Remove Charlie's Bladder Stones
Organized by: Dawn Donegan
Thank you for your time. My name is Dawn & I have an AMAZING son by the name of Charlie. My son is covered in fur & walks on all fours! He's definitely not average! When my pup was just 2weeks old, his mother suffered from eclampsia. From that point on, I had to bottle feed Charlie & his siblings. First, every 2hrs, then, every 4hrs, then every 6hrs & so on. At that age, they must be stimulated to use the bathroom. It was a hard job but THE BEST form of birth control! ;) Fast forward to 8 years later & he's still making me happy & proud without even really trying. I noticed Charlie was having difficulty urinating so I took him to the vet. Two tests and three x-rays later, we find that Charlie has bladder stones. About 6-8. The vet showed me the treatment plan and BEFORE the post-op care, it's over $1200. Charlie also has to be on a special, prescription diet now, for the rest of his life. At this point in my life, I don't have that amount. The vet said that the stones can cause a blockage & if that blockage occurs, he can be dead in 12 hours. Like I said, Charlie is not my dog or my pet. He is the son that I didn't give birth to. Any & all help is GREATLY APPRECIATED.
The vet saw my efforts & support for Charlie & decided to do the surgery on the good faith that I would be able to raise the money eventually!!!
I received a call mid-op saying Charlie had a stone in his urethra & needed an emergency urethrostromy. That added an extra $1,000 to the bill. :( NO POST-OP CARE NEEDED so that definitely saved me about $500.
Any & all help is needed & greatly APPRECIATED!
