My little dog had suddenly fallen ill after just the day before being able to run and play catch. He had to have emergency surgery to remove some stones that blocked the flow of urine and caused extensive damage to his bladder and scrotum. He has had to stay in the hospital for a number of days and recovery at this time is unsure. At the time of his illness we were willing to do anything to keep him alive since he is like a member of the family. Because the condition caught us completely off guard and unprepared we now face a mountain of vet bills. Does anyone know if there are organizations that help people in these situations? Would it be wrong of me to ask for assistance in my community? Who can help me?
