Sammy's Medical Bills

After a year and a half of misdiagnosis and countless vet bills, Sammy' s care has been referred to Neurology. 

His condition has deteriorated especially this last month and it has become extremely difficult and devastating to watch him suffer in pain. Our lives have completely changed with him being unable to get around. I carry him mostly where ever he needs to go now. All of our hikes and adventures have been set aside. I currently have tried everything to manage his pain and it's now time for more action.

I would love to be able to get an MRI for him to further determine his care and prognosis and take the next best steps. They are thinking he could have some herniated discs, or other back complications. Unfortunately MRI being at around $2100 and surgery goes up exponentially from there. He is only 7. 

Everyone that knows Sammy & I know how tight our bond is, and I just couldn't imagine doing this life without him. 

I would also like to thank my Denver girlfriends Katie and Kelsey for setting this up. This has been extremely tough,  and I am learning that maybe it is okay to ask for help when you need it.

Best,
Taylor
