This is Pumpkin a beautiful loving boy. Pumpkin is more human than you can imagine.
He actually understands everything YOU want or need. He gives with such unconditional love.
Unfortunately, at 2.5 years old, Pumpkin picked up a virus that was killing him. Pumpkin had a 105.5-106.0 fever, was totally paralyzed, could not eat for over a week and supported feeding was impossible. He was not even able to walk to his litter pan.
Pumpkin was on his deathbed.
The wonderful staff and vets at All Creatures in Pomona, are outstanding, but gave us the news this past month, that they have gone as far as they could go. They were and are incredible. To this day, All Creatures and Smith Ridge Veterinary Center are our Vets of choice and will be forever for all our animals, dogs and cats.
What we found in the extraordinary Smith Ridge Veterinary Center was at first a holistic integrative approach for animals that while expensive, made so much sense. And then, while we wanted this type of treatment, how could we afford $400 dollar per day, 3x per week treatments, and we asked ourselves, why would anyone--our answer was because it's Pumpkin.
If you boost the animals' immune system with an IV C drip that is infused with minerals and vitamins, this will support the animal, and he or she will be able to strengthen and as is the case with Pumpkin, great hope for survival. But it does cost a lot.
No other veterinarian near us provides this type of alternative and proven(our dog Emma is living proof of the IVC drip) treatment. Someday, we are hoping Smith Ridge Techniques are everywhere throughout the country and the world.
Within 3 days Pumpkin no longer had a fever, was walking and playing and once again, became a 2.5 year old beautiful boy again.
What will your gift to Pumpkin mean?
Unfortunately, the medical costs for Pumpkin, are $1200 per treatments.
Right now, he needs 6 treatments. Each treatment lasts 2 weeks. As he gets stronger, he will be able to go from monthly, to every 2 months. So, he will need less and less treatment as he continues to get healthier.
Pumpkin deserves to live. The good news is that there is HOPE. Please help us so Pumpkin can survive this horribly sad virus. We have already lost two other cats to this contagious virus, which is not harmful to humans or dogs.
Thank you so much for your gift of compassion and financial support to save Pumpkin .
