This is the Lucky You Veterinary Expense Fund. All funds will be applied to the diagnosis and treatment of Lucky's neurological dysfunction.

Lucky is a 10 month old rescue Dalmatian that our family adopted a week ago. Lucky suffers from neurological dysfunction that affects his breathing, coordination, and muscle function. Lucky is unable to run and play like many other dogs, and becomes very easily short of breath with extended periods of hyperventilation and loud wheezing indicative of upper airway occlusion caused by inflammation or hypertrophy of organs in upper respiratory system.

We are seeking a diagnosis and exploring treatment options with Dr. Levine at the Texas A&M Small Animal Hospital. While Dr. Levine and his staff, as well as the resources available at the the clinic, are among the top in the nation in their field, their services are not cheap.

Due to the hereditary nature of this condition, Lucky is ineligible for traditional financing options (like pet insurance) for diagnostic tools/visits and treatment (surgical and otherwise) .
This is where you come in! We are asking for donations to help cover the expenses of his diagnostic procedures and any treatment they decide to pursue. Donations will strictly be applied to defraying the expense of medical diagnostic and therapeutic procedures of his SPECIFIC NEUROLOGICAL CONDITION, and will not be used to pay for regular check ups, castration procedure, etc.

We would not normally take on such a large emotional and financial investment, however we are confident that under our care Lucky will be provided with a much higher quality of life than what would be available to him elsewhere. We believe that the financial commitment we are making in choosing to treat this condition is in the best interest of our newest family member and will truly make his life not only longer, but happier as well!
