About the Campaign

Coughing, and trouble breathing

Thurman has been diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). He is coughing consistently and seems to now be having some trouble breathing. His condition is getting worse and he needs tests now to help determine the best course of medications to make him comfortable.

Thurman is a Rescue

Sharon adopted him last year from a rescue. Thurman is older at 10 years, and was not getting adopted. Sharon had always had Beagles, and her dog had passed away about a year previously and she was ready to get a dog again.

When Thurman was adopted he had a slight cough, that was diagnosed as Kennel Cough. However, it never went away and, in fact, got worse.

Multiple vets

Sharon went through a series of vets with Thurman. He was diagnosed with COPD from the first vet she took him to, but different doctors have tried different treatments to no success. Sharon even took him to a holistic vet using herbal treatments, but that didn’t work out for Thurman either. She now has him with a vet she trusts, and he is on medications, that cost about $120.00 a month. But, his condition is not improving to the level the vet would like to see.

What Thurman needs

The doctor wants to do some tests to determine the best medications. As you can see in the estimate below (click to enlarge) this is about $800:

In addition we can expect his medications to be about $150.00 a month. So we have set his fundraiser at $1100 for the tests and two months of medicine. Here is a list of his current medications:

Financial Situation

Sharon is a single mom of three children, working as a pre-school teacher. She has already spent a lot of money on Thurman and is tapped out at this point. She needs our help to get Thurman these tests and his new medications!
