Help us pay for Nyssa's emergency

I don't often ask for help however, late last night our dog Nyssa, started to become sick (bleeding and diarrhea).  We ended up rushing her to the vet early this morning.  The vet informed us she needed emergency surgery to remove her uterus due to Pyometra. This is when the uterus does not shed enough layers and causes divots that allow infection to grow at a rapid rate.  If left untreated the uterus will have pus and expand until it explodes.  She was rushed in, and so far has survived the surgery but was also found to be septic.  When she comes home she will be on two different medications. 

As of now she is being monitor by the vets and vet tech over night to make sure she stays in a stable condition.  However, when she does come home we have to keep a close eye on her to make sure she doesn't go into shock due to being septic.

                                  A little bit about Nyssa:

Nyssa is a English Cream Golden, with an older sister name Aya.  Nyssa helps her mother who is a certified Positive reinforcement dog trainer for education causes as well as aggression cases.  She is also on her way learning how to help to be a therapy dog during Massage Therapy sessions to help ease clients who are in physical and mental pain.

She is loved not only by her older sister who is missing her right now but her mother Jennifer (human) and her Father Jesse(human).

I know it’s a lot to ask for but any would money would help out with her emergency veterinarian visit and surgery.    Right before she was taken in we were quoted for $993.00.  This was before the extra mediation was added and the fact it took longer than an hour to perform.  The vet mentioned we got to her in the nic of time as her case was severe and most likely wouldn't have made it in another day.   I want to thank all who helps to donate it’s the least we can do for a dog who offers so much to others in training, education, and Therapy.

Thank you

Nyssa is healing up nicely and the vet is extremely surprised and happy as to how well she is doing. She is keeping down her food and no longer has stool that is blood. She is finishing up one of the three medications in the morning. Her incision is healing up nicely. We are also aiming to have her gain a little bit of weight as she had lost about ten pounds during this. On January 14 it will be her Birthday however, it will be too early for her to party so hopefully a week or two later we will do something for her. Once again thank you!!

Tonight we were able to bring Nyssa back home from VT. She is stable as of now but is on three different medications. The bill did end up being higher than the quote I had first mentioned (now its $1346.00 as long as she doesn't crash and needs to be rushed back to the vet this should be it). I am in no way expecting people to help out with the whole amount but any amount you can donate will help. Thank you again everyone, Nyssa sends her love. She is on bed rest for two weeks and other than a quick bathroom break she needs to stay in a calm environment. Her sister Aya is happy to see her and is staying close to her. We will keep you posted on new updates as Nyssa heals up.

Today we were hoping Nyssa would come back to us. Sadly we talked to vet and found out that she is toxic and must remain on IVs over night to keep her stable and try to flush out the toxins from her body. Her Ovaries were removed along with her uterus as they were found to be filled fully with puss which was leaking into her blood stream. We are hoping she will stay stable and be able to see her Friday afternoon.
