David and Helen adopted ‘Emme’ when she was nearly one year old. The seniors love her dearly, and until very recently ‘Emme’ has not been in great health.
David noticed that his dog had a tick attached to her belly that he was able to remove with alcohol, ticks are common in the area they live near Maffra. Shortly after the tick removal ‘Emme’ seemed to be unwell, not eating, lethargic and disinterested. Concerned for the dog’s health, and also worrying that the alcohol used to remove the tick may have hurt his best friend, David got ‘Emme’ to the vet nearby. The first vet involved was unable to help David and Helen and the enormous cost was impossible to fathom.
David and Helen searched for another vet hopeful that they could be better served, and at the Animal Clinic Maffra they were indeed. The clinic contacted PMC and informed us of the details and we were able to manage by helping the kind elderly couple.
“‘Emme’ is such a beautiful loving dog, we don’t know what we would do without her. When the other vets said she may need to be put down we were heartbroken. We are so relived to have her home and safe. Thank you all so much.” David said after he knew she was going to be ok, he even had a beer which is very uncommon.
Without the help of their family who are caring for a young child fighting cancer, David and Helen would have most likely had to euthanise this loving animal. The vets at Maffra did a great job in caring for ‘Emme’ diagnosing her with severe dental issues and rectifying without having to extract! Incredible work guys. Thanks for everyone’s support over this time and we welcome all and any help offered.
