Last Friday my wife and I purchased this adorable little girl Crystal. My wife has always wanted one and I was financial stable enough to purchase this beautiful girl with all the extras; bedding, flea and worm, worming, leads, collars ect... I also made sure we secured enough money in case of an emergencys.
Sadly this morning we noticed blood in her stool and she wasn't touching her food. We rang our vets and they arranged a emergency appointment. We weren't sure what to expect and were so glad we had some savings put aside for her. After having intense X-rays, blood test which had to be done via antithetic. The vet diagnosed Crystal with having some form of infection around her intestine and stomach. The blood test shows that Crystals white blood count was low and she was serious dehydrated. They decided that she needs to have a IV drip, fluids and strong antibiotics via injection. We were then told that they wanted to keep Crystal overnight at a different vets as they are not 24 hours. We payed the bill of £427.72.
After a successful transfer Crystal was settled into a different 24 hour emergency vets who sadly charge different overnight price because of the type of attention shes needing including blood tests every hour. We had to pay a deposit of £300 with a estimate for the night being £478.57 plus.
Crystals potentially looking at three to four days of being transferred from vets to vets. The truth is my wife and I are slowly running out of funds as we also have a 16 month old daughter. If you could help save our little girl it would be really appreciated any help. Sadly we don't qualify for any help from any charities or support groups.
