About the Campaign
Little Canelo was acting very sick at the beginning of this year (January 2020), and his owner Karen took him to the vet. He had a number of tests, including a basic blood test and x-rays. It cost Karen almost $1000.00 but they were able to determine that Canelo had gastroenteritis.
Gastroenteritis: refers to inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, meaning the stomach and the intestines. It can be caused by infection with bacteria, viruses, parasites, medications, or even new foods.
Canelo was treated with medications and got better!
But then at the beginning of May his symptoms came back! This is a painful disease, and potentially life-threatening. Unfortunately Karen is now very low on money… she was a nanny, but with the COVID19 Pandemic in Los Angeles, no one needs a nanny and she is out of work.
Canelo needs a full blood panel, and medications again. The doctor wants to know more, because he should not have gotten this again, and it may be something more complicated, or they need to figure out the reason it reoccured.
Let’s help Canelo get the tests he needs to make a better diagnosis, and the medicine to get better!! If you can donate to his care, please know all donations here are only for Canelo and will only be paid directly to his vet! THANK YOU AND WOOOOOOOF!!!
