Hi everyone, I would like to introduce you to Stoney. We met Stoney on http://www.catster.com/cats/819881 and he desperately needs our help. Stoney has a really bad tooth infection. The abscess on Stoney's tooth "has made a hole in [his] cheek where pus leaks out." The side of Stoney's face has swollen up as a result of this and his third eyelid is now almost completely covering his whole eye as a result.
Stoney's owner has some pictures of what is going on with Stoney on his "ChipIn," website. (I felt the pictures where to graphic to post here and didn't want to upset any children who may be visiting Moki's blog.) At this time I do not know what the cost of Stoney's procedure will be, but I have asked Stoney's owner to please get a written estimate from Stoney's vet and post it to his ChipIn site. Stoney's infection looks really bad and he should be seen by a doctor immediately. As many of you are probably aware, infections such as Stoney's if left untreated, can spread throughout his whole body killing him in no time. If you would like to help Stoney get the medical attention he so desperately needs, please visit his ChipIn website to make a donation.
MRI Image Update:
On a different note, the disk with the MRI images came from UC Davis today. Unfortunately, the file folders contained no actual files, nor did the disk contain the special file reader need to view them. As a result, I had to contact UC Davis and ask that another disk please be sent. They informed me that sometimes this happens when writing a CD, and that they would send out a new one immediately. Unfortunately that means it will be a few more days before we can share all of the images with you. As for Moki's neurologist, we are still waiting to hear back from him. I left him a voice mail yesterday so I hope to hear back from him either sometime tonight or tomorrow.
