Please help us to buy an MRI scan for our furbaby Bobby, who started fitting with no known cause.

At 4am on 11th July our boy had a seizure. It was the most terrifying experience of my life. He went on to have 4 more grand mal seizures in 12 hours, along with numerous smaller facial tremors.

Bobby is the love of our lives - for an otherwise childless couple he is our boy. He is the most loving, sweetest dog I've ever known - always hoping to please you, always excited to see you. He loves nothing better than playing with his rugby ball in the back yard.

He has received emergency veterinary care, and the vet is in the process of eliminating what could have caused the seizures. So far they have ruled out kidney or liver failure or hypoglycaemia. The vet wants to run further tests for toxoplaslosis and other parasites and also an MRI scan - he currently believes Bobby has either meningitis (due to a very high temperature), epilepsy or a brain tumour.

Money should never be an issue in these situations, but it is holding us back from giving him the best treatment possible. So far in 2 days we have spent £700 on medical fees - we are expecting this to rise to £1000 within the next day or so as more tests are conducted.

We have insurance, which we took out on 30th June after I started a new job - but we are in the 14 day exclusion zone so the insurer won't pay out. Further, whatever is wrong with Bobby will become a pre-existing condition which they won't cover either! So we are going to have to foot the bill ourselves.

We can't let Bobby down, so please help us to raise the money for a desperately needed MRI scan - once we know the cause of his seizures we can start him on the best treatment possible.

Thanks,

Caroline, Simon & Bobby
