Hi everyone! My 5 year-old dog Bordogoy/Goy has been in the vet hospital since January 03, 2021 for recurring ear infection in both ears. It started out as a rash, an allergic reaction that progressed to bacterial infection. Upon hospitalization he was recovering well initially, but along the way the infection in the right ear became resistant to the oral antibiotic and ear drop medication. We changed the medication since then, and he is responding well to the new treatment. The vet has also now included for Goy to take Apoquel daily for his itching for 4 weeks, that medicine costs PhP225 per pill.
Our expected stay at the hospital was originally for 2 weeks, but it got extended for another 2 weeks. At this point I cannot afford to pay for his bills on my own. Someone helped me with the initial hospital fees, and I've spent a total of PhP25,000 for partial payment. My projection is that it will be another PhP25,000+ As of this typing, he is now on day 27 at Animal Wellness Veterinary Hospital in Banilad, Cebu City. I can only hope he fully recovers so this will be the last of his ear infection.
After the hospital, he will be sent to a dog training camp but more for rehabilitation. Aside from the allergy, Goy has developed a bad habit of excessive scratching/nibbling as his way of coping up with stress. We first noticed this during the start of lockdown in March 2020, wherein our daily routines have frequently changed since then. Hopefully, being sent to the dog training camp will rehabilitate that behavior.
Bordogoy is a special dog. And I know he deserves more than what I can provide for him. Please help out with our running hospital bill, every peso donated will be appreciated. Thank you very much.
