Just a little over a year ago, Tora started coughing. I never heard a cat cough before. I heard him sneeze, it was cute and it doesn’t happen very often. I started to get worried when it doesn’t go away after a week so I had to go to a veterinary clinic.
Just for reference, I showed them a video where Boiboi (Tora) is coughing. He also was vomitting. I tried to insert it here but for some reason it wouldn’t load.
Anyway, they did an x-ray, ultra sound and said there’s something off. Please note that this was a year ago.
They said there was a possible fluid in there so they need to do another exam to extract what’s in there.
This is what they got.
This was all the options that were given to me. I was in disbelief when I knew that cats’ treatment is much more expensive than a person. The doctor suggested giving Tora steroid which could potentially help his breathing.
After a year, cough became much worse. So the other day I got him checked again. It wasn’t looking good. Compared to last year’s scan— it looked clouded all over. They said they can’t do anything for him anymore.
The doctor suggested for us to go to a big animal hospital. I asked about the expenses but they said it will most likely cost me around ¥500000 or 5000 USD including CT scans, surgery and after care.
Because of Covid-19, I lost my job last April. I finally got a job which will start 3rd week of June. I’ve always paid everything myself because I can handle it. But just this time, I am hopeful for some help even just for half of it. Thank you so much for your time to read. Here are some photos of the cute boi.
