This is the Remmi Griffith fund. Any funds received will be used for Remmi's medical expenses...

UPDATE 3/26/2012 ..We took my sweet little 2 1/2 yr old little pug Remmi to a veterinary college in Blacksburg Virginia last week. She had a couple of seizures over the summer and had we had been told she had a liver shunt. Her symptoms were controlled with a strict diet and daily medication. Last week the seizures came back again.She had 6 seizures on Friday and we rushed her to her vet. We were told the liver shunt was progressing and she would die without surgery. I called all of the specialists (6) in the area and was quoted a price of $4000- $8000. We have pet insurance for Remmi but because a liver shunt is a hereditary condition they would not pay anything. We found a veterinary college that would do the surgery for $2500. We drove her 5 hrs to the veterinary college. After many diagnostic tests we were told that Remmi does not have a liver shunt, but pug encephalitis which is also hereditary and is fatal. We decided to bring Remmi home and keep her comfortable and enjoy the time we have left with her. She is truly enjoying eating all of the foods that she has been deprived of the last few months since she is not on a diet anymore.

We want to thank everyone who has donated for being so generous. We still have vet bills for her diagnostic tests totalling over $1500 in addition to the bill from her regular vet where she stayed for a week while they tried to get her seizures under control.

We are having a yard sale to help with these expenses on March 31,2012 from 9am -1pm..we have a lot of stuff that might interest you so please come..or if you would like to donate www.giveforward.com/remmisfund
