Hello All. My name is Amanda. Over the weekend I took my loveable old weanie dog to a camping event in Bonney Lake Washington. For those of you who were there you'll remember him as the long nosed white faced pooch who managed to find his way into the middle of everything despite my best efforts to keep him under the warm blankets. While there he managed to find some yummy bacon grease covered gravel and proceeded to eat every last piece. 

This Fundraiser is to help pay for the lifesaving surgery to remove over a pound of gravel from his stomach before it kills him.

The original exam and xrays were estimated at $250. 

The estimate for the surgery is just under $1500 plus medications for post op.

Help keep this old sea dog around for another few years and save his human parents from having to make a horrible choice due to lack of finances.  

 

UPDATE

Yes, around noon on Wednesday I was forced to increase the amount needed. Oscar is not yet stable and needs additional medications. We are pushing the two grand mark already and that does not include any aditional services needed to stabilize him or the pain meds/aftercare needed to take home with him should he get to come home at all. The expense is well beyond our reach at this point and again we are at a loss for what to do. We just want our baby home happy and healthy.

Hello All, I wanted to post another update, Oscar is home and doing well. He has decided that while canned dog food isn't his thing that when mixed with water to make a gravy its not so bad. Pills though.. thats a whole nother story. The 7 pills a day. . . . .

Oscar still needs constant supervision but the vet felt he was stable enough to spend the night under the watchful eye of his Momma. He goes back tomorrow for more treatment but at least for tonight We get to have him where he belongs. Thank you so much to everyone

We got word from the vet that Oscar is out of surgery and recovering slowly. He is being held for observation for the next few hours at least. While the stress of getting the operation taken care of is out of the way and I am pacing the floors a. . . . .

After a sleepless night of keeping watch over Oscar he was returned to the vet this morning at 8am to be prepared for surgery. The vet was so impressed by the responses of our supporters so far they pushed up his surgery despite the lack up funds. You guys are. . . . .

  • We love wiener dogs!! But, boy do they eat some dumb things!! I once had one eat several pounds of English Ivy, which is toxic, of course!! She pulled through, and we wish the same for Mr. Oscar!!
