This is my dog Miya. He is the family dog who we love all so much with all our hearts. One day he started to scream, literally SCREAM in agony because he was in so much pain. He cried and cried nonstop and laid down because he could not move any further. We took him to the pet emergency where they believe he has Intervertebral Disk Disease, but we were advised to take him to his vet, all they gave us was pain medication and anti inflammatory medication. We took him to the vet where they did x-rays and physicals to see if he did in fact have IVD. Unfortunately, with all that done they were not able to find out if he does in fact have IVD.
They told us that even though the x-rays can be accurate, they cannot tell us everything. From what they saw the bones along his spine seems perfectly fine. The vet advised us to do an MRI for him. Which will further help us determine what is wrong with him, but it is roughly around $1,200-$1,500 plus possible fees, medications and perhaps other exams.
The daunting realization that you cannot afford this for your dog to find out what is wrong with him and help him from suffering and take away that suffering hits you. For now, since the vet knew we could not, said to keep him on pain meds because it seems like it is helping somewhat and could be hints that it may be something that is not too severe.
He has been taking his medication, but he keeps having episodes of pain, and now they are becoming so repetitive. He screams in agony and we cannot handle how much in pain he is. We cannot do anything for him, our hands are tied. I would show you a recording we took of him having these episodes (For vet purposes), but I am afraid it will be too painful to hear and watch.
We have had him for 5 years now, and we refuse to lose him, he is a family member and being a family member we want the best for him.
So please tumblr, I ask you to please donate whatever you can to help us determine what is wrong with him. Everything counts. Even if you cannot help, spreading this around like wildfire will help tremendously.
I am determined to not let this be unsuccessful and help him through this, because he cannot help himself.
Whatever you do to help, I thank you.
If you wish to donate the button will be located on my tumblr page (assholekyo.tumblr.com) right on the top.
Now, to give back I can offer you several things:
I voice act a little, still an amateur but if you wish to check out what I have done go to (assholekyo.tumblr.com/tagged/voice acting)
You can request what you would like me to voice act and I will try my best.
I can also write, I mostly write Dir en grey related stories. If you want smut, I can do that for you.
My sister can draw so you can request something by her as well. If you donate you can get one of those things, if you wish.
Once again, thank you for reading and help me help my dog.
