I am afraid I need your help for my beloved dog, Ute.
As some of you may know, Ute was diagnosed with end-stage liver disease nearly 6 years ago. At the time, she was given two months to live. Through sheer will (she’s a tough cookie!), a tremendous amount of love, and the miracles of modern medicine, Ute made it through that dire prognosis. However, today, she faces another threat.
The medicines that have helped here survive these past several years have had a horrible side effect – diseasing her gums and teeth and leaving excruciating sores (potentially cancerous) inside her mouth. Due to her condition, she was previously banned from any type of anesthesia or surgery for fear she wouldn’t have the strength to survive. After a recent blood test, however, we’ve learned that she can, in fact, have surgery to try to repair her gums, remove diseased teeth and treat the sores in her mouth.
I have decided to proceed with the surgery. Ute is my everything and has been my loyal companion for the past 11 years. I cannot bear to see her in such pain when there’s something I can do to help. Unfortunately, my current economic situation does not allow me to cover the entire surgery costs. So, I need your help to help my little angel get the treatment she so desperately needs and deserves.
Anything you can contribute to Ute’s fund is appreciated – no matter what size. I will be forever grateful for your kind heart and warm generosity. It’s going to be a long road to recovery for this little peanut, but if we can just give her this opportunity to fight – yet again – I know she’s going to do her part.
Thank you – thank you for just reading this, even if you don’t/can’t contribute. Thank you for your prayers and good thoughts, we will need them. And, thank you for spreading the word to others who might want to partake in Ute’s cause.
