Diagnosis: Pyometra & Uncontrolled Diabetes

Low end of Estimate: $1312

Less Owner contribution: $100 ( all other funds exhausted)

Needed for low end of Estimate: $1212 + 4% for IMOM operating expenses = $48

Our Fund Raising Goal: $1260

Spayed: Will be during surgery

Volunteer case worker: Tammy

****ALL FUNDS RAISED ****

Samantha is a 7 year old Heeler Mix who has been diagnosed with Pyometra and uncontrolled diabetes.

This little girl is in big trouble and we must act now!

For anyone who doesn't know, Pyometra is a lethal infection of the uterus and must be removed ASAP via emergency spay or this pet will die!

Along with Samantha being so ill from the Pyo, she is also battling diabetes that is not controlled.

Her wonderful vet has already given her multiple medications and insulin to try to get it under control and to help her, to be able to keep food down.

Samantha needs her strength, as she must have her life saving surgery at Noon on Friday (Central Time).

Angels, we have to go go go on this one! Cross-Post this thread far and wide. Let's tell anyone and everyone that Samantha needs our help.

TO DONATE TO THIS PIN or you can donate to paypal@imom.org, please mark your gift "GF-Samantha Custard"

Thank you to everyone who continues to support our Pets In Need! We couldn't do this without you.

Tammy-IMOM

Please meet the sweet Samantha

Unfortunately, we aren't able to take any new sponsor cases at this time. BUT, this clinic is doing everything they can to make sure those needs are met: we're helping solve the immediate issue and they'll take it from there. We love this practice because they are so caring and go the extra mile for their clients. We'll be hearing from them this evening, I believe.

Thanks for caring about sweet Samantha!

Hello fellow animal lovers!

My husband and I are kindly requesting your assistance with our little Samantha. She is in desperate need of surgery for a pyometra and to get things started to regulate her uncontrolled diabetes. We were unaware of her ailments until she became pretty ill a couple of days ago. She was just not acting herself and drinking lots and lots of water. Although her tail has never stopped wagging for us, her eyes tell us that she is just..."sick as a dog". Her doctor tells us that she is in desperate need of emergency surgery or we could lose her. They have helped us out with some of the initial things that need to be done, but the surgery is imperative.

We are a retired couple living on a very low fixed income. She is our world and provides us with much joy. We provide for her, but this is something that is well beyond our financial means. Samantha is such a loving dog that is much more than a pet for us, but part of our family. We do not have any relatives that live near by, so she is all the extra company that we have. She loves to run and play outside...but is not doing much of this right now....

Please help us raise the funds so she can get the surgery she so desperately needs. My husband and I thank you in advance for any support that can be given.

Samantha thanks you as well, and is sending a wet nose kiss all your way.

Thank you

Dorothy Custard

Please keep putting out the word for our Samantha! She desperately needs the surgery tomorrow! Since we are approaching the weekend, the procedure needs to be done tomorrow because can't do surgery over the weekend. She cannot wait until Monday for fund raising. Anything you can spare would be greatly appreciated.

We missed having her with us today while she was at her doctor's office. She is next to us morning till night. Even though it was a little chilly today, I know that she would have enjoyed a romp around the yard while Frank and I drank our coffee. She missed her date with us in the living room watching the Today Show this morning as well. Matt Lauer is her favorite...and mine too! Where in the world is he?! I thought of her when Matt was visiting with the yodelling dog. I thought that he was so smart, but I know that Samantha would just think that he was showing off! She is pretty smart herself...she has trained US very well.

I am keeping my spirits up and praying that the funds can be raised for our baby!!!!!!

PLEASE Angels.....we only have overnight to raise the funds needed for Samantha to have her surgery tomorrow. This is definately a life threatening emergency. Closed Pyo's CANNOT wait....even overnight her system has to fight this building infection and being a diabetic on top of it is a lot to ask of any dog!

If you can help, please do so now!

I'm going to make a donation as soon as I finish writing this. I've gotta give something to a fellow heeler family. My dog Daisy is a red heeler so I know the joy and love these special dogs can give. Samantha looks like a sweetheart! I hope she gets the help she needs Friday. :)

Thank you IMOM Angels for helping raise funds for Samantha's surgery and treatment. Please continue to put your feelers out for anything contribution that can be spared.

We have put all of our savings into the treatment that she will need! She is also needing lots of after care that our savings is going towards with the help of the clinic that is going to be taking care of her. She misses us terribly while she is at the doctor's office...and we miss her. My husband and I have been unable to drive for a few years now, so one of Samantha's vet nurses picked her up from our house yesterday morning. She did not want to go. She wanted to stay with us, but I told her that she was going to get better. My husband has been worried about her as well. We don't want to lose her.

Thank you

Dorothy

Thank you Judy and Jackie and all of the IMOM Angels. Samantha has really started to go down hill this morning. We are very worried about her since her decline has been rapid. The pet nurses are on their way to pick her up from us to be evaluted by the doctor this morning. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. As soon as she has been looked at by her doctor I will update you on on her present condition. She is trying so hard to hang in there and so are we. Thank you for all of the contributions towards her care. I know that not all contributions to Samantha's cause could be monetary, but all the prayers and good thoughts are being sent her way as well. We will keep you posted as soon as we know more news.

Judy,

Thank you. Yes she will be staying at the clinic this morning. They actually just got to my house to get her and are on the way back with her to have the doctor assess her current condition. We live a little ways from the clinic so she should be back there in a little bit. They gotta drive careful because they are transporting precious cargo. Thank you ALL for all of the prayers and concern. We will continue to keep you updated.

Thank you thank you thank you to Judy G. We truly appreciate it!!

Dorothy and Frank
