A cry for HELP !!!
A couple of weeks ago I though my Ilka was depressed. I split up from my boyfriend and I thought Ilka was missing him and his dog, they all got on well and got close too. As a few days passed I got convinced that had to be more than depression. Ilka was very lethargic and not eating well so I decided to take her to the vets. My night mare started..... It was a Saturday morning by the time they realise it was an emergency they kicked me out because they were about to close. I was sent to an out of hours vet 1800pounds bill for the weekend. On Monday I was sent back to my normal vets. After a few tests they were not sure what was going on with her but the biggest indication was at the moment that she had a Pyometra so on Tuesday she had an operation to be spayed. On Wednesday morning she was blind. I had to go back to the vets anyway to check out her operation and after a few more tests they told me they couldn't deal with her anymore because her case became too complicated so they referred her to a specialist. Her bill at this point added another 1200pouds. At that point they were suspecting of Meningitis. Mind you I did notice her eyes very red from day one and I did mention to all of them. I was told every single time not to worry about it. On Friday after consultation and many more tests it has been ruled out Meningitis or Cancer. The results identified an immune-mediated disease. The bill another 2000pounds so at this point 5000pounds all together. I am trying to make it short.... believe me. I have been crying every day desperate about how a dog that appeared so health and happy who is only 3y and 6m could be in this state. My heart and my finances are broken into million peaces. I don't know what to do. I don't qualify for any charity help because I am not on benefits and I am not in a low income. Mind you I am not in any high income either. Who ever took the time to read this long message please I need help, any suggestions???
