Assist in specialists costs as well as any x-rays or possible MRI requests as well as surgery option

(UPDATE: Tucker's biopsy came back as a non-cacerous tumor and needs surgery as soon as possible. Vet stated he is at high Risk for seizures due to the tumor pressing against his arteries).....>> I rescued Tucker at the age of 2 when a family no longer wanted him and he has been such a blessing in my life..This fundraiser is for my 7 yr. old Basset Hound Son Tucker who has been having health problems..He was diagnosed with Diabetes 2 years ago and what followed was twice a day insulin injections and not longer after has developed cataracts... My visit was based on Tucker constantly gagging from drinking water and eating and its escalated into an everyday, all day ordeal and my baby is just not himself anymore...A x-ray was given by my vet Kristen Wellert at Ark Vet Hospital in Wooster, Ohio and was informed he had a curved windpipe and a slight tracheal collapse..A serious of medicines were prescribed for his nasal discharge and wheezing and none of the medication is helping Tucker, my vet recommends an MRI and unfortunately that costs around $1,000. I have exhausted resources of contacting Pet Organizations and Funds and so many of them have collapsed because of the economy or have strict guidelines..Tucker is my son and he has been an healing element after losing My Basset Son Jack to Lymphoma on May5th of this year...I can't lose Tucker and i am asking for financial assistance from anyone who can donate....A recent x-ray has shown something is pressing against his food pipe and a biopsy was taken to see if it is a tumor and i am still waiting on those results..Not knowing my options as far as surgery or its costs, this costs is based on internet research but i will keep all updated on those rates...Depending on the biopsy results my Vet stated she can no longer do anything for Tucker and wants to refer to a specialists and those in general are expensive..I say to all who reach out to me, i thank you from the bottom of my heart and i pray God will bless you ten fold..
