Story

This is our little fur baby Roo. He is only 18 months old and is in urgent need of spinal surgery to prevent his back legs ending up paralysed . (He has IVDD) The pet hospital that we’ve been referred to are charging £6000+ which is absolutely impossible for me to get together. How they can expect people to find that kind of money upfront is beyond me. His insurance won’t even cover a CT scan. I have taken him to the charitable vets and they are unable to help due to it being specialist surgery. I can’t explain how heartbroken I am that I’m unable to help him.. I’ve rang around charities regarding grants etc but I just ain’t getting anywhere. French bulldogs normally suffer with this when they are a lot older, once again making us one of the unlucky bunch. If he doesn’t have the surgery his spine will just keep getting worse and more ruptures can occur leading to paralysis. How can this happen to such a young dog?!

For those who don’t know me, we got Roo a few months after my son Riley passed away. It may sound silly to some but I feel like in a way I’m going through that heartbreak all over again. I called him Roo after Riley, (Riley Roo) and he really did bring back some happiness in our home. Not only that, my little boy Freddy adores him.. which is making this so much harder for me when I’m completely helpless.

To all the dog lovers out there, if you would like to make a small contribution we would be beyond grateful. Every penny helps.

Please help me get my baby better xxx
