Nell's vet fee help

$590 of $500 goal

Raised by 15 people in 17 months
I'm not one to ask for help and certainly not when it comes to money so it is with a great amount of strength that I am reaching out, seeking any small donation that might help my family cope with a huge vet bill coming our way.
To us our dogs aren't just pets, they are family. Our four-legged kids! So when something happens to them, it's heartbreaking and we do everything in our power to help them, whatever it takes.
I've had some rotten luck with the dogs the last few years but yesterday finding one of my 15 week old pups crying out in pain and unable to move was incomprehensible. My naughty, crazy, hyperactive pup was now looking at me with sad eyes needing help.
My ability to get help quickly is now somewhat affected, having a one month old baby that now sets the pace (who continued to scream throughout my efforts of making Nell comfortable), leaving me to rely on the availability and assistance of family and friends at times. Thanks to my sister Bree (also sick and with toddler in tow), who was able to get her to a vet and then transfer her to our regular vet.
So Xrays confirm poor little Nell has broken her tibia (back leg) and is requiring surgery to have a plate put in. She remains in good hands at Baker St Vet in Wangaratta on strong pain relief and her leg stabilised in bandages until she can have surgery Monday or Tuesday. It is expected that she will make a full recovery, which is such a massive relief considering vets had mentioned amputation and euthanasia as possibilities before knowing the extent of her injury.
With a new bub, the emotional rollercoaster I experienced yesterday put me at an all time low, trying to divide time between bub and pup, guilt of not being able to help Nell more and the stress of how I was going to cover costs. Can't thank Cassie enough for coming and holding me up.
I truly appreciate all of you who have taken the time to read Nell's and my ordeal, and can't thank you enough if you have been able to spare a small donation towards Nell's treatment.
Much love xx

For those following our journey...
Yesterday Nell went in for surgery to repair her fractures. A plate was affixed to her tibia, whilst the fibula was manipulated back into place. The vet is very happy with how the surgery went and expects Nell to make a full recovery. Today my beautiful girl gets to come home, though as I have my little human to attend to, Nell will be having a quiet holiday with Bree who will be able to better attend to her needs at this stage of her recovery.
Huge thanks again for the love and support during a tough heartbreaking time, and to those who have been able to help us out just a little, I can't thank you enough xx
