My ten and a half year old cockapoo, Molly was diagnosed in May with congestive heart failure due to one of her mitral valves snapping. I have been struggling ever since to keep up with her vet bills. Molly also had an attack of severe diarrhea and was bleeding badly in September. We rushed her back to the vet at 2 am and it was discovered that she developed Thrombocytopenia. Meaning she had abnormally low platelets. Something that was totally unrelated to her heart disease. My bill doubled in the week she was there. This has been a nightmare for all of us. Molly has been so brave and I will do anything for my heart dog. She is my baby and I love her so much. She once saved my life and now I need to do this for her. As you can imagine, the cost for treating her medical issues is growing daily. She is on multiple medications to help her. She needed a blood transfusion, chemotherapy drugs and steroids to suppress her immune system, so that she could generate platelets on her own and not bleed to death. I will be honest and tell you I work at the vet hospital as a receptionist, where she is being treated. However, even with my employee discount, her bill is approaching $7000.00 and I was told today that I can no longer add any more of her expenses to her bill per the management at IVG hospital where I work. Meaning anything additional that Molly needs has to be paid at the time of service. I understand their position. They are not in the business of giving away their services for free. Still, it doesn’t make it any easier to look in my girls eyes and think what will happen to her “next time.” It looks like she has a long road ahead and I need help. I know everyone is having their own economic issues and it pains me to ask for help. If it were for me, I wouldn't care, but I need to help my baby girl. The only thing going through my mind right now is if she needs any additional care, I will be forced to put her to sleep due to the economics of this. I know I am not the first person to be in this position. God knows I have seen it regularly for the past five years working in this field. It just breaks my heart to look at her and think that I may have to let her go before it is her time. I am at a loss as to how to get her the help she needs. Thank you,
