Hermione’s Amputation Surgery

Hermione was born with radial hypoplasia and cerebral hypoplasia. Other than being a little wobbly and having twisty legs, these conditions never effected her and haven’t stopped her from acting like a normal playful kitten. Recently she has been having seizure-like episodes. These episodes seem to be from an issue not related to her radial and cerebral hypoplasia. They’ve caused her to chew at her paw three times in the past year. The last time it was to the point where she had chewed down to the bone. At this point the vet and I decided that the best thing to do would be to amputate the limb. They advised against a partial amputation because it would take longer to heal and there was the chance she would chew at it again. It’s been over a week since the surgery and she has healed beautifully and is already hopping around like before ❤️

The surgery cost just over $4,600 (not including pre and post-op care). If you are able to help at all we would be extremely grateful!
