URGENT, surgery needed. Felix’s tailbone broke off

Update posted by Kevin Woo On Jun 11, 2019

Hey everyone, this will be the detailed break down and update on Felix’s condition post operations, as well as the findings of the blood test. So Felix is doing well so far, he’s eating, drinking and using the litter box normally (thank goodness 🙏🏻) a little less active than his normal self but I’m guessing it’s from all the pain and stress. I have to thank Dr Sunah of Star Veterinary clinic and the staff for taking such good care of Felix! Felix was given a long lasting antibiotic inject that’ll last him 7 days as well as anti inflammatory injection and some fluids post-op for hydration. They have amputated most of his tail as keeping it would do more harm than good in the future, although I’m so sad to see his beautiful tail go, it was for the better! Felix baby is not left with a cute little nub that Dr Sunah has stitched up with an absorbable suture. That’s pretty much it for everything on the surface and now the medical and internal stuff! My notes from last night are as follows:

“White blood cells low could be due to being scared and shaken up

Red blood cells low

Platelets low but could be due to clumping because of difficult blood extraction

L is for liver functions, it’s all low and that’s good

AMY & TBIL is pancreas and GI, it’s off but must observe and see if could be FELV/FIV observation of behavior and further testing is required to determine the status of condition(s)

K is for kidney functions, it’s showing early signs of problem and it’s common with felines especially with age. Take note of CREA levels. There’s no cure but prolonging the longevity of cat by diet control and hydration monitoring are the best options

GLUcose levels are high due to stress

HILLS C/D diet is recommended for urinary care

HILLS K/D or Royal Canin Renal for protein control for kidney functions care”

(Please refer to the test results below)

Dr Sunah has advised on trying a better diet for Felix as he’s showing signs of early kidney functioning problems (very common in felines) it cannot be cured but all we can do it try to make him as healthy as possible and just delay the deterioration. I’m greatly saddened by this news, yes, he’s had bladder problems previously but hearing it again from a vet just breaks my heart one more time. I will definitely take care of Felix and provide for him the best I could! As a parent, I am not giving up and I will never, I will fight with him! 💪🏻

As for the total bill for the surgery, it was $1,480.10. So as I updated earlier that I have paid a $1000-/ deposit when I dropped Felix off at the clinic in the afternoon and the balance amount to be paid when I picked him up was $480.10 (just refer to the official receipt below!)

Last but not least! THANK YOU! I’m so humbled and heartened by everyone around me and people around you too! It’s so incredibly moving to see how everyone stepped forward and reached out when we needed it the most, I might sound like a broken record but I really cannot thank everyone enough for your contributions and for your efforts, care and concern that’s extended to us. I’m actually speechless and I don’t know what else to say but thank you, Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I’d love to come give all of you a hug if I could and also, please come visit Felix anytime if you would like! We wouldn’t be here today without all of you! :’) ❤️

P.S donor’s list update will come next and very soon as well! We’ve decided to hold on to the money from this fund raising page for just a little while, until we could ride over and in case something goes wrong. When all is well we will update you guys again and of course get you all to maybe vote for an animal shelter that we could donate the balance amount to! 😊

Hey everyone, we just got home and I’ll give you guys a brief update first! Before I break everything down as clearly as possible tomorrow! Felix is back home safe, he’s still a little blur from the sedation and anesthesia. They have amputated most of his tail and he’s left with like about 2 inches of tail 😭 his activity is normal, he came home and used the litter box, he’s yet to have any food or water but I’ll observe him closely. So the total bill of the surgery plus medications all added up to $1,480.10. I’ll update tomorrow with all the receipts/breakdown. I’m so sorry, I’m incredibly sleepy right now and I promise I will post everything first thing when I wake up. Thank you all so much for keeping up with the situation! I’m so grateful of all the kindness and care that was extended to us ❤️ Goodnight everyone

Hey everyone, the vet just gave me a call to update on Felix’s conditions, the surgery went on smoothly, and they’d want to keep him sedated and on IV drips for the time being. The vet will give me a call again at 10pm. I’ve received a piece of news that made me sad and worry...the vet told me that they detected early kidney problems, I don’t know how I’m supposed to react to that. I’m glad the surgery was good but I’m worried about his future now. Anyway I’ll update all of you again after 10pm. Much loves! Thank you 😘

Oh yes, there’s also a possibility of a resuscitation fee if it applies (I pray to god nothing like that would happen) as I have chosen to opt in to resuscitate Felix if there’s a need.

Hey everyone, I’ve just received a call from the clinic notifying me that they will proceed with the surgery now (fingers crossed) I asked about the blood test but the nurse wasn’t sure of the results and I’m told that the vet will update me on everything after the procedure.

Hey everyone! I’ve just dropped Felix off at the clinic, they will sedate him to put him on IV drip and on a catheter, in the meantime they will run some blood tests and if everything looks good or not, the vet will give me a call to update me on the blood test results and if we can proceed with the surgery. The nurse has informed me that a $1000-/ deposit would be collected first and got me to sign a consent form as well as a written estimated bill at the back. I’ve also provided the official receipt for the $1000 deposit for you guys to see and the transport taken from my home to the clinic. (I’ve crossed out sensitive personal information on all of them but if you want to take a look at the original documents, just drop me a message and I’ll send them over to you!) I couldn’t thank everyone enough for this and we will be forever grateful to you guys! ❤️

Our little fighter is doing well so far, he’s started his fast since 10am. Will make our way down to the clinic at 3pm as suggested by the vet (bringing him in too early will stress him out too much, he’s very much a homebody and tenses up everywhere else). We didn’t make our way down last night for the clavulox injection because he seems to be holding up quite well and the vet told me gave me the green light to wait it out and get him in the clinic today.

P.S. his fur looks wet because I was trying to clean out the dried blood on it to no avail...nothing came off, shall give him a good shower after everything has healed up nicely and I’ll clean his fur bit by bit everyday

Hey everyone! I just got off the phone with the vet and shes advised for us to proceed with the surgery tomorrow, I will have to let Felix fast from 10am onwards, bring him in the clinic at 3pm for them to prepare him for the procedure, when the vet handling his case arrives at 6pm that?s when they?ll start the amputation surgery thereafter. The vet has explained that Felix gets stressed out easily so they?d have to sedate him in order to secure an IV drip, attach a catheter before everything and oral medications are difficult to administer to him so they would have to give him a long lasting antibiotic injection as take home medication instead, all those thing might cost a little more. After factoring everything in, her rough draw up is at 1.5K - 1.8K now but I think I should keep it at this first until I get an official break down from them to show all of you and hopefully raise the total funds to what is needed. If there are any leftover sum after everything is done I?m looking at donating it to a humane society or animal shelter of your choice as we would like to pay the kindness forward too!

Hello everyone, I hope this finds you well. I’ve just given the clinic a call and they told me the earliest surgery would have to be tomorrow as we have to fast Felix before the procedure and I’d have to bring him down tonight for another Clavulox injection to last him another 24hrs. I will post another update after tonight’s visit with the bill breakdown and perhaps I might add another day to the campaign just so we can properly update everyone through this platform! Thank you so much for everything! I love you all!

Hi everyone we’re waiting for the clinic to get back to us on whether we can proceed with the surgery tonight, otherwise I’m bringing Felix down to the clinic again for another jab or oral antibiotics. Will update right after the visit!
