I've had Laurelai since she was six weeks old--rescued from a backyard breeder. I've cared for her through mange, a spinal cord surgery, two ACL repairs (those three surgeries were all in one year), a tooth extraction, cyst removal and now: a mast cell tumor.
I have pet insurance, I've fed her top quality food her entire life, given antioxidant supplements and basically taken every precaution I could have to preserve her health.
Unfortunately, it hasn't been enough. I can't do this on my own anymore. I'm still paying off the huge expenses from the surgeries listed above, even with pet insurance.
I have never asked for help, but now I must. This is the breaking point--I have no more money for this dog's constant issues. I've spent it just getting the mass diagnosed and removed, but the biopsy returned a grade II, which is moderate metastatic potential. Mast cell tumors are very aggressive and she needs radiation. Treatments are every day for 18 days with weekends off.
Laurelai is only 8; pit bulls can live up to 16 years. She is full of energy and life, she has done so much to change breed perceptions, and she is such a good girl. I want to do whatever I can to ensure her next 8 years are happy and active, and hopefully allow her to keep all four legs.
Any help we can get would be greatly appreciated.
Angry red incision- 6 days post-op, lump already returning.
