Jo is a disability support pensioner who had been in the hospital for 6 weeks and endured a 14-hour surgery to remove cancer from her body. After her money from her NDIS had all been used on her treatment and recovery, she was unable to afford the flea medication needed for her dog and best friend ‘Muffin’ a Maltese X Schitzu. Jo is without family support and poor little ‘Muffin’ had developed bad skin irritation from what the fleas had done to his sensitive skin. Jo asked for PMC to help her and even though it’s not what we normally do we knew what she had been through and wanted to assist her.
“Thank you once again for your help. It is a great relief to have someone so caring do something so helpful to me and my dog, he is my family in a time when I am not doing so well. It means the world to me and I am very humbled by your generosity and care for my family and my situation.” Jo said to the PMC team.
Exhausted by her surgery and other treatments the very thankful pensioner finally can at least relax knowing for now her 10-year-old boy will be no longer be distressed and itchy.
Pet Medical Crisis relies on public donations to assist pensioners and disadvantaged owners who cannot afford life-saving veterinary care.
