I am asking my friends and family to please help help Toasty walk again. She needs a life altering back surgery that will cost $5500.

First of all I want to thank everyone for even reading my request. As all of you know I am very proud person and I have a very hard time asking for help. But it has come to a time in my life that I need to ask for everyone's love and support to help me pay for Toasty's vet bills.

As all of you know I do not have any kids so my dogs are my children. Toasty is my first furbaby and she means the world to me. As of recent events I no longer have a job and I am lucky enough to have insurance for her. But I have to pay all up front costs and hope to be partially reimbursed by the insurance. So far I have already paid $3250 and within in the next few days I will need to pay at least another $3600.

Toasty's Story: Toasty started having issues on October 18th. I wasn't sure what it was but I brought her into the emergency vet that night and spent 3 long hours waiting to find what was troubling my baby. She ended up having an issue with her back. She has narrowing in spine and they felt a disc maybe slipping. But at that point she was ok... only pain meds and rest was needed. But yesterday she took a horrible turn for the worst. I picked my baby up and took her outside. I sat her down and she could barely use her back legs. The vet warned me this was a slight chance and if it happened to bring her back right away. I grabbed my jacket, my credit card and took her straight back to the emergency vet. From there she went down hill fast. By the time we were seen she had no function left in her back legs and she was whimpering in pain. The vet took her straight back for a shot of pain meds and told us we needed to go to specialist right away. I packed her up again and we rushed off to Summit Veterinary Referral Center. We arrived there they rushed her back and within in minutes I was having a consult. This is where they confirmed that my baby will need an MRI, another consult with a neurologist and back surgery. They state that she has a really high chance of recovering and living a normal life. So, without hesitation I am now maxing out every credit card I have and spending what little savings I have to bring her home healthy.

So, I am hoping that my friends and family may see it in hearts and wallets to please help us out in our time need. Even a dollar will help. Thank you so much!
