Help With Shih Tzu dog ICU Hospital Bill

$2,800 of $5,069 goal

Raised by 30 people in 3 months
My 5lb Shih Tzu who is almost 15 years old on Friday, was making some strange sound so I rushed her that evening to the animal emergency hospital in Rockledge. She wound up needing CPR during xrays to bring her back to life and then again shortly after. I got this dog there right on the nick of time! They diagnosed her with heart failure and later pulmonary hypertension. As of today Monday the March 11th she is still there.

She's been on oxygen, which she was finally taken off of sometime in the middle of the night.  They have done blood work a few times because her kidney levels were as high as 127, which is dangerous for a tiny dog. It has dropped a tiny bit with medication, but not enough yet.

The bills are huge being at an emergency hospital. I am a former teacher. Most people know that teachers don't make much. I am currently trying to find another full time job. So I am really having a hard time coming up with the vet bills and future medicine to keep her alive. I've had her since she was a puppy.

I hope to take her home tomorrow. If not, the bill will go up even more, but I want her to be fine before coming  home so I don't have to rush her back there.

I would appreciate any money that you can donate to help with her medical expenses from the hospital and medicine.  If you can't donate please share this as each share helps a ton as well!

See the updates for the actual vet bills!

Thank you so much,

Brian

Snuggles continues to hang in there. She's up more in the night since being groomed. Please pray we can both sleep better.

Thank you so much for helping me hit 900 shares! Let's reach 950 by the weekend. Share, share, share please! Donate if you can afford to help and keep praying. Prayers have certainly helped a ton!

Thanks,

Brian and Snuggles

You and your prayers are absolutely amazing! My dog has been completely groomed! She bit her a few times I'm told including once that hurt badly so I don't know if she will do her again, but hopefully so in 3 months or close to that.

Please pray there are no side effects from grooming.

Share the great news for me! 2 more shares until I hit 800 shares thanks to you. God is good as He listened to all the prayers. Keep sharing, praying, and thanks for the donations too! Let's get to 850 shares by next weekend!

Thanks,

She is set to be groomed Saturday at 10:15am Eastern time zone without any medication to calm her and without being knocked out!!! Please pray that all goes completely well! Pray that she is able to be completely groomed, doesn't get hurt, and doesn't end up with an anxiety attack, which could cause her passing away. Lift her up in your prayers please, especially Saturday morning and early afternoon!

This picture shows how badly her face needs cut.

Keep praying, sharing (let's get to 800 shares total!), and donate if you can. 1 credit card paid off. Let's knock the debt off the other!

Thank you and God bless,

Brian

Well that was a mixed bag today trying out the Acepromazine. It took 4 1/2 hours until she was asleep to the point that she didn't wake up when I touched her. I was able to touch her face all over, but about 5 minutes later she woke up and then did not like me around her face.

I asked the vet about calming treats that several have mentioned to me as I found out Pet Supermarket will be giving away samples on Saturday during a hurricane preparation for pets event. My dog is picky with treats so I don't know if she will eat them. He said I can try it, but it may not be effective. It's worth a shot. If that doesn't work he has Valium or something else that he can call in a prescription for. So I'm not giving up hope yet.

Please keep praying! Pray that these treats work without side effects so I can get this dog groomed if I can find a groomer. Tomorrow will be 3 months since a hair cut and it is growing and growing. Thank you for the prayers, shares, and donations! Getting closer to 750 shares! Let's do it!

Thanks,

Brian
