    Story

    Daisy is a truly adored cockapoo who gave birth to four puppies 4 weeks ago. For the last week she has been fighting for her life due to Post Eclampsia, an emergency medical condition associated with a life threatening drop in blood calcium that occurs in nursing mothers.

    Daisy's owners Nicky and Simon are utterly devastated that their beautiful little girl so very nearly lost her life this week. Three times they were told she had a 50/50 chance of survival and each time she has amazed us all and pulled through.

    Although she is now home and we are delighted she is on the long road to recovery she will have to have surgery to ensure this can never happen to her again and help rectify the devastation her little body has been through.

    Nicky and Simon are my best friends. The kindest most loving and supporting couple and their pets are a huge integral part of their lives and family. All of their family pets are covered by a Pet Insurance policy, but sadly no UK Pet Insurance will cover your animal for anything to do with pregnancy.

    Huge vets bills have been amassed (illness occurred on a Saturday evening and emergency vets had to be used) plus we anticipate these will still increase as further medication and an operation is needed.

    People who have been made aware of Daisy's near death experience and terrifying circumstances have asked if they can help support Daisy’s recovery and that is why I set up this crowd funding page.

    I won’t mince my words, Post Eclampsia in a dog is a killer. Eclampsia is a medical emergency condition associated with a life threatening drop in blood calcium levels that occurs in nursing mothers. Eclampsia occurs most commonly in dogs when the puppies are between one to five weeks of age and the mother is producing most of the milk. Eclampsia is not due to an overall lack of calcium; it merely indicates that the nursing female cannot mobilize sufficient supplies of stored calcium quickly enough to meet her metabolic needs. Females that are particularly good mothers, like Daisy, are more likely to develop eclampsia.

    The warning signs of Eclampsia are very subtle to begin with and can so easily be missed. Fortunately Nicky and Simon saw subtle but definite changes in Daisy and rushed her to the emergency Vets last Saturday night.

    Next she was prescribed medication to cease her milk production. It was too life threatening for her to feed her puppies anymore. Nicky and Simon have taken the role of feeding the puppies.

    Daisy had 48 hours of dreadful pain as her body battled to continue producing milk for the puppies she had given birth to and worships. This followed with life threatening concerns of eclampsia, mastitis and sepsis, then watching the heartbreak of Daisy wanting to care for her beautiful puppies and not been allowed near them because of the effect it had on her little body.

    Please share this story and the knowledge that this can so easily happen to your beloved pet. Please think twice and do plenty of research before you consider putting your own beloved pet through a similar nightmare. Remember this can happen to anyone’s pet.

    Thank you on behalf of Nicky, Simon and Daisy

      I'm delighted to say Daisy is getting better and is so much stronger. She still has to undergo an operation in around 2 months but she really does appear to be so much healthier and happier. Thank you for all your help and support to date. Clare
