Scotty is a very energetic and playful puppie by nature, but this has changed as of late. He is no longer willing to chase his tennis ball or play with his stuffed toys. After a trip to his vet, we were told that Scotty is experiencing trouble with his spinal cord. The vet suggested that we go see a neurologist, so we did. We were again told that Scotty does in fact has a slipped disk in his spine. The slipped disk is resulting in Scottys inability to walk. In the matter of a month Scotty went downhill quickly, to the point where he can barely hold himself up. Because of this, he is strictly bound to his cage in an effort to curb any further injury. Finally, after a meeting with the neurologist, we were left with only one option...to have an MRI done so surgery can be preformed to fix his spine and free up the nerves that are being disrupted. Unfortunately this comes with a cost that is unaffordable. The total cost of the MRI, surgery and hospital fees comes to around 6500.-%b4%80. Unfortunately we can not afford such a hughe bill in a single lump sum. Scotty will not be approved by any pet insurance because of this. We are not expecting a hand-out, we are just hoping for some help because a monetary quantity cannot be put on the quality of life. Any and all donations would be greatly appreciated, not only by us but by Scotty as well.
