Chino is a rescued bull terrier / pit bull mix. I took him from a life on a 2 foot chain to a well mannered and healthy and happy family member. I call him Mr. Bean and he is loved by many. About a month ago Chino started losing weight and screaming in pain with very simple movements. My primary vet and I began several different treatments, but as his pain continued to progress we decided to take Chino to UT Vet Hospital for more advanced diagnoses. The first visit, blood work and infectious disease tests were 400$, which I paid that day. Today, after a consult with the neurological staff, we learned that Chino is suffering from some kind of injury to his C1 vertebral area where the skull meets the spine / brain stem meets the spinal cord. To determine whether it is genetic, infection or an injury an MRI and CSF tap are needed. After that we will proceed with surgery or other treatment as deemed appropriate.

In 6 years Chino has overcome mange, heart worms, malnutrition, staph infections, allergies and abandonment. These medical battles were fought within the past two years and totaled more than $4,000. Now, Chino faces diagnosis, treatment and recovery from some form of spinal-trauma:

Estimates Are
MRI & CSF Spinal Tap: $1500.00
Potential Surgery: 1 - 3000.00
Recovery or medication: ?unknown?

I have made arrangements with the University of Tennessee Vet. School that will allow me to pay on the final balance with monthly installments. We are not sure of the final or total cost or prognosis, as his diagnosis had not yet been made; however, from the estimates above I am looking at a very expensive vet bill. I would greatly appreciate any help that you or your family, friends or business can offer!

I have given my life to these dogs and these dogs have given their lives to me. Now, when my finances are low and expenses are high, please help me help them.

Namaste.
