Help pay for Mowgli cat’s dental cost

Update posted by Shanley Stone On Jul 27, 2018

Further communication with my veterinary clinic has happened and they have let me know that the estimated costs are looking to be between $750 - 800 (New Zealand dollars). They have also said the procedure will now definitely include a pre anaesthetic blood test, intravenous fluids, a Grade 4 Dental, Post-op pain relief and Antibiotics.

This is all for the purpose of looking after her teeth and to make sure Mowgli is going to make it through this procedure.

Furthermore, since the amount of pain she's in seems to be increasing and affecting food intake more regularly (she is hissing after eating now, as if to almost cough in order to push food or tartar off her teeth for example) this cannot wait much longer. And so the Vets have thankfully agreed to put through a payment plan for the procedure, as long as a minimum of a 50% deposit is made.

This means we will now be able to arrange a date for the procedure, that being (hopefully!) next week. This is a very nervous time and though there is not the full amount available I am glad to say that solely I have managed to put enough money together to pay for just over half of her dental costs (about $500) as the vets require.

However there is not enough to pay for all of it and any donations would be of great help, even a little would go towards the costly food (as it would be far more nutritional) which would be a great help in keeping her weight up, especially during such a stressful time for her, she is already just able to keep up her weight of almost 3kg which quite a relief as of late.

This is the best photo at this time for a look at some of her teeth. She is missing a front canine but it seemed best to show you all one side of her mouth. Maybe this will shine some more light on things and show you all what is going on, at least a little.
The more Mowgli and me work on other issues, such as flea care (combing difficulty as she use to have mats and some part still are a bit knotty therefore I only really comb near and around the spine) the more it becomes clear that her mouth is also causing her some pain.
Opening her mouth is not something we like to do as it stresses her out a tad and it can be difficult to open her mouth because she doesn't like anyone touching her teeth or even her mouth for similar or obvious reasons.

It's noticeable at this point while watching it get worse as I try to save up.
If you would like to help and are able to then could you possibly chip in?
Not expecting the whole cost sorted by you guys... but it would be lovely if anyone could help in any way.
Many thanks to you all
