Ny name is Jax and I am the proud owner of a beautiful 2 year old Weimeraner Rambo. I am writing this to ask for any little bit of help you can provide to help me bring my little angel home♥️
Rambo is only 2 years old, she is the most beautiful, gorgeous little soul in the world and loves nothing more than her big brother Rocky, running riot at grandma and granddads and getting all warm and cosy at home whilst licking everyone’s face. She deserves so much more of a life than what is happening to her.
1 week ago on Friday 20th January she began vomiting throughout the night over 30 times and by Saturday morning we were in the emergency vets. She had gone into Hypovolemic shock, this is an emergency condition in which severe blood or other fluid loss makes the heart unable to pump enough blood to the body. This type of shock can cause many organs to stop working.
Due to this as well as contracting gastroenteritis (blood in vomiting & diarrhea) Rambo deteriorated quickly and became seriously unwell. Throughout the week Rambo began to vomit and instead of coming out her mouth this fluid was going back down and into her lungs which has resulted in her gaining infection within her lungs, fluid surrounding the area and is now suffering with severe pneumonia and one lung has collapsed.
In the vets words, Rambo could not have been any more unlucky with what has happened. The initial cause is still unknown but the position Rambo is in now has resulted in her being in intensive care under 24/7 observation.
The vets are now continuously attempting to drain Rambo’s lung and monitoring the infection within her lungs whilst assessing the level of bacteria in the fluid which is being drained out. Due to all of the medication she is now on rambo is still vomiting and hasn’t eaten any food herself for a week.
The worry is that there is now a possibility an abscess has formed on Rambo’s lung which would require major surgery to remove. Vets cannot assess whether this is the case or not for a few days whilst Rambo hopefully begins to respond to treatment. However if it is, which is my biggest fear, the risk to rambos life is significant. I could never forgive myself if I couldn’t give her the best fighting chance to pull through this horrendous situation.
Rambo’s insurance has covered her up to £6500. Her bill is now up to £11,500 after 1 week in care. It is unknown how long Rambo will need to stay at the vets and intensive care costs is approximately £1000 per day. If the worst happens and Rambo requires major surgery, the cost of this as well as the aftercare is something I need to be able to give my little baby girl.
I am broken watching this gorgeous little soul go through something so horrendous. Anything you can spare will make such a difference.
Thank you so much for reading ♥️
