This is my baby Ginger Snap. She is 6 years old, 4.2lbs  and we just found out today that she has 4 stones in her bladder and will need surgery ASAP.

Initially I thought it was a urinary tract infection. So we were treating her for that. Today I saw blood in her urine. OH NO!! So Xrays showed 4 stones in her bladder, 2cm each. Thats about the size of a garbanzo bean. (for lack of a better description) The urgent part of it all is that they are causing her to have the infection. Even with antibiotics it won't "go away". It can be fatal if not treated. I can't lose my baby...

As most of you, my close friends, know Im in transition with jobs and don't have ANY extra funds to cover this. I am applying for credit line increases where I can but it still won't be enough to cover the surgery. The surgery estimates I have received are all $1800-$2000. If it could wait I wouldn't be asking for assistance from anyone. But it can't. If the stones block her urethra she can die without emergency surgery. As we all know, vets don't work an IOU basis.

Some ask about pet insurance coverage. Here's the scoop on that, you pay 100% up front and then they reimburse you after you SUBMIT the claim.

I have considered having a fundraiser yard sale/bake sale to raise funds but I don't have enough time to put it all together right now. If we can get the infection under control and the bleeding to stop I have more time to ask for item donations for the yard sale. In the meantime, I'm asking for ANY help you could give to help with her surgery.
