    Default Help Needed! Fiona needs surgery.

    Fiona needs surgery, if you are interested in making a donation, you can verify Fiona's issue through the vet and have 3 options. 1) Send a donation to the vet 2) PayPal or 3) GoFundMe. I only offered the GoFundMe as an option.

    TO CONTACT THE VET DIRECTLY:
    Quincy Animal Hospital
    1750 West Jefferson Street
    Quincy, FL 32351
    (850)875-4811

    Their website: Home

    My vet is Dr. Beth May. She is aware that people may call to verify/donate. If the girls at the desk are confused (they are so busy!), ask them to call me. My cell is 850-590-9554 or my direct work number 850-717-6496

    If you still would like to donate via GoFundMe, contact me privately.

    I don't get a chance to post very often, especially since I tore my achilles tendon, then my hamstring and am in college and working full time, and I've never asked for help before. Fiona has stopped walking and the surgery to get her hip done (hip dysplasia) is astronomical. I always keep money for emergency vet visits around, but this week has been over $400 and I won't be able to save up enough for the surgery until December and she is in such pain that it's just not fair to keep her waiting. Yes, this is the SAME girl I had fixed and treated for positive heartworms etc. She has had such a hard life.

    I have a gofundme up that I just made an hour ago, but donations can also be sent to the vet or to paypal. All of the information is on the gofundme site. If anyone chooses to donate directly to the vet, please make sure you let me know here or by email or by phone so I can keep a tally of how much has come in because I would like to have her in surgery as quickly as possible. She is on good meds now, eating well and is enjoying being carried everywhere (to potty etc) but those moments when it hurts... her crying... it's killing me too.

    PM me for the link to the gofundme. If you have any questions, please let me know. Feel free to contact the vet to verify that this is real and not a scam. Please share on your facebook/twitter as well and feel free to use my full name/contact number.

    Thank you all.

    Danielle, Herschel and Fiona

    Sadly, my vet does not take any of the care credit etc. The other orgs don't seem to cover this. Still looking though.

    I will. I'm just in tears. I've always donated to others for things like this so I'm hoping that karma comes back around.

    my heart goes out to you! I'm in the process of getting approved for a mortgage so I can't donate now, but I won't forget when this financial scrutiny is over. im so so sorry to hear about Fiona. Bless her heart for being a good pup and bless yours for carrying her and the financial burden of her care.

    Thanks so much. She is being a trooper. Eating and drinking well, and the vet said Fiona is quite possibly the most stubborn bullie she has ever seen. Fiona is in pain, but we are trying to manage that... she is however enjoying the fact that she is being carried outside and around a lot. (thank goodness she is only 44lbs... Herschel is 55lbs now).

    If this had happened in December, I could cash out my annual leave at work and it would be fine... or if I hadn't gone back to school this semester. Life is always so unpredictable.

    We did raise $30 tonight and I am hoping that people are going to donate directly to my vet. That would be just fine with me. The sooner we can get her in, the sooner we can get her on the mend!

    She is still in a lot of pain. The gofundme campaign is at 120 so at this rate I'll be able to get her in by next month. The vet got a couple of direct donations too.

    Quick update. She is hobbling around better now and really loves being carried. I'm trying to find a nice wagon someone wants to get rid of to take her in and out. With my recent injuries, carrying her is making me hobble around too. The gofundme campaign is at 170 dollars now. My vet said she is a perfect candidate for the FHO. She is great with bulldogs and treated many while she was in school at UGA. I'm so proud of Fiona and her toughness through this.

    @Danielle I hope you get the help you need, sorry I have no credit card and being in Australia makes it difficult, what a wonderful mum you are and Fiona must be a real troopper !
    I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source
