Scout went in for her checkup on Monday and calcium level was 11.6. This is very good news she is in the normal range. The vet was very pleased See More

EVENT DATE Mar 24, 2016

THE STORY:

Scout is our beloved family dog. She recently was in for a routine dental cleaning. The vet suggested blood work to make sure that all was well.

Her blood work came back all good except for a high calcium level. After two other costly blood test we were told that our "Pooter" has primary parathyroid disease. This means that her parathyroid gland are not working properly and are causing her high calcium levels. There is only one treatment option, and that is surgery to remove the parathyroid.

If she does not have surgery her body will slowly start to shut down causing seizures, muscle stiffness and eventually she will have kidney failure. We are looking at a surgery cost from $2,500.00 to $5,000.00. She holds a special place in our hearts as many family pets do! We are wanting to move forward with surgery, but are also realistic that we do not have an extra $5,000.00. We have always been able to care for our pets and we know the responsibilities associated with owning animals.

Unfortunately, our little Scout has a very rare disease that is not common in dogs. We love her so much and can not imagine not having her in our lives. The good news is the surgery can completely cure the disease. The bad news the cost. Any amount will be appreciated more than you will ever know!
