Brittle Bone disease is a rare genetic disorder that affects human children and other mammals. The bones are deficient in collagen, making them prone to breakage. Melody needs orthopedic surgery to help mend this fracture, and she will need life-long treatment to help her bones get stronger, although I'm not certain human-developed medications for this disease can be tolerated by cats.
Melody's surgery may require metal pins or even a metal rod inserted into the affected bone to help support it. I've found widely-ranging costs for orthopedic surgery for cats, so the amount is my best guess for what we need for her surgery and related treatment. We need to have this surgery as soon as possible, before scarring occurs on the bone.
Melody is only 8 years old, and in otherwise excellent health. She is sweet and intelligent, and a wonderful companion animal. Please help her live a few more years.
Also, even if you cannot donate, please share this on Facebook. My Facebook account login has been broken for months now, and I cannot post it there. Thank you!
