‘Maya’ is a 13-year-old kitty that loves to laze in the sun with his elderly pensioner Mum Tania. Tania has owned ‘Maya’ for virtually his entire life, the soft-natured cat is loyal, quiet and never far from his Mum.

“We just about live out in the garden, he snoozes in the sun most days. If I sit in the lounge he always comes over and tucks in beside me for cuddles, he is always there. He is such good company for me as I am on my own and a constant source of love for me so he really is my best mate and yes he is spoilt….why not.”

Three years ago when ‘Maya’ had really bad pain in his teeth and gums Tania was unable to afford the costs, and being unaware of Pet Medical Crisis meant that she was unable to get the treatment needed. Thanks to the kind nature of Vet Dr.Chris Gallagher from Hallam Park Animal Hospital he sent the application for the cat’s procedure to us at PMC, and it’s been our pleasure to manage the case and donate to cover the costs. Tania whose sister sadly passed away without a will now look forward to leaving the inheritance to help more humans and animals at PMC- stay tuned to learn more about our bequest program in the New Year.

‘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.

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.

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.

I feel I’ve tried everything that’s available to me. I first noticed the lump back in December and have been trying since then to source the funds.  It’s grown 10 times as big in 6 months and is at risk of claiming her life

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.
