O'Malley's Vet Bill

$910 of $850 goal

Raised by 22 people in 13 months
Update: We now know that we actually owe around $850.00. I can't even begin to express the gratitude we have for those who have donated.

O'Malley had a rough start to life. We found him in the backyard, starving and terrified last July. His first day in our home was July 4th. The fireworks were terrifying for him. He has been a grateful and loving companion to our family, but most especially to our son, Joey, every day since.

The day before yesterday, he spent the day running, playing, eating, and sleeping. Everything seemed fine. Then yesterday, he didn’t come running when I opened the tins for breakfast like he normally does. I found him sleeping on my bed. I picked him up and carried him to the kitchen and sat him in front of his plate. He sat in front of it, just staring. He started to walk away, stopped and squatted like he was trying to pee. I sat down beside him and started to pet him to try to find the problem. He cried when I touched his hip, so I thought maybe he had injured himself.

We took him to the vet immediately and upon examination, Dr. Raab found that his bladder was about the size of his head. She was able to express some urine, but not a lot. She told us that this is a life or death situation and he needed surgery immediately or his kidneys would shut down. Obviously we said, "Do whatever you need to."

Which leaves us in a financial bind. We could really use a little help. We will absolutely pay back anyone who helps out. It just might take us a couple of months to get everyone paid back.

I don’t have an exact amount as he may still spend another night, but our estimate is $1400. We paid half of that yesterday.

We’ve set up this account, but completely understand if your more comfortable donating to O’Malley’s account at the vet’s office:
All Creatures Animal Hospital
1894 Ohio Pike, Amelia, OH 45102.
(513)797-7387

Thank you so much.

Just called to get an update on O'Malley. The doctors are still waiting for him to pee on his own, but they are optimistic he'll be able to come home this evening.
We did find out that our final cost will be right around $850.
Thank you so much for your help. We can't even begin to properly thank you.

Thank you to everyone who has donated. You certainly are all special. It's touching that some of you have mentioned Sophie in your comments, as well. She would have been upset that someone else had the the spotlight for a moment... But greatful that you all have of yourselves. You are all wonderful.

Sorry it isn't more but I am currently funding my vet's retirement fund, his kid's college fund, his foreign holidays etc etc. Fingers crossed for a full recovery.
