Meet Paris Bartal from Dingley whose single Mum Lisa describes:
“Paris is the heart of our family – waiting by the door when we arrive home from school or work, wherever we go she follows without question. She has taught our friend’s children to respect but not be afraid of dogs. She is loyal affectionate and our beautiful girl.”
Paris was in good health but one day she came to Lisa’s room at 2am wheezing, struggling to breathe and unsettled.
With the help of her son, Lisa got Paris into the car and took her to Southern Animal Health in Cheltenham. She was discovered to have laryngeal paresis and without treatment could suffocate.
The family of 3 kids, Lisa and her mother who is on the aged pension, were in financial difficulties and the option of laryngeal tie-back surgery was beyond their reach. Steroids helped a little but gave just temporary relief. It is now either surgery or euthanasia.
“We want to do everything we can for our Paris. She has always been and still is an awesome dog. But we can’t go ahead without Pet Medical Crisis’s assistance.”
Pet Medical Crisis’s donation enabled her to have laryngeal tie-back surgery at Southern Animal Health and initial signs were that she was able to breathe a lot easier.
The family was delighted to take her home for what would be very precious time together. Unfortunately, she was unable to stop vomiting and had respiratory issues so they sadly took her home yesterday for a final night with her adoring family.
Paris was given her eternal wings the next day at Southern Animal Health surrounded by her loving family.
Our sincere and heartfelt condolences Lisa and family.
