My dear sweet Oliver kitty, who many have come to love and cuddle, has been having what seem to be asthma attacks or allergic reactions. This used to be managed by a steroidal allergy shot, but the Colorado air and other factors seem to be exacerbating his symptoms. Now his attacks are more severe, and more frequent.
After watching a video of Oliver's "asthma attack", my vet is suggesting he could have an upper respiratory issue as well. To assess this, he needs to do chest and head X-rays. Each frame costs $87, and they may need up to 4 frames.
I cannot afford this alone at this time, and yet I cannot afford to let my Olive suffer through difficulty breathing. I'm asking for love and support from my community.
Every dollar helps. (Though I think there is a ten dollar minimum donation on here.) I will accept any help I can get. If you'd like to send a personal check instead, it can be written to "Pet Menders Animal Hospital", Oliver's vet clinic in Boulder. (If you send a check directly to Pet Menders, [address can be googled] PLEASE specify that it is meant for Oliver Nemire specifically.)
I also have requested my landlord to clean the air ducts, and she very firmly said she would NOT pay for this routine service. (Rude.) So, any money donated beyond the cost of the X-rays would go toward cleaning out our air ducts so we may all breathe clean air. Air duct cleaning would cost several hundred dollars. :(
Thank you, and bounds of love to you.
