Several recent wild fire patients are currently being treated at our veterinary hospital. We are offering our professional services in the treatment of these pets free of charge to the owner. However we are needing to spend significant amounts of money on wound care, anaesthetics, antibiotics and constant pain relief for these pets suffering from these burns. We would like to find a way that these costs are not passed onto the owner as some of these owners have also lost their houses in the fire.
Catness the cat was caught in the fire storm that happened on the property of the owner. The owners thought that Catness had perished in the fire. However to their surprise they found that Catness had survived the fire storm by taking refuge in an abandoned car. Unfortunately Catness still suffered severe burns and singing to the face and ears as well as burns to the paws. Catness is currently in a serious condition having the burns treated. The cat is on intravenous fluids, antibiotics and pain relievers. She is also in an oxygen cage due to smoke inhalation.

He will need to spend many days in our veterinary hospital and remains heavily sedated on pain relieving intravenous fluids and medications. Ridge needs general anaesthesia when ever the wounds are cleaned and re bandaged. Unfortunately, when it is time for Ridge to go home. there will be no home to go to as the owner has lost the home in the fires.
