Storm is a 10-week-old Australian Shepherd puppy; two weeks ago, she was given to her new human mom for free as she was the runt of the litter. Storm has since been diagnosed with megaesophagus. She has been on a liquid diet since the diagnosis and her health is deteriorating. Storm needs radiographs and then placement of a feeding tube so she can receive the nutrition she needs. She also needs surgery to address the megaesophagus. Otherwise, her health and quality of life will continue to deteriorate, and ultimately she faces euthanasia.
Here is what Storm's human mom has to say about her:
Hello, I have a ten week old Australian Sheperd who desperately needs your help! She has had trouble keeping her food down. She was diagnosed with Megaesophagus with a Vascular Ring Anomaly, that is only correctible through surgery at Cornell that I cannot afford. Please help before it is too late.
