I know this must be so hard, but at least you now know what is wrong and it is something can be fixed.
Becky deserves to have a good life and to be a happy puppy, and you deserve to stop being worried and scared for her.
Have you heard of Chip In? You set up a site where people who want to help can contribute. It is chipin.com. You say how much you need to raise and why and people can donate to help.
You can then post a link to it on Facebook or other sites and people who want to help can chip in.

I am so sorry to hear this. Bless her little heart and yours too. Seems like awhile back there was a thread that said there were some organizations that would help with vet bills in some circumstances. I did a search but couldn't find it . Maybe this will help.

Oh sweet Becky.....

I'm still praying for you. I'm glad that you have woken up from the test....and I'm glad they found what was wrong.

Anna.... I will keep praying. In times of struggle, there is always a way. I know that's hard to see right now. But there will be a way. Becky will be taken care of. ChipIn is a good idea... I'd try to set that up.

Hugs

Anna - I'm so sorry. No wonder Becky's been so sick for so long. Encouraging to hear others talk about the surgery. I'm assuming the breeder you used was a BYB because it really is uncharacteristic for ethical breeders not to pay money towards surgery for a shunt. A chip-in's a good idea. I did one for Linda when Bonnie died and she had thousands of dollars in vet bills. It's very easy to set up if you just go to Chip In.

Anna, I'm so sorry that Becky has a liver shunt . Like the others mentioned, try to contact her breeder to let her know that it IS a confirmed shunt. She should really alter her breeding practices even if nothing more. This is a congenital issue in Becky's case and is usually covered by some health guarantee for the first year. I know she was upset in September, but you and Becky deserve better. Please find the courage to reach out to the breeder. Praying for you both.

I am glad you have answers and now we will join you in raising the $ to get her the care she needs. You are loved. She is loved. How much is the estimate for the surgery? Definetly start a Chip-In so that those who can, will donate. Maybe we could do some type of a clothing, fluff supplies sale on our Classifieds forum on SM? Is that permitted? Anyone who wants to participate could list clothes, supplies, dog beds etc and we could all purchase the items listed. The $ raised from the items could be donated to the Chip-In. We all love bows, figurines, clothes etc....why not donate a few things for a great cause? Thoughts?

I agree with Marissa. Anna needs to contact Becky's breeder and find out if she will help with the cost of treatment. Hopefully with a confirmed diagnosis, the breeder will be cooperative.

I suggest any donations wait until after Anna has spoken to the breeder. A definite treatment plan needs to be decided upon as not all shunts are operable. If and when surgery is recommended and Anna selects the hospital who will perform the surgery, she can set up up a fund for Becky there. Anyone who cares to can then donate directly to the hospital cover medical bills. This has been done successfully on another dog forum I belong to. It is really much safer for the donors than chip-ins.

Anna, you may also want to see if any financial assistance is available to you.

Financial Assistance with Vet Bills
