2/22/24 – Harmony was dropped off in the middle of the road and it appeared to be missing her upper lip. Voices for Community Cats contacted us to see if we could help and if we could, they would take her in to their rescue. Harmony was seen at Orion Animal Hospital. Harmony was found to have an ulcerated paw pad, patchy alopecia, a wound on her mouth , and severe rodent ulcers.

According to Catster: “Rodent ulcer is an allergic reaction with any number of causes that results in unsightly, often painful lesions around a cat’s lips, chin, inside the mouth, and in some cases, other parts of the body. It’s most common in younger cats aged two and under, and female cats. If left untreated, this can result in permanent disfigurement.” Harmony did have a tipped ear. She is fiv/felv negative. Harmony did receive a steroid injection and will be seen again within the next two weeks. – diana
