Medical Help For Hurricane Katrina Pets

My toy poodle and I evacuated from New Orleans with very little resources. My dog is showing ill signs of constipation, shiverings, and blood in his stool. I cannot afford and do not have any knowledge of any vets clinic that are willing to see to my Ko Ko. Receiving medical attention free of charge will be one the best Christmas gift for me and defintely for ko ko. If anyone has any info regarding this matter, please let me know.

Humane society vets generally cost quite a bit less than other vets. They might set up a payment plan too. I think most vets would set up a plan also, especially considering your circumstances. Contact a local rescue & they might help you. You can usually find them through vets or pet supply places like Pet Supplies Plus, Petsmart etc. This sounds serious & your dog should be seen immediately. She counts on you to do what's best for her. I doubt any vet would turn you away, regardless.

THIS SOUNDS LIKE THE PARVO VIRUS BUT I'M NOT A VET. IT IS OBVIOUS THAT YOUR NEW PET NEEDS MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY. MOST VETS WILL SET UP A PAYMENT PLAN AND LET YOU PAY A FEW DOLLARS A MONTH. THE YELLOW PAGES IN YOUR PHONE BOOK HAS LISTINGS FOR ALL THE VETS IN YOUR AREA. TAKE KOKO TO THE VET IMMEDIATELY.
