Mishu Grace is suffering from dilated cardiomyopathy. Your kindness and generosity is her only chance at getting the veterinary care she needs to live past age 6.
Mishu Grace is only six years old but facing a severe illness. She has a severe case of dilated cardiomyopathy. She has been hospitalized, and the veterinarian believes that if she can get her on a treatment regime, she has the potential to live anywhere from 3 months to 5 years.
She has racked up about $1,800 in emergency care and testing so far. The veterinarian thought it would be immoral to turn her away because she didn't immediately have the funds. We know that is not the case at so many vet offices, so we like this doctor. She has put the care of the cat before her practice's bottom line.
Mishu's monthly medication could end up costing as much as $150 a month. Also, she would need regular testing and follow-ups. We estimate $3000 a year if the higher treatment is required. This would be for the remainder of her life, or up to a specific point that we determine with the owner.
Mishu's owner is currently undergoing chemotherapy and fighting her own fierce battle. She also lives on a fixed income. The veterinarian has vouched for her being an excellent pet owner and a good person.
Thanks to the immediate support the Facebook post received, Mishu was stabilized and sent home to rest with her mom. She will be following up with the veterinarian next week.
Please donate toward her ongoing care.
Mishu had her first check-up after her major hospitalization. She is doing much better. The veterinarian reports that Mishu's lungs are much more clear, her heart has decreased in size, and her breathing has vastly improved.
Thank you for caring about Mishu and giving her a chance at life.
Mishu does love her veterinarian, who is incredibly kind and patient. But, she was still ready to get out of the office and planted herself firmly in her carrier to tell mom it was time to go. LOL.
