This is not easy for me to write let alone come to terms with the fact that I’ve found myself to be in such a desperate situation with regards to my sweet pup, Ralph.
If you are unable to help Ralph, please do me a favor and share this web page as much as possible and pray for him. If will make my heart just as happy.
As many of you already know Ralph has sick on and off weeks & continues to have problems. I’m going to explain below as best I can whats been going on for those of you who want to know. If you don’t have time to read it in it’s entirety but you’re in a position to help please look under “How You Can Help Ralph” below as you will see other options besides using this site to help us & please don’t hesitate to contact me if you’d like more info as I’ll be more then happy to answer any questions & or concerns you have.
As some of you know, Ralph has had a bad past. Due to that, he has been to the vet several times & constantly monitored to make sure he healed correctly. After visiting the vet for a Urinary tract infection, Ralph was given antibiotics. He was on them for several weeks until the vet had felt the infection went away because he could pee normally again.
When I noticed something wasn’t right:
Recently I took Ralph to the bathroom, only to notice he was having a hard time relieving himself. When he finally did dribble, I saw some blood in the little drop of pee. Something wasn’t right… After several hours, a urinalysis, culture, blood test and x-rays, we found out Ralph has a urinary obstruction.
The treatment will/may include: IV’s to prevent dehydration, anesthetize, urinary catheter, scrotal urethrostomy surgery, flushing, cystotomy, a series of lab tests and possible other treatments. This all may be well over $4,000.
Why this matters so much to me:
In the past several months, I’ve went from a very toxic relationship, to the passing’s of several grandparents. I live on my own, and I’m a student. Ralph is my pride and joy, and it may sound silly- but he is all I have. If I have to work around the clock to help him, I will. But I’m not sure where to turn to at this point, with all my bills I already have.
How you can help Ralph:
I’m asking if you are in a position where it will not pose a hardship upon your own family if you could donate any amount to help get to the bottom of Ralph’s illness to help him on the road to wellness. Please seriously know each dollar is another dollar closer to getting him well it does help, no amount is too little. You can donate via this site or personally contact me if you feel it is a safer route.
I love my dog with all my heart, and I don’t want anything to happen to him.
