This is Beatrice.
She's a 4 1/2 lb. Pomeranian and she's about 7 years old. She had a rough first 4 years of her life being mistreated by a breeder until she was rescued by an agency. I adopted her October 31, 2010. She was named Beatrice, which means "bringer of joy," because she delights everyone she meets with her sweetness.
Beatrice needs your help.
She was found to have a severe bacterial infection in her mouth and needed 8 teeth extracted, testing, and medications. She has recovered from the surgery and the inside of her mouth is now fine, but the testing continues to determine what is going on with her health. Beatrice has scabbing, irritated skin around the outside of her mouth, eye, vulva, belly, and paws that has worsened each week. We still don't know if it is an autoimmune issue or a bacterial infection. By the instruction of a vet dermatologist, she is currently taking a new antibiotic and steroids. She needs to get another blood test and be seen by an internal medicine specialist.
At this point, the cost of her mouth wash, antibiotics, blood work, hospitalization, pre-op screening, anesthesia, extractions, pain killers, biopsies, yeast infection medication, examinations, more antibiotics, and steroids so far: $2,706
This amount is way beyond my finances. I just lost two of my part-time jobs. I am a graduate student. I have no savings. I can't afford this on my own.
