Erin and Pippin's Medical Fund

My friend, Erin, and her dog, Pippin, are currently in Columbia at the University of Missouri's Veterinary Hospital for diagnostics and testing.  Pippin is a handsome, one year-old German Shepheard and has gradually become very sick over the last few weeks. We still do not know why, or how. He has had vomiting, diarrhea, severe weight loss, and and has been very lethargic. The vet ran bloodwork today to find that his liver and kidney values are very elevated and his calcium level is very high (all of which is very scary).  Because of the severity of this, Pippin needs immediate hospitalization and IV fluids. In order to be aggressive with diagnostics, the next step was to take him up to the University where they have specializied equipment and doctors to figure out what is wrong with him. At this point, he needs further tests, such as an ultrasound, and possibly a CT scan. This is very expensive, and, in addition to the days of continued hospitalization he will need, the charges will add up quickly. Please, help us provied the funds to pay for Pippin's testing and treatment. He's the sweetest pup and he is a special member of our family.
