This is my best friend, Peabrain. I’ve had him and his sister since they were 5 weeks old when I rescued their litter from a bad situation. I had only planned on keeping his sister Dora at first but when Peebs wouldn’t leave my side while his siblings would run off to play, I realized he was a mama’s boy and I knew we had to stay together. So I adopted two dogs! Then later we foster failured George but that’s a whole other story.
Now, almost 12 years later, Peabrain has been diagnosed with a tumor in his bladder which Is inoperable. He has no symptoms currently except blood in his urine but as the tumor grows bigger it is going to affect his ability to pee, and that’s when things will get ugly. He is currently taking some anti inflammatory meds which is supposed to slow the tumor growth and we have an appointment with the oncology department at UC Davis in a couple of weeks. We are also looking into some natural remedies that have been shown to help. We will know more soon.
My campaign is to raise money for Peabrain’s vet bills. It has already cost us $566 at our local vet to diagnose what was wrong, then $1,500 for our first visit to UC Davis Veterinary School plus whatever we've spent on meds. Chemo is going to be about $700 a month plus travel expenses. I am committed to doing what’s best for my best friend, and as long as he is happy and feeling good I will do everything I can for him. I’m not asking for handouts, however. I have a nicely sized inventory of artwork that I am offering in exchange for a donation to our cause. I am offering the following:
