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.

Meet 9 mo Smokey pictured here before what would be the most tragic of circumstances.

Smokey’s young Mum Jennifer was living with her family in Langwarrin. The family took in a boarder who set fire to the house in his room.

The house burnt down and during the fire little Smokey tragically received burns to his paws, ears and back.

Having lost everything Jennifer couldn’t afford the cost of veterinary care but today realised little Smokey desperately needed help. Carrum Downs Vet contacted Pet Medical Crisis to see if we could support this little guy for his Mum. Smokey has 3rd degree burns to all 4 paws and multiple lacerations and burns.

With a $900 donation from Pet Medical Crisis, Smokey had his wounds cleaned under anaesthetic and silvadine burn cream applied to his paws and wounds. Smokey made a full recovery thanks to PMC.

You’ve gotta love a smart dog! When you adopt a dog and it becomes an assistance dog without you even knowing it was going to be…. They adopted a dog from Gumtree last year who was supposed to be euthanised if not
rehomed asap.  Alana Fox drove over and took Jax – Border Collie X Labrador.  

They got him home and he was acting unusually – running between the daughter’s room and the Mother’s.  They thought they’d made a mistake getting him and when Alana went to see what he was doing she found her daughter was having a panic attack and the dog was trying to alert her.  Not bad for day 1!
 
From then on he has kept the daughter calm, always positions himself to be beside her and alerts her Mother if there is a concern. Alana then had an accident – fell and fractured her ankle.  Multiple surgeries failed and she had to have a below-knee amputation last year.  The fibula end is causing problems so she can’t get a prosthesis fitted and may need to return to theatre to have it trimmed.  She was placed on DSP, had 1/2 price taxis, etc but had to borrow from both daughters to pay living expenses, etc. She was maxed out and in debt which includes the consultation for Jax at Sandown Vet.

Jax needed urgent dental surgery which the family was never going to be able to afford so in we stepped. PMC to the rescue.

Thanks to Southern Animal Health and volunteer driver Michelle Layet who drove to pick them up and drop them home.
