My nearly 4 year old Chiweenie, Luigi, was just admitted into the ICU this morning and must stay for several days. He has been having cluster seizures affecting his vision and ability to walk or stand, eat or drink. He is in critical condition and is about to undergo an MRI and Spinal TAP if they can stabilize him. We are needing donations to keep him in the ICU for several more days. The reasoning for the MRI and Spinal TAP is due to his brain inflammation and seizures. The testing is crucial because we need to figure out how to treat him, in a timely manner due to his condition being possibly fatal. We truly love our dog, and he plays just as big a part of our family as a child would. We would be eternally grateful to have him back home.. Any help would mean the world to us. Thank you all so much for taking the time to read this post. We were able to cover the costs for his consultation, medicine, and MRI/spinal tap for tomorrow, though the following days for treatment and boarding are completely beyond our financial capabilities. **We were unable to take any pictures of him in this stage so far because they took him into the ICU so quickly. Attached are some pictures of him before this happened. We will be sure to update photos as soon as are able to see him.
My fiancé and I bought a pure bred American Staffordshire Terrier at 10 weeks old, only to find out he was chronically ill and had not received any of his immunizations. We took him to the veterinary emergency hospital, after he vomited food and water for a whole day and had horrible diarrhea. The vet gave him a physical and tested for Parvovirus, which was thankfully negative. Ziggy was given an anti-nausea shot and prescribed anti-diarrhea and anti-nausea meds and sent home with instructions to feed him a bland diet of chicken baby-food and rice. Last night he continued to vomit and refused food, but kept water down okay, and still had diarrhea. He is very lethargic, nearly hypoglycemic, and won't give any food a second look. We called several vets and they all said the same thing and gave the same estimate, it looks like anywhere from 300 on the low end to over 1000 if he needs hospitalized. We're running out of options and don't know what to do. We put ourselves in debt for his last visit and they over-charged us for a parvo test and a physical, which turned up nothing, he' very weak and he sleeps all day because he's nearly hypoglycemic. He needs help urgently or he might not make it :(
