About the Campaign
Desiree (Desi for short) is a very special girl. She was originally from Miami Dade Animal Shelter in Florida, confiscated from a home for being neglected.Since then Desiree has been moved twice. Kathy, her current owner has been following her since she was in Miami. Kathy was contacted in 2017 when Desi’s current owners had to give her up. Kathy was determined to get Desiree to her. With the help of some great pilots with Pilots N Paws, Desiree made it to her final destination with Kathy.
Desiree’s a new pup
Desi has blossomed into the most beautiful, loving girl and has even learned hand signals. A few weeks ago, Kathy noticed that Desi seemed to be snoring louder than usual. Keeping a close eye on her, things didn’t change, but seemed to get worse.
At this point Kathy took her to the vet, and it was determined that Desi has a “lump” under her neck, possibly a lymph node. At that time, the vet prescribed Doxycycline and a steroid. The vet recommends that Desi have x-rays of both her sinuses and chest, along with having the lump aspirated and sent out for biopsy. She was also placed on a different antibiotic to see if that would work any better. Currently, things are still the same.
A note from Kathy:
Desi is such a huge part of our family, and so loved. We are hoping to have the testing done so that we know what we are dealing with. I pray that she will be okay. I thank you for any donation that you can make for Desi.
