For those of you who know me, you also know my dog Eos. She is sweet, gentle, and all around a perfect angel. Everyone that knows her loves her, and truthfully I think they like her more than me (lol). I mostly refuse to go anywhere she can't go with and try to give her the best life I can which so far has been quite the adventure for us both. She loves to hike, splash in water, sit on small children, and sit and stare at me for hours. She is a sucker for a man with a beard and loves to smell morning breath.
Yesterday I came home and found her in quite a bit of pain. After a trip to the ER it was determined that she was suffering from gastric dialation. After keeping her at the ER overnight and performing multiple radiographs her condition has only slighty improved. This morning I took her from the ER to Airpark Animal Hospital where she is currently being treated with IV fluids and Gas-X. This is our last chance to get things to clear before the only option is surgery. Her surgery was estimated to be $2,500- $3,500 plus the additional cost of aftercare at the ER for overnight monitoring. Simply put, I dont have it.
Currently her status is GD (+/-) V which means her stomach could twist at any moment. If surgery is her only option and they believe that she will survive and live a normal life than I want to be able to give her that option. However, I also value her quality of life over everything and if she will be in pain, is considered high risk for the surgery, or her general quality of life will make a drastic change for the worse than I fear I will have to say goodbye to my sweet angel.
What I am asking is for any help possible to give Eos the fighting chance that she deserves. If she pulls through and does not need the surgery, any funds rasied in excess will be donated to The Buddy Fountation of Maryland which is an organization that helps familes such as Eos and I with medical bills they cannot afford. It allows familes the option to save their pet rather than euthanize them because of finacial struggles.
Any and all help is appreciated, even if it is just prayers and positive energy.
All our love,
Tiffany and Eos
