Because of the urgency of the situation we have put a deposit down for diagnostic testing and we are waiting on the results.

Shadow finally has a Diagnosis
September 29, 2021 12:00 AM

After extensive testing he has a diagnosis. Shadow has been diagnosed with Saddle Thrombus a serious and sometimes fatal complication of heart disease in cats. A blood clot broke loose from his heart and moved to his lower abdomen causing his rear limbs to swell due to a lack of oxygen and nutrients - paralyzing his back legs.

Shadow is being treated for pain, anti-clot medications and fluid therapy. His mom said that today, Shadow stood up for a whole minute without falling over. He is making remarkable progress!

We are praying that the medication dissolves the clot and Shadow keeps improving.

Shadow is not improving
September 22, 2021 12:00 AM

We are sad to hear that the medication Shadow was given over the weekend is not working. He is still unable to stand up and walk. He has a follow up visit with his veterinarian this week for bloodwork and an evaluation. We hope this handsome boy gets better fast.

We will have more updates soon.
