Pearl has been diagnosed with Bladder Stones, requiring surgery, as well as the condition known as Cystitis. Let's save Pearly!

For those of you who know me, you know that my five year old girl, Pearl, has been sick for some time this summer. I am starting this fundraiser, as after four weeks of Veterinary diagnostics, Pearl has been on four different courses of medication, has been given in clinic injections, been on a Prescriptive diet (about $180-$200 a month), and finally today has been diagnosed, through an ultra sound, as having 3 bladder stones, 2 cms each, in her bladder. As well as a condition known as Cystitis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feline_cystitis).

Pearl will be undergoing surgery tomorrow to remove the stones, and we will then be working on a plan of prevention to manage her cystitis (and prevent stone re occurrence) for the rest of her life: including on going presciptive food as well as Urinalysis every 6 months. By end of day tomorrow, Pearl's costs thus far will be reaching approximately $2500, which, sadly, many pet owners just do not have set aside for pet emergencies.

Not doing the surgery was not an option for me. Pearl is a little fighter, who at only 3 month's old battled, and won against, Feline Panleukopenia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feline_panleukopenia), a disease that almost always comes with a death sentence. Although, over the years, Pearl has become somewhat of a major financial commitment, there has never been a time where she wasn't worth the cost or the effort. I am looking to start this fundraiser to help offset the cost of Pearl's surgery, so that I can ensure her ongoing needs are met and that a time is not reached where finance's sacrifice this beautiful girl. All money will be going to Oakpark Pet Hospital, where she is being treated.

If you cannot help, I understand, but would love the help a 'Share' would offer. Either way, keep my girl in your thoughts, and I will keep you posted on her progress!
