hi, all. i have been a member of this forum for over 14yrs. i have not been active for quite some time. i am posting now, looking for some help.
i found my amazing sophie bean in this site. she was re-homed with me (in ky) from alaska 11yrs ago; she was almost 1.
she has fallen ill and needs surgery. she has gall bladder mucocele and her gall bladder needs to come out asap before it ruptures!
i am struggling to raise the money for surgery. i have created a GoFundMe account and am trying to share it everywhere i can think of to get help.
please consider...
if you can’t donate, please keep her in your prayers!!!!
thank you!

My cocker has the same problem as he is on drugs for his gallbladder, the vet say's no to remove. He is the second longest living today at 12. We had two ultrasounds the second showed improvements but on special food. I think they tore his larynx during his last growth removal. Sounds awful when he pants.

Today the meds were 130.00, for a month, dog food 65.00 for a 17 pound sack.

Wish I made the choice to treat his cushing two years ago but UC Davis said he didn't have it. They were wrong, just shows that they don't know any thing or I was to conservative for treatment as for me to catch it early by his blood work. Lots of people have posted this problem with UC DAVIS.

Good luck
