This is my best friend Tobi he has been with me since I was 10 years old, he’s coming up to 13 on the 6th of August we have been through so much together I honestly believed he saved my life after going into foster care after I couldn’t be with my parents anymore I managed to fight for him meaning he came to live with me and my lovely foster parents, I suffered from really bad depression due to things going on at home but we were a team and I knew I had to help us both and he truly kept me going whenever I was upset lonely or even ill I could always rely on him even to this day. I noticed recently he had lost a bit of weight and was drinking a lot more I took him to the vets and they said he has hypothyroidism Which they said could be controlled by tablets As soon as I got home I gave him the tablets however he had a reaction to them, his face swelled up to the point he could hardly see I was heartbroken, this was supposed to help him not make him worse so I took in back to the vets they then gave me Gel to put in his ears twice a day but this also gave him a reaction not as bad as the time before but made his forehead really dry and made discharge come from his eyes I was relying on this to control the thyroids Until I could get enough money for him to have radiation which has between 95% and 99% cure rate at the Anderson Moores Hypothyroid clinic New Hampshire, the treatment is around £2000. It’s extremely upsetting that I don’t have the spare money at the moment and I feel so useless but he needs the treatment sooner rather than later I’m trying my best because I owe him my life, he’s the only thing in my life to never let me down and been there whenever I needed someone.
