Hi all – One of the CD’s best friends Blitzkrieg and his family have found themselves in the unfortunate situation of having to find immediate healthcare for Blitz. Over the last few years he has developed a fatty tumor which over the past few months has become a size larger than a basketball. The tumor is begnign, but it shows no sign of slowing down it’s growth rate. Blitz is an otherwise healthy 13ish y/o Shepard/Rott mix. Still doing well despite this discomfort.
His mom and I have been to both Rainier Vet and Broadway Vet. Our dilemma; the lowest estimated cost we can find for removing the tumor is $1200. Never a good time to come upon a vet bill of that size. Will certainly always consider insurance from here on out and I suggest that for all in moving forward.
So, Chef Brenda Lee and I are reaching out to our neighbors in the hope of all suggestions or ideas. Any in the hood resouces available? I’ve looked for teaching hospitals or veterinary colleges with no success. No surprise King County Animal Care and Control shows absolutely no help on the “Care” end of their name. My conversations with them are unsurprisingly all about “Control”.
We’re pretty optimistic that you’ll all help in coming up with great ideas as we are always impressed with the outpouring of good wishes and support everyone in this great neighborhood of ours shares. No surprises there.
Happy Spring and all our best,
Martin, Brenda, Bliz and Blu
