‘Willow’- The bushfires still hurting people and pets

Bridget is an aged pensioner who lives alone with her little girl ‘Willow’. It was only a year ago when the Mallacoota resident lost ‘Willow’s’ mother sadly due to being poisoned. As most us know the bushfires destroyed much of the area in Mallacoota and the surrounding areas, what we don’t see is how it has affected its residents and their cherished pets.

“I woke at 3 am the other morning to willow unable to breathe and I really think she needs the help now and I am not in a financial position to give that to her so that’s why I am asking for your help (PMC). I don’t know what I would do if anything happened to willow she is my baby.” Was the message we received at Pet Medical Crisis from a distraught Bridget.

Only a few months earlier Bridget had noticed a lovely story, thanks to Herald Sun , that showed another case Pet Medical Crisis had helped. Thankfully Bridget remembered our name and applied for help.

PMC took control of the case and managed it thanks to Dr. Justin and his team at Pambula veterinary. ‘Willow’ needed work done on her respiratory system along with some dental work to allow her breathing to return to normal. Right now ‘Willow’ is safe but she needs some crucial work in the next six months that will help her throat fully recover, which will be a huge expense. Please donate if you can via our website to help if you can afford it.

‘Willow’ and the lovely Bridget are doing well and very relieved to be together as they continue to rebuild their lives after the worst fires Australia has experienced. In what is a terribly trying time for us we need to remember people are doing it very tough especially in rural areas who were all but destroyed.

Pet Medical Crisis relies on public donations to assist pensioners and disadvantaged owners who cannot afford life-saving veterinary care.
