We are working to raise funds for non-routine veterinary care for our dog Jazzy, who needs medical treatment for spinal surgery.

On Thursday march 22, 2012 jazzy went from being a healthy,very active dog to a much less active dog. She was outside doing what she does best running and playing, when all of a sudden she started yelping and dragging her leg. Thankfully we were able to get her to the vet for an emergency visit shortly after it happened. We however was not prepared for what we were about to find out. Her vet told us that she had slipped a disk in her back and had suffered nerve damage which has left her leg paralyzed. He gave her some medication and told us if she was goin to regain control it would take place in 24-84 hrs, if not we are left with 3 options:1-amputate her leg 2-spinal surgery (that will run $3,000-$4,000) or 3-have her put to sleep. We do not have insurance for her or the money for either option and having her put down is just out of the question. Jazzy is only 3yrs old and is loved dearly by us and our 3boys. my 2 youngest are pretty much her boys:). Everyone would be lost without her. We take her back to the vet in a few days since she is not making any progress at all, at which time we will more then likely get the referral to the hospital that will preform the surgery when we can afford to do so. I dont want to put it off for to long in fear that things will get worse. It was a freak accident and i dont want her (or our boys) to suffer in anyway for something as unexpected as this.

If anyone is able to make a donation of any size, we would be very grateful.

Thanks so much for reading.
