FIGHTING FOR TYSON

Hi everyone, my name is Tyson.  I am a English Bulldog who loves to play with toys, eat anything in my path, and sleep on the bed.  I just turned 8 months old and as loving as my life has been, I have had some tough times.  I just found out that I really need a surgery but it is really expensive.  Last week, my family noticed that I walk funny so they took me to the vet.  We saw Dr. Park at Animal Care Center of Chicago.  She was so nice and concerned and recommended that I see a specialist.  After a lot of tests, we found out that my bones are growing more than they should and are compressing my spinal chord.  This congenital spinal and vertebral malformation causes me to trip over my hind legs a lot and have a hard time getting up.  We visited Dr. Hasse at Care Animal Hopsital in Arlington Heights for another opinion and he explained everything so amazingly to my family.  He took the time to go over all the details without rushing even though it was a busy day! My mommy and daddy will do everything to give me the best life possible.  Please help them to help me!  I have already had two surgeries to fix a cherry eye in both eyes, drain an infected abscess, and get neutered.  Even though the recovery process was hard, I recovered like a champ!  My parents have already spent $2,000 for the tests to find out what is wrong with my legs.  After the surgery and physical therapy, they will spend another $5,000.  Please donate any amount that you can so I can run and jump with my brother, Wally!
