The middle of September Spider, my lovable fur baby - cat, ended up having liver failure. Spider got really sick and stopped eating, At first I thought he was being picky but nope he was not feeling well. When cats do not eat their liver stores fat, survival mood. In the end storing fat makes the liver stop working.
The problem has caught me off guard and running low on funds to pay for the all the extras. The vet bills have added up to $900, but the cost have not stopped.
To fix the liver damage and help Spider get better, a tube needed to put into his neck down to his stomach. The tube is for putting special food into his stomach so his system thinks it is eating and hopefully releases the fat in his liver. The end game Spider eating on his own without a tube.
The on going cost is the special food and weekly vet visits. Each bottle of special food cost $9 and last for 4 feedings. He need 4 to 6 feedings a day. A weekly set of bottle comes to $72 a week. Plus the weekly vet visit of $20. $92 a week until Spider is fully is back to himself. Right now I am thinking 10 weeks, in the end it is up to Spider on how long. Around $1,000 for those ten weeks. Anything extra will towards any extra care Spider needs. Extra vet care, xrays if needed, and or extra weeks of food - if goes longer then 10 weeks or previous vet bills.
I am asking for help so Spider can kick liver failure in the butt.
I would grateful for any help. Any help means less stress on me and all my focus on getting Spider what he needs.
Thank you for your kind hearts. Spider is my world. The one face I forward to seeing when I get home every day.
