Fallon is a sweet, beloved kitty who, unfortunately, has injured himself and desperately needs a surgery that his owners (with a 2 week old new baby) cannot afford. On June 10 Fallon's mom and dad heard a loud crash and went to investigate. They found some stuff in the baby's room disturbed and an injured Fallon. They think that maybe he'd been nosing around the baby's room (he'd been super interested in everything in there) and possibly gotten startled and jumped down funny. They rushed him to the vet and found that he has a dislocated hip and a small pelvic fracture. The vet said that basically the hip pushed up and fractured the pelvis. Fallon needs a surgery called "FHO" where they basically shave off part of the hip and put it back into place (I know that's not "technical speech", I'm just telling you what I've been told. The surgery has been quoted at $1800, which, to this family who's just had a baby, is a lot of money that they don't have. Fallon's family has been calling around trying to find a vet to do the surgery for cheaper, with no luck. They reached out to me for help. I've known these two people for almost 10 years and they are good people. They love this kitty and want him to be healed, but they just don't have the means to pay for this surgery. Time is of the essence here since Fallon has already been in pain for 2 weeks. I've been emailing, trying to find a vet to do the surgery for cheaper, but as of right now I'm going with the $1800 quote. Please donate so that this sweet kitty can get the surgery he needs. We will post all receipts on the upcoming Facebook page for Fallon called "Help Fallon the kitty to get surgery on his broken pelvis". Thank you! (Update) - Fallon early in the morning had jumped down and some how injured his other leg (the healthy leg). After i heard him yelp in pain this morning I rushed him to the vet and they said he had injured himself the same way that he had done on the previous leg, fractured the pelvis and pushed the hip bone up, A very kind person offered to help pay for fallons surgery, Fallon is in surgery now, but we still need your help, we need to help pay back the kind person that payed for fallons surgery, if you can still spare anything it would be so much help, and very much appreciated. Thank you :), if you feel more comfortable about making a donation to the vet for Fallon you can, by calling Sugar House Veterinary Hospital at (801) 487-9981. mention Fallon and they should be able to take a donation over the phone. Thank you everyone for your care and support.
