What is happening.
Hello to those who are interested in learning more about helping our loving almost one year old boy Spot.
Almost two weeks ago we noticed Spots breathing had become quite heavy and he was very low energy compared to his normal crazy boy self. He was brought to our local vet who ran some regular tests and blood work. It was determined at the time based on his condition it was kennel cough and proper medication and treatment was initiated from that day moving forward. After a couple of days we noticed that nothing had really changed and his breathing was getting worse. After spending countless hours in the vet hospital this week being hit with a number of vet bills. They were able to determine that this is not Kennel Cough but rather Bronchopneumonia.
Fast forward to yesterday evening at the vet hospital, Bronchopneumonia has now been ruled out. And they have said it is "something else" but they have not been able to determine a root cause to what is happening with his respiratory tract.
They are wanting Spot to get an endoscopy done so they can really see what is going on inside of him, as they explained xrays will not be sufficient enough to determine what is happening.
What we are wishing for.
The cost for this procedure, anesthesia and other medical needs is $8000 and additional costs are likely to appear after this procedure is complete.
The vets are wanting this procedure done as soon as possible, meaning the funding for this would have to be complete relatively quick. As each day goes by his breathing becomes harder and his body is becoming weaker. We are doing what we can to afford this on our own, but realistically at the moment we are nowhere near the mark we need to afford this without support.
We have looked into pet insurance and vet financing, however the turnaround time to have something sorted out does not align with the urgency of this situation.
We understand in these trying times not everything is possible. We are here asking for help as we don't have many time sensitive options available.
Thank you for reading this and considering helping us save Spot.
