If you are familiar with my original post about my dog’s current state, being unable to walk. We finally had his evaluation appointment on January 27th.
I want to first thank everyone IMMENSELY for the the support, reblogging the first post and for those who donated. Thank you so much, it means the world to me and my dog <3
They ran some blood tests, took some x-rays, evaluated his walking (he appears only impaired on the right side front and rear) etc — From this we determined a possible diagnosis of a herniated disc in his neck area. Unfortunately, two days before his appointment he had a sick evening and developed aspiration pneumonia making it difficult to sedate him enough when they were taking the x-rays. Right now we’re taking care of him at home to clear up the pneumonia (the blood tests also showed he is extremely healthy on all other accounts) and then he’ll need more x-rays followed by a MRI which the specialist highly recommends to confirm the possible diagnosis. The MRI is going to cost $2,500. If it proves to be what the specialist thinks and is a repairable disc problem, the surgery will run $5,000-6,000.
The entirety of January was spent trying to raise extra money for him just to have an evaluation. We (a family member and myself) have spent near $2,000 already out of our own pockets ($360 raised from selling items on ebay and receiving donations from friends and kind strangers). We have other animals with medical bills and as fate would have it, all of this falls on our shoulders at once. I love my dog and he is young and healthy and he has a chance to be able to walk again, but I can’t give him that chance without help. It would mean everything if you guys could share this post or visit the following links to see how you can help. To see my buddy walking again— I would be eternally grateful. Thank you for any and all support <3
