Hello, my name is LuLu. I'm 1year and 5months old, I'm a Miniature Dachshund little girl. I've been sick for awhile and doctors recently found out that I have some intestine problems. I told it could be one of these three diseases, Inflammatory bowel disease, Intussusception or Cancer. I'm scheduled for more tests and need to have a biopsy to find out which one it is. My tummy is big and swollen and I don't have much energy lately. Mommy is working so hard to cover these medical expenses but there very costly and it's getting very hard for her to afford so I've decided to ask my friends for help. It doesn't have to be a large amount, just few bucks, whatever you can give will help me and mommy a lot and if you can't help finacially please help by saying a prayer for me and share this page and spread the word to your friends.

Thank you so much.
Love, LuLu

I'm sure most of you know already but I was back in ER yesterday.

I had fluid in the pleural space, which is the space in the chest around the lungs. The most likely cause is the low protein levels in my blood secondary to my intestinal disease.
I was given oxygen for couple of hours and IV catheter was placed and I was sedated with Butorphanol. They removed 250 ml of fluid from my chest so I'm breathing much more comfortably now. I still have fluid in my tummy but she didn't remove them because it's very dangerous to remove it all at once.

I'm gonna be on Dexmethasone SP 0.2 ml once a day. I'm not sure how long I need to be on but hopefully it's just a temporary.

Doctor shaved both side of my chest to remove the fluid

One month ago on May 6th, I opened the "Help LuLu The Dachshund Diary Fund" and raised a total of $1910. I also received direct donations from our friend's Patricia, Federico, and my BFF Foxy and her mom Irene and dad Tim. As I promised, I'm going to donate $100 to the local rescue team, "Animal Hope And Wellness" and another $100 to Dachshund Rescue of Los Angeles. The reason I chose these two is because my nutritionist, Marc, is the owner of "Animal Hope And Wellness" and helps a lot of dogs just like me everyday and Dachshund Rescue of Los Angeles rescued my BFF Foxy. It may not be much but I hope it can help another sick or homeless puppy. Thanks for all of your love and support!
I'm going to deliver $100 donation today

I started new medication last night and suddenly I lost my appetite this morning. Mommy called doctor and he said if I don't get my appetite back by tomorrow then call him back. I could drink Honest Kitchen goat milk and it has good nutrition :) I guess I'm gonna have to stay home today. I hope I can get my appetite back soon.
I don't feel good today

Hi Lulu. Sammy here (in picture). My Mommy is retired and on a tight budget but she said we could send this much to help with your food or medication. I'm glad you are starting to feel better and finding a diet that works for you. We will continue to follow you on FB and maybe help again in future too.
