This is Dosha a small little pup who is the heart of our family. She is currently fighting for her life from being poisoned. We don’t know how or why rat poison ended up in our yard but its killing our little girl. We have never used rat poison as it is cruel and inhumane. Her condition is so bad that she has been transferred to the University of Guelph OVC Small Animal Clinic, Intensive Care Unit. On the night of the 22nd everything changed, and we knew something was horribly wrong with Dosha. She began bleeding from her gums, eyes, bum and was covered in horrible bruises. We rushed her to vet and prayed they could do something. The vet was amazing and rushed in regardless of how late it was. Tests were run, and the vet said she was suffering from rodenticide poisoning. He said she needed immediate treatment to survive. She was put on a ton of medications to try and bring her platelets up and stop the bleeding. The vet said she would need constant monitoring, medication and shots every twelve hours to get through this. She was so scared with everything going on. The poor little thing was bleeding from everywhere, strangers were shaving her, sticking her with needles and constantly poking her. I felt so helpless not being able to do anything to help her or take away her pain. We left hopeful that she was getting better. By morning she was still bleeding, and her bruises had gotten worse. The vet had to run more tests and increase her medications. We were hopeful that the next set of tests would show she was improving but by the next day she was worse than ever. 2/3 of her little body were covered in raised purple/red bruises and she whimpered every time she was touched.
The vet said she was critical and needed a blood transfusion asap. We had to transfer her to the Guelph University, OVC Small Animal Clinic where she could get the care she needed. Today has been so incredibly hard knowing that my little girl in fighting for her life. The Vet bills have been horrendous and have already reached 5K and are expected to be at least another 2K. We don’t have much money and are already on a budget. We are so grateful for any help anyone can offer. Thank you for all your kindness. Its people like you that restore my faith in this world. We love her so very much and just want her to be ok. God bless
