My name is Heidi,
I am 7 years old... instead of presents this year I have asked Santa to make my little chihuahua Boo better.
Boo got sick on Saturday 20th November and me and mummy took her to the vets - she had surgery to remove a suspected foreign body but when the vet opened her up he found a gritty/sandy substance throughout her intestines (mummy suspects it's cat litter) her intestines were inflamed and had gone into stasis (stopped working) the vet massaged them and they started to move a little.... Boo came out of surgery just after midnight and came around pretty quickly from the anaesthetic. On Monday morning we were told that Boo was doing okay but was quiet and needed pain relief, intravenous fluids and some other medication mummy said okay that's fine just make her better but at 10.20am mummy missed a call from the vets - Boo had taken a turn for the worst, she had collapsed... she needed oxygen, her blood glucose levels were dangerously low and she was hypothermic. The veterinary team were fantastic and managed to make Boo cling onto life but now days on our little Boo is still gravely ill but is still fighting and making small baby steps of improvement.... Chihuahuas are small and mighty you know!!
Boo is only 8 months old and has a fighting spirit, we've cancelled Christmas at our house as mummy said to me and my big brother "do you want presents or Boo" as mum cannot afford both and the house on her single wage - WE CHOOSE BOO!!!
If you could choose to help Boo and spare any small amount we would be eternally grateful.
Thank you for all your love and positivity and a deep thank you to all the veterinary staff for all the care they are giving our baby 💖

Thank you for all your love and best wishes - your support means a lot to us, Boo is taking baby steps in the right direction and after 6 days hospitalised she's seeming a little brighter she still needs a lot of veterinary care and will remain hospitalised for a while.... don't give up fighting little Boo 💖
