Poor Luna…back to the vet hospital.
Luna is an amazing girl. She was rescued a few months ago at 5 months of age weighing only 3 1/2 pounds, literally starving to death. Read about her initial plight.
Just when we thought Luna was ready for adoption, she had a recurring upper respiratory infection (URI). We took her back to the vet and discovered she has a dental condition called stomatitis. This is a painful inflammation of a cat’s gums (and sometimes elsewhere in their mouth). In Luna’s case, her vet thinks the stomatitis had caused her recurring URI because the inflammation was affecting her nose and throat.
Luna was placed on antibiotics again and just returned to her foster home after a dental cleaning and the extraction of 12 teeth! This treatment should dramatically improve her condition. We will know more in a couple of weeks after her recheck with the vet mid-November 2019.
If you would like to help us continue to provide care for this wonderful little kitty, please consider being her Guardian Angel.
Thank you Janet and Debbie – again – for being Luna’s Guardian Angels.
