I am not one to ask for help (ever) but in this very difficult time, I am forced to. If you can help, even a little, it would help greatly.

Moe came to us a year ago as a rescue. He is the sweetest, calmest and quietest dog a person can own. Last Thursday evening Moe became sick and refused to eat. I stayed up with him all night as he was sick. We knew he threw up a sock earlier, but figured that was it and in a day he would be back to 'normal'. He was not. I ended up taking Moe to the vets Saturday morning, who then had me go to the Vet Hospital for xrays. Well, an obstruction showed up on the xrays and he was kept in the hospital for observation. By Sunday, it was determined he needed to have surgery to have the obstruction removed. They were able to push the obstruction out of the small intestines to the colon where it will pass, but the small intestine was badly bruised and the portion where the obstruction set, had to be removed. Monday, Moe is still not eating and still in the hospital. We want the best for him and want him to recover (and esp, we want him to eat). The doc will not release him until she is sure he is stable and eating on his own. The costs are starting to go beyond what we can afford. We do have CareCredit to help pay the bill, but unfortunately due to another one of our dogs developing eye issues in the last six months (we have 5 dogs total in our family), we were only able to increase our limit on the CareCredit to cover 90% of the bill for Moe. We would really appreciate any help you can offer to cover the cost of this unexpected surgery. As pet parents we sacrafice so much to make sure they are taken care of, even if we have to go without so they can have.

05/08/2012 Update: Surgeon just called this morning and said Moe started eating on his own! :) After 3 1/2 days in the hospital, he is coming home today! He still has a long road on recovery, and us parents in covering the hospital bill. Moe & I truly are greatful to those who have donated to help!! May God Bless all of you, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
