About the Campaign
Stones are painful, block the ability to pee and can cause kidney failure. Fortunately an immediate blood test (January 10th) shows that Lily’s kidneys are still functioning in the normal range. But she cannot pee well, and pees blood. It is painful for her and she is acting like a senior dog when she is just 4 years-old, a sure sign she has chronic pain now.
Lily had bladder stone surgery, but there have been some complications, additional treatment is necessary, and has run up the bill. Here are the additional charges:
How Anny got Lily:
Anny heard that a woman was looking for someone to take her dog, as her new home didn’t allow pets. Anny went to help, and took Lily, noticing that the dog appeared ill.
From Anny: “Lily is not active at all. She walks like an old dog. And there is no incision scar on her belly. Her belly is super smooth. So when we got home, we let her go potty and she urinated 4 times, all times she is in peeing position for a long time. Then we took her in, she peed again inside ( the lady said she is house broken and potty trained) and this is when I found out she is straining but only peed little.”
Anny confronts previous owner
Owner says “there is a chance, but I’m sure it’s just UTI”. Owner knew that Lily was having bladder issues but didn’t want to let Anny know. Finally, Anny did some research and made a vet appointment for Lily.
Vet Visit Determines
Lily was just taken to the vet were her bloodwork and urine test came back normal. She does have two stones one in her mid abdomen and one in her urethra. Anny just got this dog and didn’t expect to have to pay out $1,000. Anny wants Lily to get the care she needs.
Please help Anny and her family raise money to get this dog out of pain. There is no telling how long Lily has been like this. Anny and her family have bonded with this dog and want to keep her.
