked this little guy up off the road on her way home from work. She said that when she found Gingie he was desperately trying to climb up an embankment, but of course he couldn't manage. ARH said he has a lovely temperament, sweet and affectionate and that he deserves a chance. They didn't realise though how extensive the injuries were as the x rays had not been done at that stage. 

He is in bad shape but not currently life threatening. He has a badly broken jaw and a shattered pelvis. SASH thinks they could put him back together and he would have better than 50% chance of a good outcome following surgery and intensive rehabilitation but the rehabilitation period would be long and challenging. He would not be able to go to the toilet  independently possibly for some weeks and he would likely need to be syringe or tube fed for a while. The intensive nursing period that the charity would have to take on could likely last for months.

Update: 26th February 2012.
Sadly we had to make the hard decision today to put the beautiful Gingie to sleep. His bone marrow was not regenerating.The specialist could not work out why. He was developing medical complications which would have been on top of the surgical problems with his badly broken jaw and shattered pelvis. His poor little body was just too damaged. Despite all this he still continued to polish off every bowl of food. It was a tough decision but the specialist said that this was the best decision for Gingie. It seemed we had no choice.

Rest in peace little man. We are all thinking of you as you bound through the meadows of Rainbow Bridge, chasing butterflies and rolling in Catnip.

We would like to say a huge thank you to all the wonderful and caring staff at the Animal Referral Hospital, Kirrawee Vet and SASH. Your support and care throughout this heartbreaking time has been much appreciated by all.

We desperately need donations to cover the vet care provided to Gingie.

LEIA

 


Feb' 2012 - LEIA - SEVERE ALLERGIC REACTION TO FLEAS
appeal closed

Leia is our most special bunny- her transformation from frightened, sickly bunny cramped in the pound and forgotten about was truly inspiring. She is the most affectionate and quirky character you will meet.

Leia has endured some tough trials, and now she is being tested once again. Leia has had a severe allergic reaction to fleas. These fleas are super resistant to treatment and have caused Leia so much grief and frustration she has self-inflicted wounds on her body. Leia has had a collar on but managed to free herself of her collar whilst her carer was away. She required stitches all down the side of her body and has been recovering in hospital. This has been very stressful for her and those who love her.

Leia is seeing specialists, vets and being boarded whilst we try to figure out how best to treat this extreme condition. 

These costs are large for a not-for-profit charity, run on generosity and volunteers.

If you can give small or big, we would appreciate it. 

If you are able to donate time to fostering, transporting, any bunny products (puppy/kitty Advantage and Revolution are greatly appreciated) then contact us on 0405175511 or contact the rabbit co-ordinator on claredm@hotmail.com

Thank you from this little angel in advance, please keep her in your positive thoughts.

BIG bunny kisses from Leia from all of those who have donated so far...

25/1/11 APPEAL FOR MOBY
X-ray & treatment for tail injury - cost $300

25/1/11 Poor Moby has an injury towards the top of his tail possibly caused by a fall onto his tail. He was taken to Dr Bill Illkin at Kirrawee Vet Hospital where he has had an X-ray and was given a pain relieving injection. He also had to have 2 enemas as he was constipated, possibly related to his tail injury. He  has been prescribed rest and needs to stay in a pen till his next vet visit in a weeks time.
4/2/11  Moby had a recheck today. He is recovering well. He is gaining more movement on his tail and the swelling has reduced significantly.  Dr IIlkin advised to still keep him on the pain killer and constipation medicine until they finish and Moby will recover with time. Moby does not need to be in confinement any longer and he is very happy to get his freedom back.

Moby sends lots of purrs and thanks to the generous people below x x x

LOLA

 


Appeal closed
August 2011 APPEAL FOR LOLA
treatment costs $868.00


Lola is a very sweet girl who has not had the best start to her life, healthwise. Just before we rescued Lola from the pound, everyone thought she was pregnant because her tummy was so huge. One of our carers kept visiting Lola and didn’t believe she was pregnant,so she was checked by a vet and it turned out the poor girl was severely blocked up and couldn’t go to the toilet, and had a raging tummy infection because of it. Lola would have probably died form her infection if it had not been caught in time.

When we first got her into care, her tummy infection was so bad, it took a few courses of antibiotic to settle it down and get rid of it. Then the sweet girl got the most horrid rashes and skin irritations and was very itchy and pink under all that white fur.
She was seen multiple time by the vet and given antihistamines, antibiotics etc. The skin irritation never completely went away but settled down a lot.
Lola was recently desexed and then suffered a complication and had another severe infection. This landed the poor girl at SASH for specialist treatment and she was touch and go for a few days. Happily, Lola has recovered from all these issues and now has been adopted into a great new home, with a new name LAYLA, where hopefully, she’ll live out the rest of her life free of health issues.

Lola sends lots of woofs and thanks to the generous people below x x x
