Meet Tuddy - Tuddy was came to us with severe heartworms. He has since been treated but it left behind scarring in his lungs that can make it hard for him to breath and makes him very susceptible to kennel cough. Late last year, he was somehow exposed to kennel cough but due to his constant persistent cough, we didn't recognize it until he was very ill. Tuddy was walking across the yard after barking at a car across the street and he just collapsed from lack of oxygen. We rushed him to the ER where he spent one night, then he was moved to the Village Vets of Decatur for Oxygen theraphy and 24 hour care for 3 days.
Total Cost: $2100
This was paid out of the checking account but it took away from the funds we were able to spend on current veterinary needs (listed below)
