Friends of Stella
Thanks for reading Friends of Stella...
Stella is our 2-year old Golden Retriever puppy who recently had surgery to correct elbow dysplasia and was prescribed an NSAID to help with the inflammation.
After 10-days on the medicine, she developed a perforation in her stomach and intestines and went from loving puppy to septic shock.
3 surgeries later and a week (and counting) in the hospital - her survival rate has gone from 25% to 75% and we're all hoping she pulls through.
However, there is still a long road ahead of us made up of several plasma transfusions and expensive albumin treatments. We've put in almost $20,000 in personal savings, but the bills are growing by the day.
Many of our friends offered to help and suggested we set up this site, where friends / family / dog-lovers could pitch in to help Stella. If you could even just pitch in the cost of a coffee, we're confident it will help get her back to her loving family...
