After a fun day out with Piper and our grandchildren we returned home and things changed for us. Piper could not stand up or walk and when she would try she would fall over. Being scared and from the advise of our vet we ran Piper to the emergency vet hospital. That's just the beginning. Only 19 weeks old at the time this was so hard on Piper. We had several visits back and forth to the vet and the ER hospital, over night stays, blood work, x-rays, ultrasounds and MRI. After a visit with a neurologist Piper was diagnosed with Atlantoaxial Subluxation (AA Lux or AA Luxation). Piper was born without ligament support to her first two vertebraes. After a visit to NCSU Neurology Veterinary Hospital Piper was put in a brace and has to stay in a crate most of the time. Only getting out to be feed and going to the bathroom. She will be in a brace for up to 2 months. They are waiting until she is older for surgery. The surgery is set for January 2017.
Piper is such a sweet baby girl and so young and we want to give her a chance and we need your help to do this. We love her more than words can say. We have already spent a big amount of money just trying to get the diagnose and that's not even counting the trips back and forth of a hour and a half drive just to the neurologist to have here brace changed once a week, the cost of the vet visits and the surgery. Please help us. No amount is too small. God bless you all and thanks for reading Piper's Story.
[UPDATE 2/12/17 FROM Daphne M.]: Piper had her surgery on Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017. She came home on Thursday, Jan. 26, 2017. Her surgery was a success. She is up and walking. She is still a little wobbly but with time I'm sure she will get better. She started laser therapy on Friday, Feb. 3, 2017. I see Piper making a full recovery. I want to thank everyone that made this possible by donating and helping us to be able to afford the surgery that Piper needed to live a full and happy life.
All Chances complete 30 days after they are first Submitted for Verification by the Pet Owner. The reason they end at all is because credit card refunds must be issued if the funds cannot be raised and, therefore, the treament will not be provided.
So, if a Chance will not be fulfilled by a doctor/provider within 30 days, the money must be refunded to the people who made donations.
Shortly before the Chance completion date Pet Chance will try to work with the doctor/provider to see if the treatment can be fulfilled with partial funding.
Our goal is to fullfil as many Chances as possible!
We call it Pet Care Assurance...
At Pet Chance, our goal is to empower pet owners to make the right decisions for their pets. By funding Chances where owners have already incurred debt we are giving the next owner facing that daunting decision confidence to provide their pet with the care it needs.
The more Chances where treatment was already provided to get funded, the more likely it is owners (and vets) will make the right medical decision first, and handle the financial obligation after the fact.
We encourage you to support the work we do to help pets and their owners so we can continue to run PetChance.org.
Our world-class customer service and national impact has honored us with Top Nonprofit awards from Great NonProfits. We can only do this thanks to your generous contributions!
