Stacey is a single mother of two young children who is now out of work thanks to COVID-19. Along with her other life challenges one of her children suffers autism and has large expenses that come with that.

Stacey believes that the best thing for her child is having their wonderful dog ‘Aria’ there to share support and love. Stacey has had 8 year old ‘Aria’ the Rottweiler girl since she was born and the family adores her.

When Stacey noticed that her loved dog was unwell she took her to our good friends at The Lort Smith to get a diagnosis and see what could be done. After the vets told Stacey that ‘Aria’ had plyometra due to not being de-sexed, she would need an operation to save her life.

The added expense for the treatment and the surgery would be beyond what Stacey could afford, however she knew how much ‘Aria’ means to the family and that she is a very necessary to their well being.

Aria was lucky to survive an infected uterus. PMC recommend desexing to save this problem.

PMC were contacted to help due to the families circumstances and we knew we could make the difference. “She’s our family! I met her when she was moments old and have loved her quirky cheekiness ever since.” Stacey told our team.

Lort Smith vets have since operated on the beautiful Rotti girl and we are told she is home and doing well as she recovers. Thanks to the Vet team for their help and all of you who donate or share our mission it all truly helps strengthen us and bring more help to those who most need it.

Gimpy is a 6-month old kitten from near Warnambool. His owner Katie a single mum of two doing it tough, noticed that his leg had lost it’s blood supply because the cats mum hadn’t removed the umbilical cord properly from the baby cat. It was around 12 hours later before anyone realised what had happened, by that stage the damage had been done. Without being able to afford to have her cat looked by a vet due to being out of work and unable to receive Centrelink payments, Katie was at a loss.

After trying her best to have the leg cared for it eventually came to the point where it would need to be taken off or the cat would soon need to be euthanized.

“Gimpy is a beautiful little boy, who follows me around the house and my kids tells me if I leave the house he meows at the window for me. There is no way we could have afforded to get Gimpy the help needed if it wasn’t for Pet Medical Crisis’s help, we are forever grateful.” Katie told team PMC so relieved after the surgery.

After getting PMC involved to manage the case, and thanks to the great work from the Lava st Vet Clinic Warrnambool, ‘Gimpy’ was finally able to have the threatening leg removed properly. ‘Gimpy’ survived the operation very well and is now is safe and sound back with the loving family, no doubt feeling much better having the painful leg taken. Thanks to the Lava st Veterinary crew for the work done and help given.

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



A 10yo ‘Shihtzu’ dog called Fizz Gig has been suffering badly from severe dental issues. His mum Samara tried desperately to save enough money to afford the surgery needed to help the little guy, but being a single mum on a pension it is almost impossible to pay for living expenses let alone costly bills to save her boy. Samara has two kids and one of the kids needs medical support, which also adds up quickly. Samara exhausted all other avenues of funding and did not received any relief from the Government that was promised due to Covid19 and is feeling very despondent about the situation.

After noticing her little boy wasn’t eating and seeming out of sorts she got him to her local vet at Bellarine Vet in Drysdale who diagnosed his teeth. After realising she didn’t have enough money saved she contacted us at PMC for help managing the case.

“He is our everything. Such an amazing loyal beautiful friendly gentle boy. We love him to the moon and back. My kids have no one but me and fizz gig! Please help us help him.” Samara wrote to PMC.

With the great help from the team at Bellarine Vet they were able to fix the dental problems the happy little boy had and much to relief of the family got him home safe and sound.Thanks to all involved we all wish for ‘Fizz Gig’ to go on for many more years to come.
