I have had Harry since 2002, he was about three, given to me by a student I taught in school after my mother passed. Somehow he just knew that Harry would help me endure the heartache I was feeling from my loss. Harry is a 14 year-old Shih Tzu that I adore and love! I am a senior citizen now and Harry has not had any medical issues until last year. We woke up that morning to blood all over the bedroom carpet and went into a panic not knowing what had happened. He has anal glands that were infected and burst. We took him to the vet who says he would have to have surgery which we could not afford.
They are starting to get infected again and bleed. I am so afraid he is going to ruin the carpet on my new landlady's carpet! The vet says he will have to have surgery to remove them and antibotics for the infection. He also has a growth that is growing on his left part of his back that is increasing in growth. I think that Fay have something to do with the infection. She stated that she would have to take a sample of the fluid to see how to proceed further.
With my husband unemployed and me having surgery myself and other medical issues, and the only income, I have not been able to go back to the vet to further the treatment for him. Please help us help Harry. If I can't get my little friend the treatment he needs, I will have to find him a new home. I DON'T want to lose him at all!
