10yo Georgie has it all and we wanted to make sure she didn’t lose her life…. or leg unnecessarily. On Monday while sunning herself at home in Maldon, a gumtree fell, hitting her and breaking her femur. As you can see on the Xray it’s a very clean break and could be fixed but this unexpected expense tipped over the family’s finances. Mortgaged, with Centrelink loan and trying to pay for utilities, school needs, etc – Georgie faced being euthanised.
Pet Medical Crisis donated $1,000 for surgery but the family couldn’t find enough to save her leg and had no way of getting her to Melbourne for other options and so opted for an amputation yesterday.
Enter Southern Animal Health’s Dr. Marcus Hayes who offered to discount surgery by $1,400 to save her leg. The family was ecstatic at the thought of Georgie being given this chance and so Jennifer from PMC drove to Castlemaine yesterday to bring Georgie to Southern Animal Health. Vegas from PMC did the last leg (sorry for the pun!) from Windsor to Cheltenham at 6:30 last night.
“Thank you for getting Georgie safely to Melbourne this afternoon for treatment” said soon to be 3rd time Mum Brenda.
Georgie has recovered now.
Love from all your friends at PMC xxxxooooxxxx
