Help With Shih Tzu dog ICU Hospital Bill

$2,950 of $5,069 goal

Raised by 36 people in 5 months
My 5lb Shih Tzu who is almost 15 years old on Friday, was making some strange sound so I rushed her that evening to the animal emergency hospital in Rockledge. She wound up needing CPR during xrays to bring her back to life and then again shortly after. I got this dog there right on the nick of time! They diagnosed her with heart failure and later pulmonary hypertension. As of today Monday the March 11th she is still there.

She's been on oxygen, which she was finally taken off of sometime in the middle of the night.  They have done blood work a few times because her kidney levels were as high as 127, which is dangerous for a tiny dog. It has dropped a tiny bit with medication, but not enough yet.

The bills are huge being at an emergency hospital. I am a former teacher. Most people know that teachers don't make much. I am currently trying to find another full time job. So I am really having a hard time coming up with the vet bills and future medicine to keep her alive. I've had her since she was a puppy.

I hope to take her home tomorrow. If not, the bill will go up even more, but I want her to be fine before coming  home so I don't have to rush her back there.

I would appreciate any money that you can donate to help with her medical expenses from the hospital and medicine.  If you can't donate please share this as each share helps a ton as well!

See the updates for the actual vet bills!

Thank you so much,

Brian

I haven't posted an update in a little while. My sweet dog continues to do well other than diarrhea at times. Please continue to pray for her. She's going to need another haircut as hair is getting in her face and she's definitely got stickers near her eyes again.

Thank you for helping me reach 1,200 shares! Let's reach 1,300 shares by the end of the month! Can you help me do it? Donate if you can even if it is just a dollar. Every little bit helps. Otherwise, please share and keep praying for her.

Thank you,

Been awhile since I've posted an update. All is well with my sweet dog. She's made it 4 1/2 months now since all of this started. She was given a month to live. I am so blessed she showed that vet that told me that, that God is the one who determines how long she lives! Thank you for your prayers. Keep them coming, please!

We reached 1,100 shares! Let's keep working toward 1,200 shares. Let's get there by the end of the month!!! Thanks to the donor for $50! Donate if you can any amount helps, share, and pray!

Thank you,

Just a little laughter for you today. Well it wasn't funny at the time, but I can laugh about it now! My sweet dog was sitting on my lap and I smelled something. I thought she just have farted, but the smell didn't seem to go away. I moved her a little bit and she had pooped on me. By that time it was smashed all over my jeans and on her as well. That has never happened to me with any dog in my entire life!

Poor dog wound up having to take a bath, which she hates. No worries I took a shower myself and my jeans are washed with no stains!

I received another donation that I'm very thankful for 4 days ago. Please donate if you can, even if it is only a dollar! If not please keep sharing as I try to hit 2,000 shares! Keep praying for my beautiful dog as well.

Thank you,

Thank you so much for helping me reach 1,000 shares!!! I guess it doesn't give me the exact number once I hit 1,000 so keep sharing and help me get to 2,000 please!

In Snuggles news, I took her to get her distemper shot today. She wasn't thrilled with me, but she was a good dog and didn't bite anyone! Next week, she'll get a check up at the animal emergency hospital in Rockledge.

Keep praying for my sweet dog! Share and donate if you can afford to do so. Thank you to each of you who already have! You are AMAZING!
