‘Cruiser’ is a 7-year-old pug who has had a tough trot. It was only a few months ago she had her eye removed due to a blood vessel popping then she suffered from life-threatening pancreatitis. But things went from bad to worse when Cruiser fractured her elbow very badly which meant sadly she needed to have it amputated. Owners Zoe and her partner both suffer from mental health issues and are on disability pensions. The thing that helps them most is having their lovely pets who mean the world to them and their health. Zoe says her kids, 4 and 10, adore both their little furry siblings.

Seeing how badly ‘Cruiser’ was suffering, Mum Zoe sourced various veterinary opinions and got her to the Animal Vet Maffra who discounted their costs to help save Cruiser’s life. Zoe heard about PMC via our Facebook connections and applied for help at www.petmedicalcrisis.com.au. PMC managed the case with Dr Mark at AVM and we donated our maximum to relieve the family’s crippling financial burden. After hearing over the phone that we could help to get her pup fixed up, Zoe broke down in tears of relief.

Little Cruiser is recovering well so far and the family is over the moon that she is ok and back with them. It’s cases like this where we see the undeniable difference pets make in the lives and mental health of humans, and especially to the people who suffer from different forms of illness.

‘Roxie’ was a birthday gift for Emma from Lalor, her favorite birthday gift ever. That is six years ago now and the Kelpie cross is still full of energy even though she only has three legs. Emma’s kids adore the bubbly girl especially her eldest boy Jake who would be lost without his furry sister. The mid-sized dog swears she’s a lap dog and always looks for a comfortable spot, often the nearest lap or ledge.

We don’t know what we would without Roxie we love her so much and she makes a world of difference to the family. She still crazy even on her three legs!” Laughed the relied Emma.

But then one day Emma noticed that ’Roxie’s’ face had started to swell rapidly and she was in a great deal of pain. Getting ‘Roxie’ to the vet as quickly as she could they soon realised that there was a huge issue with her teeth. Without all the funds needed for the surgery, the single parent was directed to PMC for assistance. PMC took management of the case and kicked in the rest of the money also. ‘Roxie’ is now safe and sound back with her team climbing from lap to lap once more.

A big thanks to the crew at Whittlesea vet practice for your great work.
