Chelsea’s Medical Bills & Rehab

My dog Chelsea herniated a disc in her lower back in mid-August within a 24 hour period of time. At the time of her surgery, she was given a 60% chance of regaining mobility in her back legs. She’s come such a long way doing exercises at home, but requires quite a bit of physical therapy including laser therapy, acupuncture, and underwater treadmill therapy multiple times a week.

As you can imagine, just the cost of the surgery was beyond what I could afford, but I’m buckling down in order to pay for the surgery and ER bills that we’ve accumulated and will continue to do so.  Any financial assistance that could be provided to help me pay for her physical therapy would mean the world to me and to her. We are looking at about $1500 for her first round of physical therapy in hopes that she will begin to regain her muscle mass and ability to walk. Her therapy begins this week!

With love to all who consider donating...we appreciate your support! Chelsea had a difficult journey prior to us adopting her from MWDR, but she has found her forever home and is loved beyond belief by her mom and sister, Maddy! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
