Save Kobe! He Needs Emergency Surgery
Hello, My name is Kobe. I am a Shiba Inu which just turned 2 years old 10/1/13. My mom, Amanda, has owned me since I was just 3 months old and we are the love of each others life. We are also always by each others side when we feel down, having a bad day, or just to cuddle. I am such a good and happy boy, but have been extremely sick since Friday, 10/11/13, and need liver shunt surgery. Vets say I am an excellent candidate for the surgery and want to do surgery on Tuesday 10/15/13.
Unfortunately, my mom has already used up available funds and my $2,300 Care Credit. The quoted cost of surgery, including the blood transfusion, is estimated between $2,200 and $2,700. She has also tried to negotiate a payment plan of any sort and the option is not available. Without surgery I may not make it.
My Vet information is below if you would like to check on my status:
Plaza Boulevard Pet Hospital
Dr. Bohn & Dr. Khaleel
My mom is reaching out to find out any information on foundations that could assist in getting "her baby boy" surgery and get me back to my happy, healthy, playful, and loving life. I don't know what I will do without mom, and mom doesn't know what she would do without me.

When I took him to the Emergency center last Friday his CBT & PCV/TP test were off the charts & his liver levels had to be diluted 5 times just for Doc to get a manual count; which makes the level at 35,000 (highest Doc has ever seen).....he is now at a normal/healthy low 400.
I am so thankful to everyone who made this possible. THANK YOU ~ Kobe, Oliver (lil' bro), & I
Kobe looks so handsome next to the Christmas tree. So happy to hear he is doing well :)
If that foundation denied his case, what does that mean? Can't he just have the surgery tomorrow?
Ugh, I hope you make your goal! Looking at the photo of him with what looks like blood below, breaks my heart! I cant look. But I did donate and shared this link. Keep us posted.
what a horrible vet service that won't work with you on emergency surgery. what is wrong them! I wish I could donate, I would pay for the whole thing if I could.
just donated $10, hope you get the total amount soon xxx
