Sonoma's Emergency Medical Fund

In the past five days, Sonoma has been in two different emergency care facilities searching for the cause of her illness. They initially thought it was immune-mediated hemolytic anemia, or IMHA. They did extensive testing but couldn’t figure out why she kept dropping her red blood count.  They finally discovered that she has an ulcer that caused a stomach bleed at the second emergency care facility. 

During her stay at Yorba Regional Animal hospital we paid $5,000 for four days that included, X-Rays, ultrasounds, IV fluids, diagnostic testing, and blood transfusions. We transferred her to VCA West Coast on 4/7 and we paid $6,300 for  an ultrasound, IV fluids, medication, surgery, and 2 blood transfusions.  This amount will go up with the additional care she has received such as the scope and additional blood transfusions.  

We debated putting this page together since we don’t normally like to ask for help.  Unfortunately, money is a factor and we can’t continue putting her medical bills on our credit cards.  We have maxed out 2 cards, we have cancelled our trip in October to get our money back to be able to add to Sonoma’s fund.    

Sonoma is our furbaby, and there is nothing we wouldn’t do for her. We appreciate and are grateful for any support.

Thank you, 
Olga and Laurel
