Pets Animal Welfare Treatment

Our boy Gavin is 5 years old, we have raised him since he was two days old. He went missing overnight and returned two days later in a lot of pain. When we rushed him to the vet we then discovered he had been hit by a car. He is very lucky to be alive as he has a fractured mandible bone (lower jaw), a fractured maxilla bone (upper jaw), facial and left eye trauma and soft palette damage. He is currently staying at a specialist after hours vet to receive round the clock care and will continue to stay there as he needs a feeding tube and lots of medication. He will need surgery to reconstruct his face so that he is able to shut his mouth and eat again and return to being a healthy cat. The bill for hospitalisation has already reached thousands and the surgery will be much more. It is estimated the final bill will be around $7000 but every little bit counts. Trying to do everything I can to make him well again, he is a much loved family member and we all miss him and can’t wait for him to be well enough to come home.

**Update, he has had the surgery and is back home (please read the updates for more) The final total ended up being $9347.87 but I'm unable to change the goal.

A huge thank you to everyone that has donated so far, we are incredibly overwhelmed xx

Funds raised will be used to help pay for the overall vet bill which includes surgery, hospitalisation, ct scan, medication and care
