Bowser the corgi is a huge part of our family. He brings so much love and joy to us and we love him more than anything.He has been very sick since October 2013. It all started after Bowser needed to have surgery to remove a tooth because it had caused a huge swollen abscess on his face. After a successful surgery of removing his tooth, a few days later he began to sneeze uncontrollably with endless amounts of discolored snot. After immediately seeing the vet, and getting antibiotics for his nose discharge, it continued to get worse.
We have spent $2,500 since October on multiple kinds of tests and many different medications. We have been diligent in seeing the vet, and following their instructions on medicine and treatment for Bowser. We have gone to two different vets to try all possible procedures to help get Bowser better because there is no clear answer to what is causing him to be sick. The normal vet has done everything within their power and the next step is nasal surgery from a Veterinary Surgical Specialist.
The past two months have been very miserable for Bowser. His nose constantly runs, with discharge and blood, and impedes on his sleep. He has been very lethargic and his nose/mouth area are raw from being constantly wet and is so sensitive it is hard for him to eat.
Today we got the estimate for the next step to try to help cure Bowser. His surgery is scheduled for Tuesday 2-18-14 and will cost $1,459 and there is a chance that it won't be successful and will lead into needing to get an MRI to get more answers.
So after Tuesday the total amount of money spent comes to $3,959 to help cure Bowser. We are hoping this cures him, but there could be a chance he will need even more medical attention.
We are hoping for any help to make our sweet boy get better. Any small amount would help. This has put our small family under extreme financial hardship. We have gone thousands of dollars in debt and continue to do everything we can to help him. I am a full time student, and work as much as possible, my husband works full time, so we are doing everything we can to help save Bowser while also paying to keep the roof over our heads.
We thank you all so much for taking your time to hear about Bowser and are very thankful for any donation.
If you live in Southern California Bowser would love to meet you and thank you at the dog park once he gets better!
