Please Help Andy, My Sick Rescue Pup

I’m Mary Ellen, Andy’s Mom. A lot of you know me as mef48 on Instagram. Andy was diagnosed over a year ago with end stage Lymes. He has renal failure which requires an IV every morning and night to flush the toxins from his kidneys. The night IV is new. His heart, and other organs and senses are affected, and as a result he has been blind since May, but still acts like he is protecting me, and would try his hardest to. He now requires 6 medications every morning to keep him as healthy as possible and help him to have an appetite. He is a loyal and loving little guy with the sweetest personality, and I adore him. He does tire very quickly now, and sleeps too much. He is doing very well with the loss of his sight. He’s still happy, and loves to go for walks and car rides. Unfortunately, I am retired and on a fixed income, and have gone under water providing his care. I can no longer afford it, but he is so worth it that I have to ask for your help. His necessities are very expensive, and include his daily IV which costs $28 every 9 days. His medications are close to $100 a month. He will only eat Bravo Raw Beef Patties which cost $33 every 6 days. I tried everything else before I discovered them, and have thrown away or given away an enormous amount of food he would not eat. I’m still in the hole from his $2,500 hospital stay and his numerous Vet visits. His last was a week and a half ago for $504. The unexpected Vet visit was $250 last month for a check up and blood tests which came back showing an improvement in his kidney values, but not good on Creatine levels. I stopped taking him to the Vet hospital because it was over $400 a visit every month. I have spent thousands of dollars taking care of him, and will keep doing it as long as he needs me to. Even if it’s just $5.00, every penny would go towards his care, and would be immensely appreciated. Please help me keep my baby as healthy as possible. I love him so very much, and neither one of us are ready to say goodbye. He is my world ♥️
