Jetta seizured this morning and died shortly after. I will leave this open for 2 more days if anyone wants to help me w/the remaining cost.


Miss Jetta Ludwig died at 5:30AM this morning. I love her deeply, and if you would have asked me 5 years ago if I could get so attached to an animal......I would have said: "no way, I love dogs, but there just dogs, not kids." Jetta was different........

My little dog Jetta was hit by a car. She was hit in the head. The person who hit her, did not stop. she was rushed to the Animal Emergency Clinic, in Tacoma Wa.

Jetta is the most wonderful dog, and has brought happiness to many people in her life. She started out as a companion to an elderly woman in Vancouver WA, who died around the end of 2004/2005. My close friend Jetta's mom; Shelly was taking care of her, because the family could not. So Up to Gig Harbor she came. At the time, I was taking care of my Alzheimer’s grandmother. Jetta immediately took to her, and Jetta to grammy. So she became a member of our family. In March of 2009, my grandmother passed away, and it has been just Jetta and me (and my son on weekends and frequent visits from Shelly). I have been around dogs my whole life (taken in strays and abused animals). Jetta has been the most wonderful dog I have ever been around. I have never been so attached to an animal before. I have loved all my dogs, but she is very special.
I have already payed 3,000.00 and the cost continues. I didn't make my house payment, or pay any of my other bills. I have run low on money, and the clinic will stop treatment if I can't pay on a daily basis. I will be putting my 1971 VW Single cabTruck up on craigslist.org and thesamba.com tonight to raise money.

She needs help.....please. She did not deserve this to happen to her, and deserves a chance.

She was showing good progress, until yesterday (sunday, 9/19/10). All her function are well except her sodium levels started to climb yesterday to a dangerous level. The docs at the vet clinic have been so good to her, and have even sought out the help of specialists and even conferred with some human docs to find out what can be done. This morning there was some slight improvement to her sodium levels. The consensus is that the trauma to her brain has caused the function that regulates the removal of sodium from the body to be damaged. This started to improve this morning which made the docs hopeful. She will need to be in the hospital for another 2-5 days during the healing process to monitor the sodium levels every 4 hours during the recovery process to see if this function will come back. Her swelling is down, her eyes are open, blood pressure and all other functions are doing well.

Jetta is a wonderful dog, who did not deserve this. She deserves at least a chance. She is currently being cared for and being treated at:

Animal Emergency Clinic
5608 Durango St
Tacoma, WA. 98409
(253) 474-0791

Any help will be so much appreciated. I am almost out of money, and they will stop treatment if payment can't be made to continue, Pleas help if you can. She is a wonderful little girl, and I love her like a child. She really deserves a chance, she is a special dog
