Story

Olga was my first sausage, shes now the boss of a pack of four. Last January, on her 4th birthday she was diagnosed with IVDD (Invertebral Disc Disease) after losing all sensation in her legs. She was operated on and 2 herniated discs repaired and she made an excellent recovery. On saturday (18/02/18) she started showing signs of back pain, she was prescribed anti inflammatories and Tramadol and strict crate rest; as she could still walk often this is a good first line of treatment. Unfortunately as the days have gone on the sensation in her legs has decreased and after a visit to the vets last night was advised to take her back to the specialist. We are going today (21/02/18) at 10:30am. Surgery, if advised will cost in the region of £3000. Last year i spent over £5000 at specialist vets for her and Hans (now Brian). She is my baby and i fully expect to pay for her treatment, the only problem is being self employed and having a lot of debt i am struggling to get credit despite earning a decent wage, i don’t have the money up front to pay for it. On hearing my despair a few facebook friends have asked me to set up a page to help, so here it is.

Thanks to everyone any anyone that has offered support, whether it be emotional or financial, it is all massively appreciated.

    Hi all! I can’t believe people have donated £380 plus a donation in the post from a lovely lady towards Olgas surgery! Thank you so much, the vets have allowed me to pay in instalments so this will cover almost half of the first instalment which is a huge weight off of my mind! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Olga is doing amazingly well & has to go back on Tuesday for a check up. Here she is in her new t-shirt to keep the chills off of her heavily shaved back. I thought it was very appropriate ha! Lots of Love, Nicki, Olga & the Sausages xx

    Wow! £310! Thank you so much each & every one of you! It has helped to relieve some of the financing worry. Olga & the pack are insured but unfortunately Olgas back is excluded as it’s happened before, I had insurance before the first episode & cancelled it because money was tight & I was stupid, I said that my dogs would get what they needed regardless but I never expected two episodes :-( you know what they say insurance is always a waste of money until you need it! Please please insure your pooches, I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy xxx

    Olga is home after successful surgery to remove the disc matter that was pressing against her spinal cord and causing pain and loss of sensation in her lower body. The vet says she has made a remarkable recovery and is walking now, albeit in a wobbly fashion. I am so relieved she is home and will be eternally grateful for peoples well wishes and donations, here she is relaxing and enjoying a treat ❤️ xxx
