I am in dire need of financial assistance to help save my dog, Nicki.
Her medical problems started back in January. Very suddenly she needed to urinate every 30-60 minutes. We took her to her veterinarian’s office and ruled out a urinary tract infection.
She has had many tests done, including multiple urine tests, blood tests, x-rays and ultrasounds. She has been given four different types of antibiotics, each lasting ten days, but none cleared up her issues.
She needs more extensive testing done, including one that needs to be sent out of state for a diagnosis. All they know for sure is that her bladder is badly inflamed.
Our vet is awesome and has let us defer some of our payments to them. The bills have gotten out of control and now our family finances have greatly suffered. I don’t have anything left for any more testing that needs to be done.
I know Nicki does not have much time left. When her health problems began, she weighed 59 pounds. As of a couple of days ago, she was down to 38 pounds. Our vet remains very optimistic and insists that he wants to try to save her and does not want to have to put her to sleep. I trust his opinion and have for almost 20 years.
She is so miserable, but still remains the sweetest dog. She has these soulful eyes which makes it harder for me to look at her knowing that I have failed her. I just can’t let her down. I won’t go into all the stories I have about her, but will just say she has been a truly wonderful dog.
The dollar amount needed at this time is $2700.00. I know this is a terrible time for so many with the horrible virus around the world. I have helped others before on these types of sites, but never thought I would ever be here asking for help. I didn’t realize how scared and embarrassed someone must be to ask for help in this way.
If anyone has any questions for me, I will give you any information that I can. I will also be updating this page if that is allowed.
I don’t expect anything for free. I have been trying to sell everything I can, but the money just isn’t coming in fast enough and I am now out of time. I am more than willing to pay people back, or pay it forward-whichever you would decide. I don’t have any social media accounts myself, so if any of you would be willing to share Nicki’s story, I would very much appreciate it.
