Jasmine Needs Your Help

dog health problems, dog skin problems, dog health illness symptomsYou may remember her from her guest post “Leak under the Kitchen Sink.” Jana Rade is one of the most dedicated pet owners I have encountered, and now she and her family are in need of our help.

Today’s blog will be dedicated to helping Jasmine. Jasmine has had a difficult road as a dog, suffering from one medical mystery to the next. Lucky for Jasmine, she was blessed with truly loving and committed pet parents that didn’t stop when veterinarian after veterinarian dismissed their list of abnormal dog health symptoms.

Though it has taken many surgeries, and avenues of treatment, both traditional and eastern, Jasmine has pulled through each battle triumphantly. Now though they are faced with the horrible reality of being having no more financial funds and the decision is upon them that no pet owner ever wants to face: how far can we go for treatment?

For Jana and her husband Jerry, it really is a matter of can and not should. Jasmine is merely troubled by a skin infection this time, a fairly common dog illness, and they do want to continue treatment, but are simply tapped out. Please read their story here, and consider contributing. Every dollar helps.
