Buster the dog was put down at appoximately 11:00 am today.

She was a sweet baby girl right up until she went under sedation. Thank you all for your help and thoughs for us.

The dog went back to the vet today to get her gum growth removed. We were right to put this above getting surgery for her leg now. They checked out her lungs because she's been having trouble breathing when she's asleep.

She has a growth on her lungs. They can't really do anything about it.

Fuck. Just...fuck. My dog might have cancer, but I'm not sure. At any rate, I think we're just going to take care of her at home and leg her leg heal as much as possible while...yeah.

Thanks to everyone who gave us some money through the PayPal button. It's really helped us with all these vet bills even though we haven't spent it on what we said we would. It's still all going toward her medical care. Thank you.

Edit: I got her back from the vet and the growth is worse than I had hoped. It's big and pressing on her heart and diaphram. Her lungs have a lot of fluid. We can't do anything but give her antibiotics and keep her comfortable.

I just...I don't know what to do. I'm devastated.

I took the dog to the surgery center today, after a merry run-around trying to find it.

She hasn't had the surgery. Because it's going to be $2,500 at minimum. That's the estimate.

Also, she has a highly elevated white blood count. She's got a growth on her gum, which she's had before and it was biopsied and found to be benign. But the surgeon is worried.

So, maybe she also has cancer. We don't know.

Also, I am instructed to buy a crate-she is not supposed to walk until the surgery and then not for six weeks *after*. Oh my god. Remember, this is a dog that catches critters and jumps the fence reguarlly. She will hate this.

PayPal button is still open. But I just don't even know when the surgery will be. The money that has come in has reimbursed the existing vet bills, and I thank everyone for that.

Just...fuck.

Yay

The PayPal account is working now and the money came through. I hope everyone can still cover it, since it's so close to the end of payday for most people.

THANK YOU ALL. Thank you. It was over $450.00. That will help a great deal. I'm so happy right now. I'm also scared to death of PayPal, so I hope it's not lying to me.

Thank you so much.

So, my dog Buster is eleven years old. She loves to hunt and chase things-squirrels, birds, doesn't matter. Nobody ever told her she was getting older and she still likes to romp around like a three year old dog.

This past weekend, she was running and snapped a ligament in her back right leg. She will need surgery for it next week. I don't know how much we're going to need, but the visit just to get her x-rayed was $285. And for this, she has to see a specialist.

So...here's my paypal button for Buster's surgery. If you can donate anything I'd really love you forever. I will probably put this on my fic lj too. She needs this, since the only other thing to do would be keep her on pain meds, and that's no solution. Thank you.

Edit: It will probably take a couple of days to verify the donations, because PayPal is being skittish about our bank for some reason. We think it's going to be fine, but if you want to wait a couple of days, that's cool.
