Quote from Marbles owner "My dogs name is Marbles. He is a jack russell. I rescued him from a local dog rescue in 2012. He is going to be 5yrs old this summer. Marbles has IMHA (immune mediated hemolytic anemia). In February 2015 I had to take him in to the er vet because he was on his death bed. We found that he has this IMHA and his body was killing his red blood cells. Well we have been treating him for 13 months and he was getting better. But we just recently found he has a tick borne illness called Ehrlichia. So we have started treating him for that. He has had a total of 3 blood transfusions and has been on and off all kinds of medication to try and help him get better. Just yesterday he got really sick again. This infection from the Ehrlichia, has been keeping his medicine from working to help him not destroy his blood cells. He's very anemic and will need another blood transfusion to help his body get back to a good blood count until his antibiotics get rid of this infection." That's what he told me and i want to help him raise money to take care of Marbles "We have spent thousands of dollars on trying to save him. He is my little companion. I am 20 years old and trying to start college. Marbles and I are always together we kind of balance each other out. He's like my child. I've run out of money to take care of him and really don't want to put him down because he can be helped with treatment. " he means a lot to his owner, even though I've never met any of them personally I can tell there both great
