Hello, I am here to introduce Mr. Rocky, who is currently a three-year-old French Bulldog; we have been fighting this ear infection for quite some time. I have taken him to multiple vets to get different opinions on his ear, and they all told me other things. He has been to vets in Dallas, TX, and Los Angles, California, where we currently live. Remind you; that every vet visit costs me a minimum of 300 dollars. The vet prescribed him an allergy medicine called Apoquel; sure, some of you may be familiar with that. Also, a prescription is called Simplicef, which is an antibiotic medication indicated for dogs with skin infections or any bacterial infection. I added myself to a few Facebook groups to get pointers on this. I have tried Zymox Ear Cleaner- That Didn’t Work; Yeast Release Max supplements; someone told me that would help break down the Yeast Bateria- That Didn’t Work. Allergy Aid for dogs 120 Chewable tablets, Digestion- Prebiotic, Probiotics, Enzymes to help his digestion system, Pet Armor Antihistamine Diphenhydramine HCI to help for allergies a dog Benadryl, Mometamax Otic ear solution prescribed by the vet-That Didn’t Work, NaturVet Aloe & Baby Powder Scent Dog & Cat Ear Wash-That Didn’t Work, Dog Ear Powder to dry up the bacteria and again still NO LUCK. I had an insurance policy with Healthy Paws but had to cancel it in December last year due to financial hardship. So I started using my Care Credit Card, and they decided to drop my credit limit from $13K to an outstanding credit limit of $4k. Never thought that would ever happen. He is currently up to date on all of his shots.
I must say this has to be one of the hardest things to do, which is having to ask you guys for help. I have donated to a lot of different platforms on Gofundme for years now anonymously, but I never thought I would be the one making a profile. But Gofundme has been a fantastic software to help people in need. I asked for $7,500 because his first surgery cost me $4,800, not including med refills. They had to take out his whole ear canal; now, it has traveled to the other ear. I spoke to a vet out in Dallas, and she told me she might can do a TECA EAR procedure. That is still giving me a cost anywhere from $3800-5500. I have not had any sleep meanwhile woke up yesterday where Rocky was pouring blood from the side of his face. So I have been up all night waiting to rush him over to the Vet; I may have to cancel my flight today again, which I cannot AFFORD to do either. Hopefully, I can upload pictures of him currently.
So again, I do appreciate the help from Begging Money and anyone who decides to help us.
God Bless you all!
