Help with Roco's Vet Bills!

Another Update: Roco is still undiagnosed, even though he tested positive for lyme disease & is being treated for it.  He has been nose bleed free since putting him on the medication - yay!  He had more blood work done today to test for other tick borne diseases.  He's doing a lot better, & is still full of life / acts the same as the first day Roxanne brought him home.  Good boy, Roco!  8-)

Roco tested positive for lyme disease, but the vets don't think it's related to his nose bleeds. They gave him antibiotics, & he's being treated for nasal mites just to be on the safe side. He's had a comfortable past couple of days at home with his mama, Roxanne is really grateful for them.

Update: Unfortunately, the test results from Saskatoon were inconclusive - they don't know what's wrong with poor Roco. Roxanne is in contact with other vets for advice/opinions.

Update: Roco had to have an emergency blood transfusion the other night, but he pulled through!  Still no test results yet from Saskatoon, hopefully tomorrow we'll know what's wrong.

My good friend Roxanne's beautiful dog Roco suddenly started having nose bleeds & has been undergoing many tests to find out the cause. Determined to save her baby, Roxanne is seeing the vet bills bills pile up. Roco is such a sweet & loving dog, everyone who meets him falls in love. Any amount that you can spare would be greatly appreciated!

Roxanne would like to add the option of her mailing address for those who don't feel comfortable using online payment/credit cards.  She is at:

Roxanne Persowich

502 - 113 Market Avenue, Wpg, MB, R3B 0P5

Thank you so much for helping!
