College student's Sick Pup
Organized by: Vaneza Rodriguez-Diaz
My dog Zaya is nervous cocker spaniel with pretty severe separation anxiety. When left alone she tends to find random things to eat, usually clothes. I don't how she gets to it but every time I do laundry I find something else with holes in it. We have resorted to kenneling when she's not being supervised. All the random eating has come to a heartbreaking climax. One Sunday morning she spent vomiting and as a worried doggy mom I drove straight to the nearest Animal ER. She spent the day in the emergency room and they ran x-rays to see was was causing the vomiting. They found two foreign objects in her stomach. The vet had recommended surgery to remove the foreign object but I have no idea what to do or how I'm going to afford surgery for her. I'm currently enrolled in school to become a veterinary technician and with the little bit of money I have I paid for the x-rays but I don't have anything left... I'd hope you all pray for my baby girl and my family to get through this... I can't lose her. Any little bit helps!!
