The Bear Family Illnesses, Meds & Vet Bills

We have 3 beautiful Westies, the Bear Family as we call them, Snowy (14.5 years), Baby Bear (13.4) and Kisses (12.5) their daughter, born and raises with them and us since day 1.

Kisses was diagnosed in September 2016 who requires a monthly injection and vet check every month for her life and Prednisone medication every day to support her cortisol levels
Later she was diagnosed in Oct 2018 with Diabetes 1, she now needs an insulin injection twice a day and some routine blood work for every 3 months for her glucose and fructose for both sickness, which makes it harder.
Because she needs Prednisone daily, it triggered off Diabetes, which makes it a more complicated case and needs close monitoring by the vet.
She is also on subscription dog food specially made for diabetic dogs (Purina EN Gastro-enteric).

Baby Bear was diagnosed with liver decease in November 2016, later he developed tumors in his liver which created enlarged liver.
He was also diagnosed with Cushing Disease with a brain tumor.
Because his tumors in his liver are malignant, he requires ultrasounds periodically and liver profiles to determine where he is at.
February 2019, the last ultra-sound showed and confirmed that his tumors have grown massively and no other treatments are possible and he only has 2 weeks to live.. in other words, they give up on him but we did NOT and he is still fighting and eating like a chief.
We found other holistic alternatives medicines that we order online each month for his treatments and we are so far on week 15 since his last ultra-sound.
His Cushing decease brought soars on his back and is under antibiotic and special medicated shampoo.

Snowy was just diagnosed in May with early-stage heart failure and is taking heart med to strengthen her heart along with OPIOID medicament to help her combat the fluid in her lung on a daily basis or as needed.

Our Pups are our lives and we just want to make them happy and comfortable as possible f0r the remaining of the time we have with them.
it has been quite a journey, but we would be so grateful for any help that we could receive, anything would be highly appreciated to help them and us. We know that we cannot extend their lives for years but at least we are fighting to give them the best as we can.

It has been so stressful for us and we are trying to find help for them... anything helps.

God Bless You
