Hello everyone, I appologize for bringing up yet another financial issue but this is a serious problem for me because these rats are part of my family and I’m doing all I can for them but it’s not enough.
Ivan, the one with the lump there, has been on antibiotics for the past 2 weeks or so but his lump isn’t going away. In fact, it’s getting bigger.
The problem is, his vet bills were upwards of 180 dollars already, and on top of that, his cage mate Ichabod has gotten a respiratory infection (This is common in rats but also deadly as it can make them suffocate to death if it’s not tended to)
Here is a clip of what Ichabod’s breathing is currently like: http://jitterbugjive.tumblr.com/post/99649306804
Ivan’s cyst might need to go in for analysis so they can diagnose it properly, and he may be looking at an operation so overall costs could go up in the 300s, and the medication for Ichabod tends to cost around 60 dollars from what I’ve experienced in the past.
I love my babies, I really do, and I want to help them so badly but the costs are just so overwhelming right now and I’m asking if anyone would be willing to help them out.
I’m taking Ivan to the vet tomorrow, but I want to be able to take Ichabod as well so he can get medicine. But I need money to do that, money I don’t currently have because I’ve spent a good deal of what I have right now in order to sell prints at Ponyville Ciderfest and this all happened at once out of nowhere. It was really awful timing, and I’m working on so many projects and things that I owe that I just can’t pile more on myself right now.
So please, if anyone wants to donate to help cover these vet bills, I would be very grateful, and I’m sorry there isn’t much else I can offer right now in exchange for my gratitude since I’m practically bled dry on what I can do.
