My beloved tripod Mannie needs urgent help. Earlier this month, my 12 year old Border Collie suddenly fell ill - he wouldn't eat, he could barely walk and wasn't acting like himself. Doctors just ran a blood panel and found that his liver values were over 900 - the normal range is about 75. We urgently need to give him an abdominal ultrasound to check for any possible cancer, tumors, or disease within his liver or any surrounding gut organs. Without the ultrasound, we won't know what it causing his rapid decline in health.
Mannie has been with me for going on 12 years. He was rescued at the age of 1 after he'd been shot at close-range which is how he lost his leg. He is my forever buddy and best friend and I am bereft with not knowing definitively what is wrong. I know it is the holidays and money can be tight, but if you can spare it, anything helps me out tremendously. Once the ultrasound is given, we will then know how to proceed with treatment, be it surgery, antibiotics, or other treatments.
Thanks for helping my best friend.
