Mayla and I need help !

Please Help Mayla!

Mayla was diagnosed with Lyme Disease in March of this year (2012) and while at that time she had no symptoms she was administered a heavy dose of antibiotics for 28 days. Three days ago (July 14th) she became very ill and ran a dangerously high fever. She became weak very rapidly and stopped eating. We made a trip to the emergency clinic late Monday night because she became incontinent and was urinating blood. Her gums had also turned white. It was discovered that Mayla has Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia (IMHA). This disease causes the immune system to fight and destroy the bodies red blood cells, which can be brought on by Lyme disease. It's very scary because IMHA can affect dogs very quickly and can prove fatal in a matter of days. Mayla stayed the night at the emergency clinic and received a blood transfusion to help build her depleted red blood cells.

Mayla and I need your help ! She is in critical condition and must be monitored very closely. Medications, vet visits /treatments, gas to go back and forth to vets are adding up and very expensive.

Mayla is my beautiful friend and working companion at the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, she loves her job as much as I do. I adopted her almost two years ago from the ASPCA where she was rescued from a hoarding case. When Mayla was found she was very thin, full of parasites and had six puppies...all that and was nearly 10 years old ! She and I bonded immediately. Wherever I am she is always by my side. We are a team and I love her with all my heart. If you've ever met her I'm certain you know how amazing she is.
Whatever you can do to help is greatly appreciated.

Love always

dawnell and mayla
