Hi, we are Nick and Sabrina. Our 4 year old Portuguese Water Dog has just been diagnosed with Addison's Disease. This is not a curable ailment, but it is one with treatments. With very specific medications and dosages Cosmo can lead a full life without any declines in quality of life as long as he's a good boy and the medication is proper. Until then he's not out of the woods just yet.
A few days ago he had what is called a Crisis. His kidney functions were almost to the point of kidney failure and he stopped eating and drinking. We were fortunate enough to have a vet who ran a whole bunch of tests and realized we needed an ER. They took him in for several days, started him on fluids, and suspected the same culprit as our Vet. They begin a steroid injection and other treatments.
Cosmo is now home and in recovery. But, in order to save our poor Cosmo and come up with the best treatments we are in need of help financially! Help us save our puppy as we've taken a huge hit and we don't know how many more we can take.
