JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

Hello, I'm Dr. Kara. I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian and I'd like to help. Please give me a moment to review your concerns.

I understand that your pup isn't well and you are in a tough spot financially.

If your regular veterinarian is beyond your means financially now your other option is to contact your local shelter or humane society and see if they run a low cost clinic or know of one in your area.

Some emergency clinics will perform humane euthanasia if a pup is terminally ill and an owner cannot afford treatment, so I would try to contact local emergency clinics.

If not here is a web-page that lists some shelters that may be able to help:
