‘Darcy’ a 12-year-old Staffy loves two things the most in this world. He loves his family that consists of his Mum who adopted him 12 years ago, and his sister who is a 2-year-old toddler named Indy. And the second thing he loves is his KONG toy, which he carries everywhere he goes only dropping to eat or drink. It was his trusty KONG toy that made mum Shareen notice ‘Darcy’ was unwell when he wasn’t carrying it in his mouth and seemed out of breath and seemed to be swelling before her eyes.
Darcy had a cardiac effusion (fluid around the heart) and without treatment would not survive. PMC was contacted and ask to help and we donated to Wandin vet to get the friendly boy over the line.
“Darcy is a much-loved family member and best friend to me and my little two-year-old Indy. He has been by my side for over 12 years and has helped me thru a lot of life’s ups and downs. He has always been the man of the house … he means more to us than anything in the world, he is apart of me like a shadow at my feet. Being a single mum we have used up our entire savings trying to help him, now those funds have diminished the lovely people at Pet Medical Crisis have been our angels in this emotionally hard time … we cannot thank them enough for helping us and supporting us through this difficult time .”
‘Darcy’ has made a good recovery and he gets all the cuddles he deserves from his adoring family.
Pet Medical Crisis relies on public donations to assist pensioners and disadvantaged owners who cannot afford life-saving veterinary care.
