About the Campaign

Emma may have Urethral Cancer

In March of this year Emma had blood in her pee, and seemed to sometimes be uncomfortable. Emma’s owner, Lucia, is a senior citizen, and disabled, so she had difficulty getting Emma to the vet, but she managed. The doctor’s first approach was to treat Emma for a UTI (urinary tract infection), which basically involves a cycle of antibiotics.

However, this did not work and Emma continued to have her problem. The doctor then referred Emma and Lucia to a specialist, which was another difficult vet visit, and the specialist believes it may be Urethral Cancer, or maybe another type of cancer in the same area, such as the bladder.

Financial situation

Lucia is a disabled senior citizen, with spinal and neck issues from a fall. She receives disability, which is not very much, and so she started looking for organizations to help her with Emma’s bill. She got connected with Miranda’s People (link here), which helps dogs with cancer, but since Emma has not been diagnosed yet, they could not start a campaign for Emma. The staff at Miranda’s people paid on their own for Emma’s first series of tests, hoping they could get a clear diagnosis, but unfortunately, the tests were inconclusive.

Lucia got Emma as a puppy almost nine years ago. Some kids in the neighborhood were walking around trying to give Emma away. They had found her stray, and taken her home, but their parents told them “no dogs!” Lucia was worried Emma would end up in the wrong hands, and took her in.

Now Lucia (with the help of staff at Miranda’s people) has spent almost $2000 getting Emma treated and diagnosed. But, the tests have been inconclusive so far, and another round of different tests is needed. Miranda’s People is on board to help Emma if a cancer diagnosis comes back, as are we at Free Animal Doctor, so it is really important to get Emma this series of tests right now!

Emma still has blood in her pee, and there is some indication she is now having trouble peeing. The situation is getting kind of urgent now, so donations are needed right away! All donations are only for Emma, and will only be paid to the vet for her exams and testing! Can you help little Emma today?

      What do you mean she’s going to die because she hasn’t had the other testing. Is she not doing well right now?

        Emma needs a few tests and has to go to Manhattan for a specialist with equipment small enough for her.
