IMO, just like "human" medical insurance, pet insurance should ALSO cover pre-existing conditions then go-funding wouldn't be necessary Unfortunately, that's not the case, in America or Canada it would seem, so every cent counts! BONUS: The U.S.D, as of this post, translates to roughly $1.25 +/- CAD
@Regrann from @thecrohnicles.insta - (...) For the past 3 weeks I've been admitted and receiving some of the best care I have ever been provided. Being blasted with treatment from all angles .. my Crohn's Disease is beginning to stabilize and the colon cancer remains at bay ready to be surgically removed.
The more pressing update isn't actually with me, but with my service dog, Max. If it wasn't enough that I'm on a surgical waitlist, Max had to get himself into trouble and end up on a surgical waitlist of his own!
Immediately before I came into the hospital I noticed Max favouring one of his hind legs. Max is one tough guy, having once hidden a leg broken in 3 places from over a dozen people during his time as a rescue, seeing him show discomfort I knew something was seriously wrong. Off to the vet we went and a diagnosis I was afraid of: Max has a torn cruciate ligament (the dog-equivalent of an ACL tear) and without surgical intervention he'll never be able to work full time as a service dog again. Without my service dog, even if/when I beat cancer, I won't have a decent quality of life to return to.
The amazing @shitless has started a Go Fund Me to cover Max's surgical expenses, which can be found here: https://www.gofundme.com/a3fby-service-dog-in-need-of-surgery
If my story or Max's has touched you in some way, it would mean the world to me for you to donate, share, and support us. I will be doing my best to continue to update y'all on both of our progress. All my love and many many spoons _
