Hi my name is Melonee . I got my campanion a year ago he weighs 6 pounds and all charm his name is Spikey Boy and the best thing of all he loves me back just as much. Last month on 3-26-2016 myself and Spikey Boy were out side playing in the water and running around the car . The fence was cracked a little bit next thing you know I heard Spikey Boy crying and screaming in pain a pitbull had came threw the fence and attacked him . As long as I live I will never get that thought out of my head. The pitbull had bit into him taking his right shoulder 26 centermenters deep and crushed his right leg . A man and myself did everything we could do for the pitbull to let him go finally he let go. Spikey Boy ran under the RV completely in shock I crawed under there and grab him put a shirt over him ran up stairs for my daughter to take me to the animal hospital. The first one I went to were very rude and let me and Spikey boy sit there while he was servearly opened up bleeding . My daughter starting getting very upset with them so they started to help us. They started to help and it was like they were hurting him more and not really understanding what they were doing. I think they were in shock as well. They said the best option was to amputate his leg . I would not allow that so they gave me a referral to a orthopedic animal specialist . We went straight there. I got there all staff was waiting with open arms. He was took back right away. Spikey and I have never been apart . It felt like had lost my best friend it still hurts to this second. They got him bandaged up and was giving him the. Medical attention he needed. The veterinarian Clare Hyatt had came in and talk to me she said he would have to have surgery but it can't happen until following evening Dr. Hyatt gave me the run down on how much every thing was going to be it came out to $9,000 . my heart fell in my stomach and I told her that I couldn't afford that . I had to pay 75% before they would do the surgery. Surgery was performed the next day he was in surgery for over 4 hours . I wanted to go see him after surgery but they said I should wait and come in morning. He was in there Care for 4 days I called every hour contantly went in to see him and bring him treats and toys . his little tail would wag when I walked in but he couldn't move I cryed from the minute I arrived to the minute I left. He finally got to come home they gave me in instructions. I followed them as givein . I brought him in 3 days prior to his first week appointment to get his bandage changed out . he is constantaly held So it get dirty faster. Got there They took him back .when They brought him back they said the stitches has ripped open and they can see medal that his tissue was abnormal it was gonna be a long healing process and another surgery and if I could finicial take care of him. If not. I should surrender him I about died right then I couldn't believe it. They said I should surrender him! They told me his bandage changes would be $90 everytime..So we were bringing him in everyday then it moved to every 2 days because it was looking better and healing they told me that to don't. Bring him back for another 4 days well I get to his appointment and they put me in a room right away and took Spikey Boy to the back . I waited for almost 2 hours. The door opened and the finacial lady "Cathy" walked in with to officers They asked if I new why they were there . I said no. They read me my Miranda rights and said I was being detatain.Were here because these people called and said you have been neglating your animals and abuseing them and your dog isn't healing propetly also human society has ceased your dog .I started balling my eyes out I couldn't believe what I was hearing. So the investigation lasted 4 hours things weren't adding up with the hospital "" they gave me Spikey boy Back .They lied and said he was at the dog park jumping around . They said I had a Dog in the car the whole time I've been there, that I always missed my appointments I didn't show up at my visit after surgery, they said I was giving him people medication He has never been to dog park in his life There wasn't a Dog in car I don't miss my appointments and was there 3 days prior to first visit after surgery I was giving him his medication from his doctor. This whole time the emergy hospital where Spikey boy had been they were sending over bad reports to Spikey boys Regular vet. So it all boiled down to this the hospital was trying to get Spikey Boys Bill payed and him took away from me for ever So in order to get his meds and bandage changes I have to pay I've sold a lot I just ask from your heart's please help me help Spikey Boy !!! He's my world.
