About the Campaign

Chipper got very sick

The video above shows Chipper at the vet after he got sick. They got his nausea under control, and he was very thirsty. Then you can see how active and fun he is normally! He’s a really good boy, a six year old little guy (normally) full of life! But he got very sick last Monday.

Chipper, and his vomit, not even digested:

Maribel got Chipper as a puppy, and they were living in Texas when he first had some Gastritis and then Pancreatitis back around 2020. Chipper was getting too much of that Texas BBQ, and his diet got restricted, and he was doing very good! He went about three years without a major incident.

In fact, that might be unrelated to what is happening now, or just a part of it. Chipper got really sick and was throwing up, unable to hold down even water. He went to the ER vet, got care and medication, went home and then got sick again! His tests are show a lot of possible problems. He may have diabetes, and his liver values and other issues make the doctor think he may also have Cushing’s Syndrome. You can see the analysis from the lab below (click it to enlarge):

Chipper is at Antelope Valley Medical Center where they are watching over him. His symptoms have gone down, and he seems to be doing better, but there is deffinately something wrong. Maribel has spent over $6000 now on the ER and then the hospitalization, maxing out her Care Credit. Chipper needs more tests, and it is looking like it will be about $2000, so that is what we are hoping to raise for him. The doctor is pretty sure about what is wrong, but they need to test him after treatment to see if and how he is improving and to then adjust his medication. All donations are for Chipper and paid to the vet for his ongoing care and medicine, below is his hospitalization bill:
