Help the dogs affected by the algae

$960 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 28 people in 10 months
Costa is one of three dogs in our area who have suffered sudden onset liver failure presumed to be due to living in proximity with the algal blooms.  We are working on making a definitive connection, but all signs point to classic cases of cyanobacteria toxicity.  The owners took proper precautions and did not let their dogs swim in the water, however there is no way to prevent aerosol exposure and dogs get their noses in everything. After intensive care, the first two dogs, Pandora and Stanley,  are back home, but will need to continue to have their liver enzymes monitored indefinitely.  Costa is still hospitalized. These families have already spent between $5000 and $7000 each, and the expenses will continue until their pets' liver values normalize.  This means more laboratory tests and liver support medications.   Any monies made in excess of these families' veterinary bills will be donated to Kansas State University Veterinary School for more research into cyanobacteria toxicity in dogs. Please consider donating to help these families and their beloved pets.

Since our last update, we have some devastating news. We have lost a dog to the algae.. Finn, a vibrant Standard Poodle. Our deepest condolences to the family.
We also have two more dogs affected as of this evening.
Pandora and Costa are improving. They are feeling stronger and their lab values are improving, but they are a long way from recovered.
Please help in any way you can.

We just found out Costa was seen at the shoreline of a neighbor's house. The neighbors took her home. The vomiting started one hour later.
