‘Marty’- Snake nearly snatched tabby cat’s life

‘Marty’ the dear DSH tabby cat was bitten by a snake on Saturday nearly two weeks ago. ‘Marty’ is the much-loved pet of Bev who adores all of her animals passionately. After noticing that her active boy had stopped playing and had gone somewhat limp, she rushed him to the local vets for assistance. Delatite Veterinary Services were fantastic in getting the tabby some help, and they knew that with the pension Bev received it was going to be beyond her financial reach to save his life.

Dr. Katherine got in touch with PMC directly and told us what was required to help the kitty from certain death, which was all we needed to hear. PMC took on the management of the case and helped with the financial side of it also. After a dose of antivenin ‘Marty’ began to turn the corner and start eating again. ‘Marty’ needed to remain in hospital on supportive care for 4-5 days, which added to the cost enormously.

“Delatite vet has been terrific – well managed and all the staff is wonderful. Delatite vet deserves to be congratulated on being so helpful and flexible and putting the pet’s needs first. Anna Manning and the staff are fabulous. I still need to find quite a bit of money and how to find this is unknown but I’ll pay it off slowly”. Said the ever hopeful, Bev

“PMC’s help is terrific – it means to me that I don’t have to be so anxious and the vet can keep doing their great work.”

Bev suffered a severe head trauma a while back and it has impacted her life badly since. Her short-term memory is almost non-existent and she is unable to work any longer after what was quite a successful career prior to the incident. Bev has no family support and loves her animals like they are her children, they comfort and help with her mental well being greatly.

Pet Medical Crisis relies on public donations to assist pensioners and disadvantaged owners who cannot afford life-saving veterinary care.
