I never knew it was possible to love an animal so much, until I got Brutus. I watched him be born. We’ve basically been together since day one. He’ll be 10 on November 23, 2014.
We’ve moved across the country together. He’s my best friend. He’s like a child to me, especially after I found out a few years ago that I’ll probably never have children. Brutus has been there with me and for me through all of the ups and downs. When my sister passed away, the love of Brutus and my husbands support are the only things that got me through it.
You can imagine my terror when we were awoken in the wee hours of the morning to Brutus having a terrible seizure. He’s never had any health problems. This was terrifying. Then, a few nights ago it happened again. We don’t know if there have been other seizures before this, that we weren’t home for. Now I can’t even bring myself to leave him alone, for fear of another seizure.
If you’ve ever seen anyone, human or animal, have a seizure then you know how terrifying it is, and how helpless you feel.
We took him to the vet, of course. We’ve had every test they could do there. He had a complete physical. Urine and fecal analysis. Full panel blood test. Thyroid test. Checked his prostate, his anus, ears, eyes… everything they could do. Even a heartworm test. All the tests have come back clean and negative. So, while that is good. It also does not give us any answers as to why, at 9 years old, our otherwise very healthy senior dog started having seizures.
The only option we have left is to take him to have Xrays and an MRI. These are very costly tests. The MRI alone is over $3,ooo. Not to mention medication and/or treatment he may need.
I vow to give any remaining donations that exceed his vet bills to a local rescue or the ASPCA.
Please help us! Every dollar and every donation helps. We have to find out what’s wrong with Brutus. I am so scared for him, and I am NOT ready to lose my baby yet. So please, I hope you can find it in your heart to help us. Until we have enough money for these additional tests, we won’t know whats wrong with him. Or if it can kill him, or if he’ll have another seizure.
Please give any amount you can.
Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. ❤
