This is the fund used to raise money for a life saving surgery for our beloved dog, Ginger.

Last night our dog, Ginger was acting like she had to throw up. We took her outside and she then began to throw up a very small amount and acting like she was choking. Her tongue went from pink to purple/blue in color. We rushed her to the emergency vets and they rushed her to the back and had to put a breathing tube down her throat and sedate her to get her to calm down. After a little while they took the tube out and she was breathing on her own and all through the night she was breathing on her own. We went to pick her up this morning and she was so excited to see us but as soon as we made it out the door she started the breathing like she was doing yesterday. We took her back inside the emergency vets office and they sedated her and we had to take her to our regular vets office. They're letting her rest with light sedation and checking her out further. I didn't even have the money for emergency vets last night and it was almost 500 dollars, I had to borrow it from someone and they have no more money at all to help with. I'm just a teacher's aide at a school so I make hardly any money a month. The vet that she is at right now is going to work with us on the bill there, but they said she may have a condition called Laryngeal Paralysis. Which is where part of her throat doesn't open like it should when dogs breathe. This means she basically suffocates. The only place that does this surgery near me is Virginia Tech. If she gets this diagnosis today her surgery will be up to $2300 and they will do payment arrangements BUT they require a deposit of $650 dollars up front. Ginger is our baby and we love her to death. She just turned 13 on March 7th and she's always been as healthy as could be, no health problems at all. Every time we take her for walks people think she's only 2 years old by the way she acts, she doesn't even act 13. Please from the bottom of my daughter and I's heart if anyone could help save our baby, Ginger. :(
