O’Malley came to our rescue two years ago with horrible ear infections, gingivitis, FIV and food allergies. He was neutered and a dental was done when he first arrived here. It took several months of treatment and tests to determine that O’Malley had food allergies which were causing his skin problems and ear infections. O’Malley was put on prescription food and his ears were to be cleaned two to three times a week once the infection was under control. Four months ago, O’Malley was drooling excessively, and the vet determined that he had gingivitis again. The cost for his dental, bloodwork and fluids was just under $500, which was a financial strain for our small rescue. We applied for and were given this grant. O’Malley had his dental on Jan. 14, 2020, was rechecked by the vet on Jan. 24, and was adopted on Jan. 25! His new family loves him so much and has another special-needs cat with food allergies, so he and O’Malley have the same requirements to keep them feeling their best.
