The family and friends of Timothy are uniting to raise money for a lifesaving surgical procedure for his pet Popeye. Can you help us?

Popeye is a sweet, loving,tiny 9 month old Miniature Pincher. He was thought to have mesoesophagus when he started showing signs of regurgitating his food at about two weeks of age.
His owners researched this condition and discussed options with our family vet, Dr Comeaux. We decided to give him all we could to make him comfortable and see what happens. We fed Popeye in an upright position, kept him up for 30 minutes after meals,gave him his meals in small portions and watched him closely. He seemed to get better.In a month he was gaining weight! He was happy and playful. We thought we had made it through the ordeal.
Every now and then he might vomit a bit, but not more than once a month.
Well Saturday he started vomiting. I thought it was just his regular once a month type issue. Well he kept this up all day. He got worse. I brought him to the emergency vet. The x-rays revealed something we had no idea was present..... he had a hernia. His stomach was going up into his chest cavity. They gave him IV's and anti-nausea meds. But this is not enough. Its serious .He needs to have surgery to attach the stomach so that it will not move again. If we do not do this he will not make it. This would cost between $1500 - $2000. Any funds raised will go directly to our veternarian at Riverside. Can you help us help Popeye? My little boy lost a Min Pin 1 1/2 years ago in a vicious dog attack. He was 9 months old as well. Popeye seemed to ease the pain of losing Bentley. This is devastating to him. Please consider helping us. Thank you.
