Help bring back pet Tokyo’s smile

Hello, This is our baby, Tokyo. Tokyo unfortunately bit a wire which electrocuted part of her mouth, killing all of the blood vessels in that area. All of the skin on her lower jaw stopped receiving blood and consequently fell off. This also happened to a piece of her tongue. Shaileah received Tokyo from her previous owner, Amna, 2 weeks prior to the incident happening. While Shaileah went away for a couple days for the holidays she thought is was best to bring her back to her original home for a few days so she can see her mom & sister (Amna’s cats) the second day after she arrived they noticed something off about her jaw and took her to the vet. They said she just cut herself. Gave a few stitches and sent her on their way. The next day things got worse and they took her back to the vet & they just restitched her and put on a cone and sent her on their way. Shaileah went to Amna’s house after work on the 27th and saw Tokyo for the first time. She took her right away to an emergency vet and that was the first time any vet has mentioned potential electrocution. Since then, shaileah and Amna have been at the vet everyday with Tokyo. On Monday she received a feeding tube so she could eat without further damage to her mouth. Tokyo needs 24 hour care, so shaileah and Amna have been taking shifts watching her throughout the night. We need to wait 6 weeks until everything is fully healed and to see if the body will lose any more skin or bone. The dental specialist thinks that’s she will most likely lose part of her lower jaw. Tokyo is amazingly strong & positive during this whole ordeal. She loves kisses and cuddles and is a true fighter. The vet bills are what makes this the most difficult. If we don’t have the money to cover the surgery , then they will not operate and she will have infected bone that will be toxic to her body. We really appreciate any help given as we know It’s just after the holidays.
