    Weʼve raised £365 to Pay for MRI scan & back surgery for Chewy my beloved five year old Pom.

    Funded on Saturday, 4th May 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Chewy is my beloved 5 year old pomeranian. She’s a happy little fluff ball and full of sass! A few months ago she began to walk with some difficulty, but with rest and meds & lots of love she was fine (albeit it a tad wobbly). Although she is a happy little girl, the wobble has reappeared. So as not to cause any permanent damage to her spine, she needs inevitable surgery in the coming weeks. This starts with an MRI, to discover exaclty what is going on under all that fluff, (this is £2,500 alone). After talking with multiple vets, she likely has disks out of place, pushing on her spinal cord and causing her back legs to not work properly. After scans and bloods will be the appropriate surgery to her back.

    As many of you will understand, the thought of any pet having surgery is a daunting one- and something that is only ever done when essential. Its also incredibly stressful, not to mention expensive. I understand this time of year is not ideal for any kind of spending, but every penny will go to Chew Bear getting better & running around with her pal Diego again. Anything you want to give is apprechiated and donation raffle prizes are listed below. Many thanks. X

    FOR EVERY £10 and above you will be entered into a raffle to win a doggy portrait (See examples below).

    FOR EVERY £20 and above you will be entered into a raffle to win a pet photoshoot with one A4 print and digital images, In the greater Leeds area. If you dont live in Leeds/Yorkshire please note in your donation so I can enter you into portrait prize (twice) instead.

    PLEASE NOTE: Anonymous donations will not be able to be entered.

      Chewy is going to be ok! We had a final check up with the vet a week ago ( apologies for the late update). He is so pleased with her progress and says she is as well as you could hope a dog to be who was in her position. However, her legs are weakened after resting so much in order to heal. So she needs to have hydrotherapy the next 6 weeks to build her strength again. Thanks so much for all your donations- they will go toward the therapy. I hope that’s ok with everyone. We are both so thankful & I am over the moon. Lots of love K& chewy x

      So! Chewy went to see our lovely vet yesterday. He was really pleased with her progress and thinks spinal bruising may be healing! Last week her right back leg wasn’t responsive at all and now her reflexes (albeit slow) seem to be coming back. So, we’re not rushing to surgery, but giving her around 3 more weeks of rest and crating to see how it develops. Thank you so much again for all your love and donations. ❤️
