Hi! My name is Frankie and Rich Garner is my Dad. I am a 7 year old dachshund that had been experiencing very painful back issues. I scheduled an MRI to determine why I had been in so much pain. The doctor told me I needed back surgery immediately to repair two ruptured discs. If I didn't have the surgery, I could have become paralyzed. That would be horrible because my people have become very dependent upon me for my wonderful company and snuggly nature.
The surgery was expensive, so I'm asking for your help. We were expecting the MRI expense and had saved up a little money. When the vet bill ballooned to over $7,000 after the surgery, we almost needed a cardiologist! Any financial assistance you could give would add up fast and be appreciated. I am still relatively young for my breed and did very well during surgery. Thanks to my surgeon, Dr. Hanson, technological advances and loved ones, my outlook is great for a bright and pain free future.
