Shine needs your help!

48670238_1591657971262478_r.jpegHey everyone! Nice to meet you  I am Shine the Maltepoo. 
My mom went to let me out today after she got home from work and I couldn't walk at all, you see, I was previously diagnosed with Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD), Big word for a dog! IVDD means that  I have a herniated or ruptured disc in my spine that is leaking its contents which causes severe inflation and pain in my lower back that prevent me from walking or running.
My mom has taken me to the vet twice where they gave me Prednisone and pain medication. Still I am  getting worse. 

I need to be evaluated by the vet again as soon as possible. A consultation will cost mom $106,  x-rays $200, a consultation with a neurologist $200 medicine $65 for  medications, and $3,000 for a possible MRI. This doesn't include any other medicines, treatments and surgery that may be needed depending on the severity of my issues. 

My care is very expensive, I have other 2 siblings Sailor and Saidi and is gotten difficult for mom to afford all this but I know my family loves me  a lot and I love them. Mom says things are hard out there with everything going on in the world, but could you consider helping me feel better?   If there's anything you can contribute to my care we would really appreciate it!

Shine and Mom
