Tomorrow is a big day for our little Chloe. We are all a little worried, but even more hopeful.
She has spent the week under the supervision of Dr. Wright and his staff at Lithonia Animal Hospital. She is still not eating, and her terrible teeth are causing infections, issues with chewing, etc. They have to come out … and they have to come out now.
The caveat is her condition: She is still underweight and trying to get strong. Unfortunately, she can’t do so with this these teeth. Surgery is a risk, but we will definitely lose her if we don’t take it. That being the situation, she will be given the same anesthesia that humans receive. If there are any complications or she appears to be at-risk, they can bring her out quickly.
Despite that consolation, we are all a little nervous. We have all fallen in love with this little fighter, who refuses to give up. She just wants to get it over with and out of there – and she’s not hesitant to let us know. We swear she gave us the evil eye to let her go out and play when we saw her today. 😉
Surgery is scheduled for the morning. We will have volunteers at her side to be with her and keep us updated.
As you might expect, her vet bill has soared. We are so thankful to those of you who have reached out to us. Please, know that every dollar truly makes a difference and we thank each and every one of you. (You will all receive a thank you letter/receipt soon.)
