Help us save Chichi

A chichi lo rescatamos hace 6 años en las calles de Caracas, Venezuela, siendo ya un perro adulto, se encontraba en una condición deplorable, con mucho amor hicimos que se recuperara. Se convirtió en parte de nuestra familia, hace 3 años lo trajimos a Miami con nosotros.

El último año ha sido muy difícil en términos económicos  para nosotros como familia, tuvimos un bebé y Nala (nuestra otra perrita) fue diagnosticada con una masa en su abdomen justo antes que naciera nuestro bebé, Nala fue operada pero todo se fue complicando en su condición, a lo largo de este año han tenido que realizarle 3 intervenciones adicionales, han sido muchos exámenes y medicamentos, hemos pagado más de 8000 dólares para que mejore, dinero que aún ni siquiera hemos terminado de pagar, tuvimos que pedir créditos para poder costearlo en su momento. Desde hace 2 meses Chichi ha estado sufriendo de tos, una desmejora progresiva en su habilidad para respirar y ha bajado mucho de peso, estuvimos 2 veces en el veterinario con el, le hicieron distintos exámenes sin encontrar un diagnóstico, entre esas dos visitas tuvimos que pagar alrededor de $1200, le enviaron un tratamiento que no lo hizo mejorar en nada así que hoy volvimos al veterinario. Pero no contábamos con el pronóstico del que nos hablaron, nos dijeron que tiene todo su abdomen lleno de líquido que parece provenir de una falla cardíaca, esta muy débil, nos dicen que su estado es crítico y deben dejarlo hospitalizado el día de hoy 5 de noviembre 2020, la cuenta ya va en $2000 y los veterinarios nos explican que seguirán haciendo pruebas para saber cual es el mejor tratamiento o procedimiento a seguir, pero que la verdad es que cualquiera que sea ese tratamiento será bastante costoso, pues pudiera incluir visitas semanales al veterinario y hasta cirugías periódicas para drenar el líquido de su cuerpo. Nos han propuesto dormirlo pero creemos que no es justo hacerlo si realmente existe una forma sacarlo de este estado crítico y darle un poco más de tiempo con nosotros. Esos $2000 que tenemos que pagar hoy, no los tenemos y tampoco tenemos el dinero para pagar los siguientes pasos de su tratamiento, realizar esta campaña con la esperanza de recaudarlo es la única esperanza que tenemos para poder ayudarlo a salir de esta. Chichi es un perro increíble, nos ha enseñado tanto. Por favor, ayúdanos a salvarlo, cada dólar cuenta, y esta familia te lo agradecerá por siempre. 


ENGLISH 

We rescued chichi 6 years ago in the streets of Caracas, Venezuela, being an adult dog, he was in a deplorable condition, with much love we made him recover. He became part of our family, 3 years ago we brought him to Miami with us.

The last year has been very difficult in economic terms for us as a family, we had a baby and Nala (our other dog) was diagnosed with a mass in her abdomen just before our baby was born, Nala was operated on but everything got complicated in her condition, throughout this year they have had to perform 3 additional interventions, there have been many examinations and medications, we have paid more than 8000 dollars to improve, money that we have not even finished paying, we had to ask for credits to pay for it at the time. For 2 months, Chichi has been suffering from a cough, a progressive deterioration in his ability to breathe and he has lost a lot of weight, we were at the vet twice with him, they did different tests without finding a diagnosis, between those two visits we had to paying around $ 1200, they sent him a treatment that didn't make him improve at all so today we went back to the vet. But we did not have the prognosis they told us about, they told us that his entire abdomen is full of fluid that seems to come from heart failure, he is very weak, they tell us that his condition is critical and they must leave him hospitalized today, 5 November 2020, the bill is already at $ 2000 and the veterinarians explain to us that they will continue to do tests to find out which is the best treatment or procedure to follow but that the truth is that whatever that treatment is, it will be quite expensive, as it could include weekly visits to the vet and even regular surgeries to drain fluid from his body. They have proposed to put him to sleep but we believe that it is not fair to do so if there really is a way to get him out of this critical state and give him a little more time with us. Those $ 2000 that we have to pay today, we do not have it and we do not have the money to pay for the next steps of your treatment, running this campaign in the hope of raising it is the only hope we have to help you get out of this. Chichi is an amazing dog, he has taught us so much. Please help us save him, every dollar counts, and this family will thank you forever.
