Zoe is a 3 yr English Bulldog with a possible obstruction or intestinal issue/infection. Zoe's vet indicated exploratory surgery is needed w/in 5-7 days (that was 6 days ago). Zoe continues to vomit and not eat - looking at her picture - she is very thin. Zoe's mom, Ashley, lives with her mother and is a working college student. She has limited income and has spent a lot trying to find out what's wrong with Zoe. Zoe's current vet wants to get to the bottom of this as Zoe is about 30 lbs under weight and declining. They are the only vet that have been able to get her to respond a little to meds and food, but still she vomits. Zoe has been through way to many tests and procedures to continue. She must have surgery tomorrow morning.
Note from Ashley's mom: Hi, I'm Ashley and I have a 3.5 yr old bulldog named Zoe who has an extraordinary spirit. She's battling a life threatening intestinal infection or obstruction. I've exhausted my finances on numerous tests & treatments @4 Vets, who've concluded that she needs exploratory surgery. Zoe exhibits the will to live but needs this surgery to find out what is causing her ailment. Every Vet professional has also noticed that Zoe has a unique bond with me that anyone can see. Zoe has been by my side through so much and she is my family. Please help save my family because we are each other's support that gets us through each day. Ash&Zoe
