In June 2018 Bodie was our first retired dog requiring help. Unfortunately he was diagnosed with mouth cancer which had caused an infection and required the removal of a number of teeth. Due to his age his owner Ali has decided that it is best to manage his diagnosis rather than put him through advanced cancer treatment. As it stands, Bodie Bear is defying the vet and doing exceptionally well, although going a little deaf! He needed some extra treatment for an ear infection in March 2019.
Update – Unfortunately we had to help Bodie again in Dec 2020 as he had to have a few teeth out and was suffering with his kidneys and an ear infection.
So far since setting up Pawsome Pensions, Ali has faced unexpected vets bills of over £1500. We are so pleased to have been able to pay £973 towards these bills. As Bodie is getting older and his mouth cancer progresses he will most likely require more help, which is something we will be here to help with. Bodie is a great example of why Pawsome Pensions have set up and got going, ensuring we can try and help towards the best veterinary care for Bodie and all Pawsome Pensions Dogs.
In October 2018 Blitz was the second dog we helped. Unfortunately he had a little problem in his rear end! Blitz had an infection in his anal glands, all dogs owners might appreciate the pong of such an issue, and obviously the discomfort for the dog.
The treatment for this cost was an unexpected whopping £1,035. Blitz was insured, however the insurance company refused to honour the payment sadly. Pawsome Pensions managed to give his owner Lou £500 towards her bill, which was greatly appreciated.
Blitz has unfortunately since needed a bit of help with a skin infection. We helped with £77 towards the bill.
Blitz has had a few issues now and most certainly Pawsome Pensions assistance has assisted with Blitz receiving the best care he can have.
In October 2018 Jack became very unwell and it wasn’t looking good and ended up having to have major surgery due to bladder stones. Jack made a fantastic recovery due to his treatment and is back running around again now. His owner Mark had a bill of £1,772 and Jack will need ongoing tests and medications to manage this in the future. So far those further tests and medications have come to £379 as of February 2019.
Pawsome Pensions helped Jack with £835 towards his operation and will support him into in the future with his tests and medication. We have contributed a further £139 towards these so far in Feb 2019. The treatment Jack received was life saving and expensive. Pawsome pensions assistance at the time and further assistance with medication ensured the treatment for Jack was possible.
PD Jack was helped by Pawsome Pensions in May 2019 as he requires on going medication for Arthritis and Spondylosis. We paid £247 towards his medication and will be continually assisting whenever possible.
Update – Pawsome Pensions have helped with a further £507 towards Jacks medication in Jan 2020. This assistance means Jack can continually receive his required medication enabling him to lead a nice retirement with his owner Phil.
In July 2019 Pawsome Pensions helped with £176 towards Mavericks veterinary visits for Anal Furunculosis ……… Poor chap. Sadly Maverick lost his fight and went over the rainbow bridge in the September, But hopefully his treatment before hand assisted Maverick keeping him comfortable.
In January 2020 we helped Molly GSD with £516 towards her veterinary care for an underactive Thyroid, Weak bladder muscle and painkillers for a shoulder Injury sustained whilst working. Our assistance has helped towards the testing, diagnosis and ongoing treatment of Mollies problem, enabling her to receive a treatment plan for the future, ensuring she remains fit and healthy and able to receive a fab retirement regularly running around on Exmouth Beach.
In August 2019 RPD Loki needed a little help with the an ear and skin infection. Pawsome Pensions paid £70 towards the final bill. This made Loki a lot more comfortable and able to get back to full health as soon as possible.
