My story

Belle is a 3 year old entire tri coloured short coated collie. She was originally an unwanted farm dog, she then spent 8 months in a home (mostly kennelled outdoors) but came into our care in early March 2020 as she and the other dogs weren't getting along. Belle was rehomed but returned after six weeks as she snapped at the mans lower leg.

On her return we noticed that at times she appeared to have an unusual gait with her back legs. Following an initial examination by our Vet they agreed something was not as it should be and took x-rays which at first were inconclusive. After a second opinion it now appears that whilst her hips are fine there is some abnormality towards the bottom of her spine which could possibly be nerve compression or a tumour.

The only real diagnosis can be by MRI scan at a potential cost of £3000.

Without this and then a decision on how to proceed her condition is likely to get worse over time and cause more pain although it can be managed in the short term with medication. Palliative care may be our only option but we feel we need to explore all options and to consider any medical procedures that might benefit her quality of life.

We appreciate these are difficult times and we will find the funds somehow but if you are able to help by making a donation of any amount we would be very grateful.
