Hello! First of all, thank you for taking the time to read Betou's story!
I call you because my turtle Betou is getting worse and worse, she was diagnosed with pneumoniae and her chances of survival are really very low, she must perform surgery very quickly to survive. But unfortunately I do not have all the money. I hope you could help me because it worries me a lot and I really care about my turtle.
Betou is a turtle of earth that I found in my garden talking with friends a good afternoon.
I did not want to leave her alone out of fear that she would be attacked or eaten by predators, or even by my dog. So, I'd put it in a little box inside my house while waiting for someone to pick it up. She had stayed there, but no one had come to fetch her. So I decided to keep it and take care of it. And since then, that's how we became good companions. I do not regret a single day I have recovered. I left her sometimes in the garden to get some sun and then in the evening I returned. I also built a small basin for her to bathe, sometimes when she needs it, but I never let her stay too long either. I had even found her companions so that she would not feel alone. She was normal but for a week I noticed that she was not behaving well and had become in bad shape. Her shell began to turn whitish with cracks and she was breathing with her mouth open and breathing hard. her saliva had become abnormal and she was screaming in distress by making tunes and exaggerating her movements with her paws when she had to breathe. I was worried so I went with him to a vet to find out what was going on, and unfortunately his diagnosis revealed that he was suffering from pneumonia and that he would have to have surgery done in a short time to get there. to ensure its survival. I just spent money on her exams, skin disinfection and resin reconstruction, I can not find enough to pay for surgery to treat her pneumonia.
Here are the details of the costs of his treatment:
- consultation: $ 50.50
- surgical operation: $ 1,500
- Basic pre-operative cost including: blood test, hematocrit, hemoglobin, urea, creatinine and plasma albumin: $ 32
- Hospitalization: $ 72. 80 / day
She must remain on watch after surgery for at least 2 days
Her salary will cost a total of $ 1900 and I will have to cover the expenses myself. Unfortunately, I do not have all that money. Please make a nice donation to help save BETOU's life! I ask you to MAKE THIS GESTURE OF KINDNESS TODAY for a little turtle ...
