Gypsy's Vet Bills

As a lot of you know, Nate and I adopted Gypsy this past Saturday, June 25th. She was immediately coughing and throwing up, but otherwise was very playful and in good spirits. I brought her to the vet first thing Monday morning and they diagnosed her with "kennel cough gone bad, turned into pneumonia". They gave us some antibiotics to give with food, but she hadn't eaten in over 24 hours. Then she hadn't eaten in almost 48 hours, was throwing up and severely coughing. We feared for her life and immediately brought her to Tufts animal hospital at 3:30am Tuesday morning where she tested positive for Parvo which is an often fatal, but not always, virus in dogs.

It is now Wednesday, and she still hasn't eaten, is vomitting again, and has bloody stools. They have put a feeding tube in, but it seems she has gotten worse overnight. They are optimistic, as we are trying to be, but we don't know what the outcome will be and it could turn even worse at any moment. Her medical bills are already around $3,000 and she is not anywhere near being healthy enough to come home and the rescue we got her from cannot help us with the bills.

We may have only had her for 3 days, but we are so in love with her. She is 11 weeks old and already plays fetch and brings it back, she goes to the door when she has to go to the bathroom, she comes when she's called and already walks without a leash and stays with us at all times. She is one of the sweetest animals I have ever known. We have never been so heartbroken.

Nate and I would normally never ask anyone, even family, to help us financially. But we are so desperate. Gypsy is just a baby and we are all she has, and anyone who knows me knows that I love animals more than anything in the world and would do anything for them. I don't care if it is just a dollar, if there is any way that anyone could help us, please do so. We will be forever grateful.
