Help Atticus Overcome His Health Challenges
He needs bladder surgery urgently
Atticus, a brave dog battling a complex medical condition, requires urgent assistance. Diagnosed with diabetes three years ago, Atticus’s owner, Shanna, has worked tirelessly to manage his condition. Unfortunately, recent complications including urinary tract infections and bladder stones have made his health situation increasingly difficult.
Atticus’s Health Struggles:
- Suffering from diabetes-related health issues
- Antibiotic-resistant urinary tract infections
- Painful bladder stones requiring removal
- In need of stronger medications to manage symptoms
Shanna has taken Atticus for regular glucose checks and insulin dosage adjustments and helped him lose weight to keep his diabetes under control. Despite these efforts, treating his urinary tract infections and bladder stones has proven to be an immense challenge, leading to antibiotic resistance and the need for stronger medications.
Atticus now requires surgery to remove his bladder stones, estimated to cost $1,800. This procedure is expected to significantly improve his health, as his diabetes is mostly under control. In addition to the surgery costs, Shanna has already spent $700 on diagnosis and medication, and pays $250 to $400 a month for insulin, plus $150 per visit for glucose checks.
