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.

Pet Medial Crisis is a registered not-for-profit charity which helps pensioners with the cost of unexpected vet bills.

With Puss Puss, a single donation was re-dedicated to the case from unused fundraising for another pet whose owners were no longer in need. The charity keeps donors updated if they make a donation that is no longer needed to enable a refund, to be rededicated or kept with the charity for another case.

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.

Shepparton resident Michael Hoye was given Riggy, a White Shepherd, almost 12 months ago but he was initially hesitant to accept the puppy because he knew dogs came with a lot of responsibility.

However, the pair instantly bonded and have been inseparable ever since.

‘‘Everywhere I go, he comes with me, he’s my baby boy,’’ Mr Hoye said.

Unfortunately, their special bond was nearly torn apart when Riggy was hit by a car in the early hours of last Saturday morning.

A distraught Mr Hoye rushed Riggy to the vet and discovered he had a haemorrhaged lung, dislocated hip, and a fractured shoulder blade.

Being in between work and on a Newstart pension, Mr Hoye didn’t know how he would afford his best friend’s life-saving surgery.

However, the charity Pet Medical Crisis heard about his dilemma and stepped in to give Riggy a lifeline.

Pet Medial Crisis is a registered not-for-profit charity which helps pensioners with the cost of unexpected vet bills.

It raises money through fundraisers but also has a generous Facebook community which regularly donates to heart-breaking stories.

Charity founder and director Jennifer Hunt said Riggy and Mr Hoye’s story was felt hard by her community and had since raised nearly $7000 to help fund the vet bill.

‘‘We help people whose animals are integral to individuals’ mental health,’’ Ms Hunt said.

She said the charity was founded for people like Mr Hoye who relied on the mental, physical and social benefits that came with pet ownership.

Mr Hoye said he was shocked to hear the amount of money people had donated. ‘‘It made me cry, people are so kind,’’ he said.

Although the accident has been devastating for Mr Hoye, it has given him a new outlook on the way he sees people, communities and his own life.

‘‘I wouldn’t have thought there were so many giving people out there,’’ he said. ‘‘It inspires me to go out and help the community and do more good for other people.’’

Riggy has been supported through Pet Medical Crisis donations through 2 major surgeries. He is expected to make a full recovery.

Scout from the Mornington Peninsula has been her girl Rory’s no. 1 assistance for the past 6 years. Rory is on a DSP for anxiety and was devastated when her darling girl developed a blockage of her ureter – feeding from the kidney to her bladder.

Rory and her family did all they could to find the funds to save Scout. Without our $1,000 assistance Scout would not have been able to have surgery. At the delicate operation Dr Arthur House was able to insert a Subcutaneous Ureteral Bypass (SUB) to maintain the flow of urine from the kidney to the bladder.

Scout looked to be making a good postoperative recovery until sadly 2 days postoperatively she went into renal failure and tragically Scout had to be given her eternal wings.

Pet Medical Crisis send our deepest sympathy to Rory and her family who did everything possible for their sweetest girl.

Rest In Peace dear Scout. Your girl is still talking to you and we know you are listening.
