No One Should Have To Lose a Beloved Family member because of the Cost of Fighting Epilepsy

News

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here. As I mentioned last week, my huMom & I are always sniffing out information & making connections on the inter webs. We follow several pages & groups that are about Canine Epilepsy.

One topic that almost never comes up is how expensive living with canine epilepsy can be. There is a lot of social stigma about discussing finances & people who are just scraping by are often too embarrassed to discuss their situation.

Many good dogs, myself included must take a cocktail of medications every day. Each one of them is costly. Some epilepsy medications are only available through a compound pharmacy which increases the cost even more. Then there is the added cost of prescription fees. On top of that annual blood work (mine are due this month) is mandatory to monitor the health of Liver & Kidneys. Both organs can be stressed by AEDs (anti epileptic medication).

For some canine epi warriors, emergency runs to an animal hospital happen as well, which can also result in a huge medical bill.

It’s for these reasons we support the Wally Foundation ~ Canine Epilepsy. Their mandate is simple; to offer financial assistance to those who have an epileptic companion animal & are struggling financially. As I’ve stated in previous posts, Rick Selwood, founder & director of the foundation believes no one should have to lose a beloved family member because of the cost of fighting epilepsy.

With this being, “the season of giving”, I’m asking everyone who is able, to make a holiday donation to the Wally Foundation ~ Canine Epilepsy. I’m sure it will make you feel absolutely pawsome to know you’ll be helping to keep a family together or helping a lonely senior from being completely alone.

You could start by entering my silent auction. November is Epilepsy Awareness Month & this year I’m observing it by raising money for the Wally Foundation by auctioning off some wooftastic items. All the details are pinned to the top of my Facebook page, “Oh, the life of Olivia“.

If you’d like to simply make a cash donation, you can do it through PayPal.
