Gentle Kelpie X Abbey from Gippsland is the adored 6yo sweetheart of a family of 4. Mum and Dad and 2 teenagers. It’s been a tough year with Dad having 2 health issues that left the family’s income depleted.
When Abbey developed an immune-mediated haemolytic anaemia she was treated with medication which couldn’t control the disease. With her health deteriorating before their eyes the family’s hearts were breaking – feeling helpless to save their darling girl.
Mum Sandra called Dr Chris to prepare to say a final farewell to their girl.
Dr Chris from Maffra Vet contacted Pet Medical Crisis this evening as a last resort to save Abbey’s life. He discounted the cost of her care, the family used their last $300 and Pet Medical Crisis donated their maximum of $1,000 – enough to give this sweet girl a life-saving blood transfusion tonight with another $200 – probably to go on a payment plan.
Abbey showed some good signs of improvement and was able to eat and drink for the first time in days the next morning. She has gone home and is cured – gradually getting her strength back and centre of her family’s loving care again.
Pet Medical Crisis relies on public donations to assist pensioners and disadvantaged owners who cannot afford life-saving veterinary care.
