About the Campaign

Coco’s History

Two months ago Coco had a few episodes that scared his parents. He would have a coughing spell, have a hard time breathing and even passing out a few times.  Tony, Coco’s dad took him into the vet where the EKG showed congestive heart failure. At this time Tony could only afford the EKG. This was the one test that would show Congestive Heart Failure. This test came back positive and the doctor saw fluid around his lungs.

 

The doctor gave Coco a supply of medicine for a month. That month and come and gone and now Coco needs more meds. The doctor will not give another set of medicine until bloodwork, urinalysis and another EKG. The doctor says it will be malpractice to refill without additional workup.

We need to hurry and help Coco… every day that Coco goes without the proper medicine he needs the worse he will get. Tony has just started a new career and doesn’t have the funds to pay for the additional testing. He is very concerned about his dog and wants him to be comfortable and able to live out his life happily.

    Coco needs to see another vet. I agree he needs bloodwork ASAP to check liver & kidney values, but it would be “malpractice” for the vet to not give a dog needed meds in my opinion.
    Once a prescription is given, it can be taken to any Target or Costco and be filled for far less than the vets office usually charges for the same meds.
    I work with several rescue groups that probably have some donated meds if we need to get Coco some meds until we can get the blood work taken care of .

      I completely agree!! Vet knows what the issue is already.

      My two dogs take heart meds & one med protocol is different from the other. One dog takes 2 different pills, and the other takes 3 different ones with 1 pill every 8 hours and the other 2 pills every 8 hours. A thorough echocardiogram, electrocardiogram, & blood pressure reading provide data for proper prescription regimen. Costs are high but necessary. In this case, heart medication not prescribed by the veterinary cardiologist should not be taken due to the high probability that the med protocol might not match the cardiac needs of the subject. I understand your frustration, but meds taken which are not prescribed by the proper vet might cause complications and even death.

    That’s crazy! My 19 year old dog just passed away 2 weeks ago. He had CHF for 4 years. I didn’t have to do that to get refills every month. Who can afford that? You need to find a doctor who’s not trying to rob you.
