Hello, my name is Ginna Sierra. 11 years ago, I saw a group of kids throwing rocks & making noise outside my house. When I went outside to see what was going on, I saw that they were throwing these rocks at a small puppy that looked like she had just been born. I chased the boys off, then I took the puppy to my house. She (the dog) was too young to eat any kind of food, so I fed her through a baby bottle. I decided to name her Pinky. Ever since then, she has been by my side as my best friend & my protector for all these years.
Now 11 years later, I noticed some growths on and around her nipples. Sometimes they would bleed. So I took her to the veterinarian only to be told that they could not operate because she has a bad heart (I don’t know why they just now discovered this as I take her to the vet regularly). The veterinarian found a leaky valve in her heart. On top of that, they said her heart is almost 2 times the size of a normal heart, 1.7 times larger to be precise.
Now I’m faced with buying heart medication (Pimocard) plus Laxis that I can’t afford ($100usd/month total for the meds) as well as a surgery to remove the tumors on her nipples (around $1,000usd because she has many tumors and will need extra care because of her heart). I know my dog is not going to live forever, but she is my world and I can’t imagine losing her. Especially if it’s because I wasn’t able to get her the proper medical care.
If anyone has anything extra to spare in order to help me and my dog, I would be forever grateful. I’m really ashamed to even have to come here to ask for help, but this is my last option.
