Douggy's Medical Fund

We adopted Doug two years ago from the Woods Humane Society and he's been the best dog anyone could ask for. He is a four year old terrier mix with a big personality and a heart full of love. Doug is our best friend and we couldn't imagine the last two years without him. As of a year ago, he's had chronic inflammation of the intestines and yelps in pain almost constantly. After visiting our local vet weekly for the past nine months, we still have yet to find a solution and alleviate Doug's discomfort. We've tried many different medicines, treatments, and restrictive diets but nothing seemed to solve the problem.

On November 11th, 2017, we found Doug in extreme pain and somewhat unresponsive. We traveled to Santa Barbara to an animal specialist hospital where they discovered a GI infection that left Doug hours away from his colon rupturing. Doug was given fluids, antibiotics, and other pain medication which luckily, after a week of hospitalization, stabilized him. However, in order to fully resolve the problem, Doug needs a biopsy along with other treatments and hospitalization which is beyond our capacity to afford as college students. He is currently being hospitalized until they can fit him in for a biopsy later this week. Doug is absolutely loved in his community and we are trying to provide him with everything he needs to recover. It breaks out hearts to leave him alone in the hospital constantly but hopefully with your help we can get him out and back to his normal life of the loving and playful pup he is. Any donation is extremely appreciated, and we thank you endlessly for your time and support helping Doug.
