Aina is a mixed breed canine who was given to us for re-homing back in March 2017.
She was a very energentic pup who grew up loved and adored by those who see her. Oftentimes, because of her color, she is mistaken to be a police K9 much to our amusement.
January of this year, after her first birthday, we noticed that she became lethargic. No longer crying out when she see us coming home from work. The continuous declineof her health prompted us to take action.
We had been visiting various veterinarian and still, there was no improvement from her.
February 8, because of her inappetance, we decided to confine her at one of the clinics here in Proj. 4.
She was severely dehydrated that's why there was a need to insert an IV line. It was five days after that she was discharged from the clinic.
After a week of medication, there was still no improvement. We decided to have her checked for distemper in a clinic in Mandaluyong. Thankfully, the results were negative.
We waited not more than a week to have her check again at a clinic in Kalayaan Ave. It was there that we found out that she is suffering from a disease carried by Ehrlichia. Thankfully the antibiotics that were previously given to her was the same. She is now 2 weeks into her doxycycline medication.
Because of the length of her sickness, she developed a secondary infection, URI. The treatment prescribed to us was to continue nebulizing her every 6 hours.
However our main concern is the status of her kidneys. The results of her test bore a high number for both her Creatinine and Urea.
She was recommended to be confined and undergo dialysis but because of the cost of those two (10-12K for the first 24 hours of confinement and another 3-4K for the succeeding days, excluding dialysis fee) plus the medication, we opted to bring her home.
We are asking for your help for the treatment and medication of our dear, beloved Aina. She is still very young and seeing her everyday not having the energy of simply getting up breaks our heart. Any amount of donation will surely go a long way.
We promise to always keep you updated regarding her health.
Thank you very much.
