Remi became my pet after I was diagnosed with a Ductal Carcinoma in Situ in June of 2017. She’s my Emotional Support Animal and best friend. She has helped me through some pretty dark nights and day, and she’s really good at comforting me so I almost forget I even am battling for my life.
My husband says every time I leave and come back Remi is so excited to see me it’s like she’s my 50 First Dates dog. But really I’m just as excited to see her. So, it saddens my heart to see my poor girl in so much pain, and us in such a dilemma.
I was park in the CVS perception drive thru getting a prescription and Remi was in the back seat looking out the window. She moved a little to far over to see the CVS worker and slipped and fell. As she flipped her little ankle hit the metal bar that the car slides back and forth on to adjust the seat and it dislocated and fractured her ankle and foot bones.
I rushed her to the vet they x-rayed her but had concerns so they sent me to MSU Emergency Animal Clinic. That first vet bill was almost $200.00. At MSU they had to sadate her to do more x-rays and seen the bone needs surgery or she could end up having her leg amputated. That second vet bill cost me almost $500.00. And the surgery will be around $4,000.00, and that’s not including follow up Care.
They wrapped her leg and sent her home for the weekend for us to think about it and to weigh our options for Remi.
She’s only 3 years old. Still a pup at heart. She’s been taking such good care of me and now that it’s my turn to take care of her I don’t have the funds to do right by her.
To make matters worse I came home to find out they are canceling my health insurance but that’s a battle for another day. For now I am fighting for Remi. If you could give any amount we would greatly appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts. May God bless you a hundred fold.
Annette & Remi
