Lt. Dan, sweet upstate kitty needing paw operation, has been hospitalized

Lt. Dan, the kitten born without a paw, has now been hospitalized and isn't doing well. This Examiner article covered his story.

The Community Pet Project reported on their Facebook page January 12 that Lt. Dan is now under the care of Dr. Eaves at Magnolia Animal Hospital after four emergency visits. Dr. Eaves is one of the clinics owner's, and Lt. Dan's mom is employed there.

After a thorough examination, Lt. Dan was hospitalized and put on steroid antibiotics in his IV, and is also receiving pain medication. Unfortunately, an x-ray has shown both lungs are cloudy, leaving the concern on whether Lt. Dan has developed viral pneumonia.

Mom is very happy that Dr. Eaves is now over the care of her kitty, and believes in his ability to monitor Lt. Dan's progress and save his little life.

The plan to amputate Lt. Dan's leg can't happen until he's physically able to survive the operation.

This all costs money. The vet bill as of today is just over $600, and will go higher since treatment now also includes hospitalization. The Community Pet Project has a YouCaring page set up here to help offset expenses. Over $1,000 has been donated with a goal of $1,200.

Even if this goal is surpassed, chances are that Lt. Dan may need the extra funds, considering the specialized emergency care he's now receiving.

If you don't feel comfortable using an online fundraiser, payments can be mailed directly to The Community Pet Project at the address below.
