My name is Beverly and I live in Clearwater, FL. I am part owner of Simba who is a American Eskimo. He is a rescue dog that we got 2 years ago. Last Thurs 1/10/13 we noticed he was peeing blood. We took him to Tampa Bay Veterinary Specialists and Emergency Care Center in Largo, FL. They did several tests on him. They found out that he has ITP/ Immune Mediated Thrombocytomenia. He has NO Platelets in his blood, ZERO, ZIP. So, they had to keep him because he could bleed to death. They were given medication by mouth and IV's. The second medication are working for him. The platelets are up to 3,000 but need to be between 20,000 to 40,000 before they release him. He will be taking medication after they release him and needs to go back for blood work plus check ups. He is very healthy besides this.
I am on disablity and can not afford to pay the bill. The bill so far is $2,000.00. I really need help paying his bill.
He is at
Tampa Bay Veterinary Specialists and Emergency Care Center
