About the Campaign
Of course as a pet parent you will do anything to save your child!
Joey is a seven year old golden Maltipoo/ Yorkie. Joey was rescued with his brother, Griff as puppies. They have been living their happy dog filled life until a few days before Christmas. December 23st, 2018 Richard noticed Joey wasn’t using his back leg. It was late and Joey wasn’t barking or crying so Richard went to bed. In the morning Joey was unable to use either leg!!! Joey wasn’t able to walk at all.
Christmas Eve Day, Richard rushed Joey to the vet. This is when the vet told him if they wait any longer he could become completely paralyzed. Richard was put in a tough spot and decided to have the MRI. This is when the doctor saw the ruptured disk. The doctor gave Richard a 50/50 chance of Joey walking again.
After surgery Joey healed up well. He is still scooting around and not using his legs yet but the doctor said it is going to take time. The doctor has hope Joey will be able to walk again.
Richard is a retired man and didn’t have an extra $8,000 to pay for this. He had to take out a credit with CareCredit. He is asking for any help with this outstanding bill.
Any help for Joey is tax deductible and is paid directly to the vet!
