Help Buddy Walk Again

52143624_1603691515748126_r.jpegThis is buddy.

Buddy is my emotional support pupper. I rescued Buddy from a shelter in 2017 during my husbands first deployment, after just moving to a brand new place over 1,000 miles from all my family and friends. Buddy has been my best friend, my rock and companion through some of the toughest parts of my life, the diagnoses and continuing treatment of severe lifelong anxiety and depression.

Buddy hasn’t been feeling his best the past month, he struggles to walk more than a few feet from his bed, he trembles, shakes and falls after a few moments on his feet. His legs are becoming bowed and he walks cross legged. Buddy was preliminarily diagnosed with a thinning spine and needs extensive medical tests (MRIs, CT scans, and a spinal tap) but we can’t afford the treatment to figure out why he’s suffering. It breaks my heart I can’t give him the treatment he deserves, and feels unfair he’s done so much to help me heal and I’m unable to do the same for him.

The only facility in our area that has the equipment to do these tests is the emergency pet clinic, and the prices are incredibly high. We’re asking for your help to give Buddy his life back, and turn the glimmer of hope in his sweet face into a reality of feeling like his old self again. Every cent of donations will go directly to the emergency pet clinic for his tests and treatments.
