Last year we found out Pomba had Leishmaniosis.
The approach for this in my country is sacrificing it, but since the problem is with mosquitoes, I moved to someplace where the vector cant breed and avoid the disease from spreading.
I did everything i could, spent a lot of cash, but the disease is advancing and she is pretty old (12 yo), and she also has artritis.
I do treat everything, from the skin, special soap, spray, condroitine for the articulations. She wears a special collar which repels any mosquito and protects the surroundings. My other younger dog Calvin already got the vaccine and wears the collar too... So everyone else is protected. Including me and my wife.
But today i went to the vet and found out there is indeed a CURE for this... Itīs a brand new medicine called Milteforan which significantly decreases the parasite taxes.
I did everything i could so far, but this medicine is way too expensive.. itīs 400 euros, but in brasil that goes up 4x with local currency: around 1600 reais.
Iīm barely having money to pay my bills, the country is going through a tough crisis and economical recession. So all i come here to ask for, is any help i can get in order to raise 1600 reais ( approximately 550 us dollars). I just need to buy this medicine, and give Pomba my last shout of hope. It is very sad to see the disease spreading, and even though i know she will die eventually because of the age, i will make all the effort i can to give her quality of life... i will try putting up some pictures of her...
Thanks in advance.
