Dieter's Valley Fever Treatment

Dieter's Valley Fever Treatment

From Elizabeth Andrews

We are now almost certain it's valley fever and xrays confirmed no broken bones. For is weight, treatment is expensive. Now bloodwork is needed and treatment and fixed income is not enough to pay our bills and vet.

Update #4

22 days ago

Dieter is finally responding to medication and confinement. He isn't limping as bad and has more energy! His blood results came back and there was no indication of valley fever however, they did detect inflammation in his blood. There is now an assumption that he did some sort of soft tissue injury instead of valley fever so we have to keep him on medicine and restrict exercise for the next few weeks. They might retest in 3 weeks to see if the hemoglobin/inflammation has reduced and maybe a urinalysis. So we will keep the campaign open in case there are any more expenses. But this amount has successfully paid for all expenses up to this point. Thank you so much for helping us achieve this goal!

More Info

We took him to the vet 1/22, xrays were done, and he was given Gabapentin and Carprovet. The xray came back negative for broken bones, and Valley fever lesions. However, they can't rule it out till we do bloodwork on Monday. Unfortunately, it's over 300 dollars up front for bloodwork alone without the cost of treatment. We also were lucky enough to have up front help with the vet and xrays yesterday but I'd like to pay it back. We do not have anything saved because the last few months have been very difficult financially. I've never been in this much of a bind since I started working in high school. Anything helps.

I took our old boy to the vet again today. He had bloodwork done for CBC, organ function, desert diseases and valley fever. Recieved a donation last night that covered all 300 plus dollars and now we wait he is resting at home.

Update #2

Dieter is on the right Schatze on the left. I can't imagine splitting them up. Please send help. I need my babies to be together and healthy, they have been together since six weeks old. But if I can't gather this money then I'm gonna have to surrender him to someone who can. And I don't think I can handle that failure.
