Hello, my name is Sam. Today, we had to bring Chiwi to the vet because she wasn't eating much. They had to get x-rays done on her to see what was going on with her stomach. From the x-rays, the veterinarian said there was some foreign object in her stomach and it was blocking up all the food she had eaten. She also was very constipated, so everything was basically stuck in her tiny body. They had no choice but to do surgery on her in order to remove everything that was causing her problems.
Because of the pandemic, my family has no form of income, as my parents both lost their jobs. The cost of the whole procedure is estimated to be $2400, which can be paid over the course of a couple months, but interest will be put on it if we cannot pay it fully within 6 months. I don't want my family to have to go through anymore stress during these times. All of the funds we raise will be used to pay for Chiwi's procedure, as well as any extra fees that come with the surgery. We all care so much about Chiwi, as she is a huge part of our family. It would mean the world to us if we could get any kind of help during these stressful times, and I want to thank everyone who is reading this right now.
I know Chiwi would be very happy too. Thank you.
