Kangaroo Vet and recently separated single mother of 3, Zarleeh let us know Batman was in trouble after his surgery!

6yo Tyannah had chosen Batman from a friend’s litter 4 years ago and they were best friends from the beginning. Throughout her ups and downs with ADHD, Tyannah has had the best medicine of all – cuddles with her Batman.

At home during a regular week, Batman plays with his rambunctious 1 and 2 year old human brother and sister… His one year old sister’s favourite sayings are “there’s Batman” and “where’s Batman”.

Batman is a very happy active cat, but one day they noticed that he wasn’t himself so rushed him to the vet who felt his belly and gave them devastating news that he had a blocked bladder.

Batman had to go straight to theatre and the cost of surgery was discounted to a very generous $500 dollars.

Being a single Mum creating a safe environment for her 2 ands 4 legged kids has made coming up with the money very hard. Providing medication and special food to prevent Batman blocking again was impossible.

Pet Medical Crisis donated $100 to provide medication and the right diet to ensure Batman has the best chance at a full recovery.

‘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.

Mum Carol visits her desperately ill boy in hospital

Mum Carol Watt from Kerang couldn’t give up on her boy Puss-Puss who saved her life 8 months ago when she felt suicidal. In financial crisis though she had nowhere else to turn.

350 mls of pus was drained from Puss-Puss’s chest cavity and with a $1,000 donation from PMC and another large single donation of $1,000 from one of our supporters, Carol and her 10 yo daughter were relieved of the financial burden and were able to get their loved boy home again to make all of their lives that much sweeter.

Pets bring untold mental health therapy – and securing that bond for owners in necessitous circumstances is what Pet Medical Crisis do best.

When single Mum Anna adopted 2 kittens from RSPCA everything was terrific. She had young children, security and the promise of prosperous days ahead.

Turns for the worse couldn’t have been more unexpected and when her Ally became unwell, she was devastated to not be able to afford her veterinary care.

Nurse Kim from Casey Vet Pakenham called on Pet Medical Crisis and after a significant discount on Waffle’s veterinary costs it was determined that she had ingested poison. With prompt hospitalisation and treatment her prognosis was good – but Anna simply couldn’t afford the cost.

Pet Medical Crisis donated $1,000 to give this sweet girl the chance to get over-the-line and home to her loving family.

Unfortunately, Waffles was becoming more and more unwell. Through her heartbreak, Anna had to choose to give her angel her eternal wings.

Our deepest sympathy and respect to this heartbroken family.

Circumstances have often taken a turn-for-the-worse for many of the pensioners we assist. Mum Leonie previously held high paying positions. With 4 children in her care who desperately wanted a puppy, she adopted an unwanted Shitzu Cavalier Spaniel when he was 10 weeks old.

Over time Leonie has succumbed to mental health issues. Baxter became her baby and she couldn’t be without him. “He is my only companion – my reason to get up and always by my side. He has the sweetest, most gentle personality.”

Baxter is 13 now and has pain from his teeth cavities and gum disease. He also has a growth on his back which he is starting to try to get at.

Leonie was offered a payment plan by a vet but she couldn’t come up with a deposit for half.

Pet Medical Crisis arranged for Baxter to be seen at Southern Animal Health and thanks to our donation he had his teeth cleaned, 5 removed and the nasty growth on his back removed.

Thanks to PMC, Baxter is back home by his loving Mum’s side.

Leonie said: “I am so grateful to have been able to get this done and as soon as I can, I will donate back.”

Shepparton resident Michael Hoye was given Riggy, a White Shepherd, almost 12 months ago but he was initially hesitant to accept the puppy because he knew dogs came with a lot of responsibility.

However, the pair instantly bonded and have been inseparable ever since.

‘‘Everywhere I go, he comes with me, he’s my baby boy,’’ Mr Hoye said.

Unfortunately, their special bond was nearly torn apart when Riggy was hit by a car in the early hours of last Saturday morning.

A distraught Mr Hoye rushed Riggy to the vet and discovered he had a haemorrhaged lung, dislocated hip, and a fractured shoulder blade.
