Oscar Fundraiser

$1,215 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 33 people in 15 months
Oscar (and his lady friend Rosie) were abandoned during Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Nobody claimed them at the shelter, so they came to live with me and never left. Shortly into fostering, Oscar had his first (known) seizure  which set us on a long journey of trial and errors trying to find the right combination of diet, medications, herbs, etc. that might help. Over the years he’s had stable periods, and then he has bad periods where cluster seizures occur. It’s a never-ending battle we fight together every day.

You can read more about Oscar’s full back story and our mission to save him here:  https://www.luckypuppymag.com/oscar-the-stray-gets-healthy-in-pug-paradise/

Normally Oscar has  grand mal seizures every 1-2 weeks, but lately they have been happening more frequent. He is on 3 different types of western medications plus various herbal supplements that help, but he still has them.

WARNING - Video may be disturbing. These are what Oscar's seizures look like. 
 

I’ve been told by countless vets that “maintaining” is the best we can hope for at his age with all his issues. He doesn’t know what’s happening when he has the fits, and the doctors have assured me he doesn’t feel any pain. I believe it’s harder on me than it is him.

I’m religious about giving Oscar his medications around the clock, and being there for him 24/7. I made a commitment to this living breathing soul the day I pulled him from that shelter and I take my commitments seriously.
 
In addition to his idiopathic epilepsy, Oscar also has a number of age related issues including chronic bronchitis for which we are also always managing this condition with herbs, inhalers, and special treatments to keep his lungs as healthy as long as possible and keep him from developing recurrent pneumonia.
 
My only goal is to give Oscar the best quality and quantity of life possible, After his previous life of cruelty, abuse, neglect, and abandonment isn’t that the least I could do?

I'll keep fighting for Oscar, as long as he continues to fight and show me that he's enjoying life. Won't you agree he his WORTH fighting for?
