Emergency Surgery for a Dog
Organized by: Silvia Alsua
Hi! My name is Max. I'm a American cocker-spaniel who lives with my mommy, my two human sisters, and my doggie sister, Chiquita, in New Jersey. I love to play with my family, run around the yard, and do the things that make most dogs happy. I'm only 6 years old, but I woke up this morning and I couldn't walk. My mom took me to the vet and I found out that I have a damaged disk. The vet says I need surgery right away. This is going to be financially difficult for my mom because she's a single mom who works very hard to take care of us. My mom's name is Gisela. She has a big heart and lot of compassion, but unfortunately she doesn't have a lot of money. She is very worried about me, but she will never think to ask for help. But I also know she doesn't want me to be paralyzed. My doctor told her that we need to take care of this problem right away and that it will be very expensive. I will appreciate any help that you can give us. I know you don't know us so, therefore we will be happy to give you any information you may need in regards to my procedure or doctors. Please help me get better. I really am the only man in the house and I will like to continue to take care of my family. Sincerely, Max the Cocker-Spaniel.
