Circumstances have often taken a turn-for-the-worse for many of the pensioners we assist. Mum Leonie previously held high paying positions. With 4 children in her care who desperately wanted a puppy, she adopted an unwanted Shitzu Cavalier Spaniel when he was 10 weeks old.
Over time Leonie has succumbed to mental health issues. Baxter became her baby and she couldn’t be without him. “He is my only companion – my reason to get up and always by my side. He has the sweetest, most gentle personality.”
Baxter is 13 now and has pain from his teeth cavities and gum disease. He also has a growth on his back which he is starting to try to get at.
Leonie was offered a payment plan by a vet but she couldn’t come up with a deposit for half.
Pet Medical Crisis arranged for Baxter to be seen at Southern Animal Health and thanks to our donation he had his teeth cleaned, 5 removed and the nasty growth on his back removed.
Thanks to PMC, Baxter is back home by his loving Mum’s side.
Leonie said: “I am so grateful to have been able to get this done and as soon as I can, I will donate back.”
Pet Medical Crisis relies on public donations to assist pensioners and disadvantaged owners who cannot afford life-saving veterinary care.
