The Pug Sid Vicious’ Medical Fund! Save the puggo!

42978140_1572158198460883_r.jpegThe story to what happened with my boy (the smallest pug in Cincinnati):

After car repairs. After a hellacious trip to NYC. Getting my account drained from Air BnB’s mess up along with paying for the hotels, lyft, etc accrued thanks to Air BnB... I drive to Kentucky to pick up my dog, Sid, and he’s acting very strange and lethargic when he is normally off the walls with energy. He is only a 2 and a half year old pug. He was abused in an Amish puppy mill the first 8 months of his life which led to finding out a year ago that he had renal failure but was manageable with his prescription food diet which I pay for each month. He doesn’t get any treats or anything. He can only have that. And tonight, after several hours of him not being himself and acting dizzy and moaning, I drove to Lexington to a 24 hour emergency vet hospital (Bluegrass Veterinary Specialists + Animal Emergency). They said his kidney values are “so high that they’re off the charts”. His only option at life is to stay hospitalized for 48 hours on IV fluids and antibiotics to attempt to flush out the toxins and rid him of any infections on top of it. Had I not brought him tonight, he likely wouldn’t have made it. He likely got into food he wasn’t supposed to have while being watched. It was an accident. No one is at fault but I NEVER expected that news tonight. I’m beyond stressed and broken hearted to watch them take him back. He watched me over the tech’s shoulder the whole way back. It was absolutely awful. I opened a line of credit to pay for it. It’s a minimum of $1400. Put down $1000 tonight. I have to pay about $666 dollars by November to keep it at 0% interest (then it goes to 29%apr) but I doubt the likelihood of that happening with rent, etc. I do plan to create a Fundraiser for the smallest pug in Cincinnati, Mr. Sid Vicious. There is the possibility he may need work done, potential procedures, etc. We don’t know the extent of the damage on the kidneys or how it will effect him long term but if his levels can manage to go back to where they were before, he could continue his potential 8-10 year life expectancy. If for some reason, god forbid, he doesn’t respond to it. It’ll be a matter of time and keeping him comfortable but we aren’t thinking like that. Regardless, I just went full time with my photography and have been working bar gigs on the side so I’m right at the “my bills are paid” line but not room for really much else at all. If nothing else, please think positively for his recovery as I’ve chosen to and will hope with everything in me that he recovers and outlives his expectancy. This is my bestest buddy. And he’s had it so rough. He doesn’t deserve this. This last year has been the hardest and a lot of it is good change that was hard to take but this particular thing is just rough and awful and there’s no real reason or explanation for it. I’m heartbroken. Anything is helpful. I feel like I’m failing my buddy. Thank you
