This grant helped us to get Lillian the medications and tests that she required in order for her to live a normal life not in pain.

How many pets did this grant help?


Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

The money was used for Lillian, who was sick with gallbladder disease. She had an ultrasound and we found out she had a clogged gallbladder, so she could have been having some gallbladder attacks and thus was in pain. Therefore she needed medications and is still on Denamarin, which is helping her liver. She is also on Actigall, which keeps her gallbladder cleaned out. Since we were able to provide her with the needed medications, she is now able to live in her wonderful forever home. Lillian has a lot of energy and she just wants to be a dog.

Lillian is 13 years old now and was let go at the age of 12. Senior dogs are hard to get adopted, especially when they are sick! She is doing very well now and has a very loving, caring family. They stay in touch, too.
